Making the Most of One Last Fall Outdoor Party
03 Nov, 2016
As fall marches closer to winter, it’s inevitable the weather will take a turn for the worse. But fall also serves up a lot of beautiful days. Take advantage of the milder weather to plan some fall entertaining for you and your guests while you can! You may need a jacket, but you can still enjoy the crisp fall air and the backdrop of leaves scattered on the lawn. Follow these tips to plan the perfect autumn outdoor party.
Fire up the grill
Let’s face it, a party isn’t a party without food. Your fall outdoor entertaining menu can play up some of autumn’s tasty staples like apples and squash. There are some pretty delicious ways to cook fall side dishes on the grill, like this foil-wrapped grilled butternut squash with sage meal. Grilled cinnamon apples also make an awesome dessert.
The one thing that makes people nervous about hosting an autumn outdoor party is that their guests will be too cold. To help keep them warm, use a fire pit. Bonus tip: have marshmallows on hand for roasting! You should also make sure that your outdoor furniture is inviting. Keep patio furniture pillows inside before the party to warm them up, and bring blankets outside for guests to drape over their shoulders.
