Fall Entertaining Ideas
05 Sep, 2014
From tailgates to Thanksgiving dinner, fall is one of the ultimate seasons for entertaining. We’re here to help you take your fall gatherings to the next level – complete with special seasonal touches. Read our fall entertaining ideas below to add some spice to your next get-together this autumn.
Host your party outside – if weather permits – for an unexpected event for guests
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you can’t entertain outside! If the weather is agreeable, consider hosting your party outdoors. You may even be able to fire up the grill if it’s warm enough. Make sure to have some blankets available for guests in case they get chilly.
Pair a fun, seasonal beverage with your entrée or appetizer
Fall is filled with tasty seasonal drinks – from mulled cider to pumpkin ale, there are a variety of autumn-inspired drinks to try! Consider mulling your own cider or adding some pumpkin spice to your after-dinner coffee drinks for a taste of the season.
Spice up your home with the season’s hottest colors and patterns
Whether you’re throwing a big dinner party or relaxing with your family, you can make your house feel more like fall with some simple décor updates. Add colors like burnt orange, mustard yellow, maroon and deep purple for a cozy, fall-like feel. Bold patterns in rich colors can work as well. In addition, centerpieces that incorporate fall vegetables and leaves are a quick and easy update to your table setting!
Host the perfect football watch party complete with team colors, themed appetizers and a great TV setup
Having friends and family over to watch the game? Wow them with a team-themed get-together. Buy or make decorations in your team’s colors, get face paint for the little ones (or for the diehard fans), and serve game-day food that matches the tailgating theme (sliders, hotdogs, etc.). You’ll also want to make sure your TV is set up for optimal viewing. If you’re considering getting a new TV for fall, browse our selection of 60” and up televisions for the ultimate viewing experience. Don’t forget the surround sound so your guests don’t miss a beat!
