Autumn is here and what better way to kick off the change in season than with a get-together. Here are some easy tips on how to throw a memorable fall party!
LOOK TO NATURE
Fall colors are so warm and inviting. Go outside, pick up a bunch of leaves and decorate your table setting with them. It will make a difference, I promise!
BRING BACK POLAROIDS
Instead of name cards, take an instant snap while guests mingle before the meal. Take a photo and balance it on the table when they’re ready to sit.
SET THE MOOD WITH MUSIC
And if the music is right, you dance! Set the vibe right with some playful tunes. There’s nothing better than mingling with people while tapping your foot to tunes you like. And if the toe tapping turns to booty shaking, then go with it!
GIVE YOUR GUESTS A PARTING GIFT
What could be better than enjoying a night with good company, a fully belly and leaving with a little gift?! Nothing. Make your get together a memorable one by giving your guests a small take away. The hope is that you’ve created a wonderful experience for them from the minute they stepped in to your home to the second they said good-bye.
