7 Outstanding Ideas For Fall Entertaining

Embrace the cool and crisp temperatures of autumn by hosting an outdoor gathering with friends and fun fall activities.

(1) Backyard Oktoberfest

Can't make it to Munich this year? No worries! Set up your own Oktoberfest party right in the backyard. Include your favorite German fare, festive decor and, of course, a bier bar stocked with plenty of German beers and wines, and don't forget to dress the part in a dirndl and a fun-to-craft Bavarian flower crown.

(2) Wreath-Making Party

Instead of buying a standard store-bought wreath for fall, opt for making your own this year. While you’re at it, gather enough supplies for you and your friends to each craft one together. This is a fun and inexpensive way to create decor you'll display year after year, with the added bonus of enjoying the company of others.

(3) Autumnal Farm-To-Table Dinner Party

A great dinner party is made up of more than just delicious food. Gorgeous autumnal decor, a warm color palette and an inviting setting will take a gathering to new heights. Fall is about feeling cozy, so keep this in mind when choosing your environment, table setting and menu for the night.

(4) Candy Apple Bar

Whether you prefer candied apples or caramel apples, we can all agree that both are fantastic fall staples. A candied-apple bar complete with a wide variety of toppings is sure to win the kids over. Best of all, this is the perfect excuse to give in to that messy, childhood craving.

(5) Backyard Tailgate Party

To many of us, fall means football. And football means tailgating. This fall, turn your backyard into the ultimate tailgating experience. Cozy decor, fan-favorite recipes and fun games will make yours the talk of the season.

(6) Fall Fondue Party

Warm, delicious fondue served in a rustic bread bowl alongside a mélange of treats sounds like the perfect way to gather on a fall night. Pair your fondue with pretzels, bratwurst and a nice Oktoberfest beer, or throw some sliced apples into the mix to celebrate the season.

(7) Backyard Bonfire

Celebrate the cooler temps and crisp falling leaves with a bonfire. All you need for a successful night is a fire pit, some chairs (or logs), a few friends and, last but not least, some delicious cider.
