Dried Flower Invites

Invite all of your friends to your feast with invites made from kraft paper and dried flowers. Tie jute string around the envelope, and hand deliver the invitations to each of your friends to make them feel extra special.

Welcome Guests

Set the scene for your feast by placing a fall wreath at the entrance. We chose a colorful, dried flower wreath, and hung it from the front gate to welcome everyone as they arrived.

Blanket Scarves for All

Buy inexpensive blanket scarves, and roll them up in a basket. Each of your friends can grab one on the way in and stay cozy and warm throughout the night. Let guests take the scarves home as a party favor.

Sheepskin Everywhere

Use (faux) sheepskin blankets and pillows to help set a cozy scene. Place them on chairs, benches, or even on the ground to create additional seating areas.

Easy Appetizers

Prosciutto-wrapped breadsticks are one of the easiest appetizers you can prepare. Simply wrap thin slices of prosciutto around the ends of each breadstick, and stack them on a pretty plate.

Kid-Friendly Feasting

For an easy, kid-friendly appetizer, add healthy snacks to an ice cube tray. We chose a rubber ice tray in a fall-themed color, and let each kid choose their own yummy snacks.

Cheese Board Heaven

A big, bountiful cheese board is a must-have. Mix a variety of cheeses with meats, nuts, olives and fruit for a grand presentation.

Decorate With Flannel Shirts

For a simple decor idea, string a bunch of warm, flannel shirts with clothespins. Hang them around the party in different spots as a colorful, cozy decor idea. If you don't have a ton of flannels, buy some from your local thrift store.

Sparkling Apple Sangria

For your signature cocktail, make a sweet, sparkling apple sangria. Add fresh cranberries, oranges and apple slices to add fall flavor. Try our sparkling sangria recipe.

Frozen Fruit Skewers

If you want to skip a signature cocktail, prepare frozen fruit skewers instead. Choose blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, and freeze them before your party. Guests can add the skewers to their cocktails or glasses of wine.

Family-Style Main Course

In order to save space on your table, serve your fall feast meal family style. Serve a meat plate with ribs, kabobs, and pulled chicken, along with potatoes and vegetables.

A Beautiful Fall Centerpiece

Create a stunning centerpiece with greenery and fall flowers. Skip the vases, and simply lay out them out for a more natural focal point.

Soft Pretzel Bar

Create your own soft pretzel bar. Pair the pretzels with different kinds of mustard, as well as a bowl of crunchy sea salt.

Mini Pies

Wrap mini pies up with flannel ribbon. Encourage guests to grab pies to go at the end of the party. If you don't want to bake all the pies on your own, purchase pre-made pies, and ditch the packaging before serving.

Fall Bouquets

Another sweet thank you gift for your guests are these small, fall bouquets. Create a bouquet of the same flowers as the centerpiece, and wrap them in burlap with jute ribbon. Put the bouquets out in a basket by the door, so everyone can grab one on their way out.
