Let’s celebrate the season with wonderful ideas for making your fall festivities extra special. Whether it’s a milestone birthday, a new baby on the way, or showering a wife-to-be, we have tons of tips for making the day perfect. So grab a pumpkin spice latte and settle in for some fall fun.
- It’s a sign of the times
Say hello to fall with a printable sign. They come in seasonal messages that say “Falling In Love,” “Autumn Blessings,” and “Grateful Thankful Blessed.” All the signs are circled by gorgeous leaves to surround the saying with fall colors. The signs can be downloaded instantly and hanging on your wall in just minutes.
- From farm to table to a happy ending
Celebrate a milestone anniversary in a field surrounded by family and friends. Host an elegant farm to table party featuring recently harvested vegetables, fruits, and other fall goodies. Place the happy couple at the center of the table so they can chat with everyone there. Celebrate with a pretty cake strewn with wildflowers plucked from the fields.
- Black and white and read all over
Minimalist script in a black font on a white background has a clean, polished look. It works for invitations, signs, tags, place cards, and other items for all your fall gatherings. Instantly print out the “Please help the mama to be by making yourself the addressee” and place it near a stack of envelopes at a baby shower.
- An axe to grind but we don’t mind
Axe throwing is the latest trend for bachelorette parties -- but don’t worry, it’s completely safe! Axe throwing locations are popping up all over and make a fun night out with the bride-to-be. These buffalo plaid hair scrunchies are perfect for handing out at the party to make sure that hair is out of the way of any flying axes.
- A touch of whimsy at a rustic party
Adding some whimsical touches brings elegance to a rustic, outdoor birthday party. Think gorgeous fall floral arrangements, gold-edged chargers and plates, and sequined covers draped over low tables. Use rustic wood chairs with velvet cushions in golds, oranges, and greens. Present the birthday guest of honor with a special pumpkin cake.
- The cutest pumpkin in the patch
A pumpkin baby shower is just the right theme for fall. Get ready to welcome the ‘little pumpkin on the way’ with pumpkin flavored cupcakes, décor in orange hues, and glowing pumpkins carved into little hands and feet. Give your shower guests these adorable pumpkin hair ties to remember the memorable celebration for the mom-to-be.
- Fall in love with a fall leaf cake
A cake decorated with fall foliage adds a seasonal flair to any occasion whether it’s a birthday, shower, or wedding. Have your cake decorator add in berries, small branches, and a few fall flowers. The amount of decoration can be as much or as little as you’d like but the simple and minimalistic look seems to be on trend right now.
- The apples of my eyes
Apple cider bars are adding some sweet treats at fall weddings. Think of tiered platters covered with apple cider donuts, cakes, pastries, and of course, cups of apple cider. Have your caterer add red, green, and yellow apples to brighten the display. Your guests will love indulging in the cider bar as they dance the night away in the crisp fall air.
- A new baby as sweet as pie
Throw a ‘Cutie-Pie’ baby shower with lots and lots of delicious pies to welcome the soon to arrive cutie-pie. Make sure to include the mom-to-be’s favorite flavors of pie plus lots of fall fillings like pumpkin, apple, and cherry. Place all the pies on pretty stands and surround each with the flavor such as pumpkins around the pumpkin pie.
- There’s always something to be thankful for
It’s not too early to be thinking about Thanksgiving which is only a few weeks away. We love the idea of having a Friendsgiving a few days before the big day to celebrate with close friends. Have everyone bring a delicious dish and set the table with a cornucopia of fall flowers. Place a “Eat, Drink, and Give Thanks” wine charm at each glass.
