The weather is cooling down and the colors all around us are changing. Fall is here and filling our heads and our hearts with warmth, comfort and a desire for all things pumpkin spiced. If you are planning an event this fall, take advantage of the season by including elements of autumn.
Try choosing a warm and inviting color palette to enhance your event space. Try coral, orange and grey earthy tones with hints of peach, pink and lavender. Green tones and mixed jewel tones would also warm up a beautiful autumn night.
Make lighting a priority to bring your fall event the warmth and coziness of flickering candles, Edison lights, and possibly some indoor/outdoor Café lights to set a romantic and dimly lit mood. Add large lanterns to luminate the aisle ways or entry ways to add a magical and romantic ambiance.
Incorporate cozy lounge areas complete with baskets of throw blankets for outdoor events, and candle light on indoor tables to give your guests a warm and inviting place to gather. Add accent pillows to your couches and fall flowers all around to really drive home the feeling of romance and warmhearted joy. Fall themed textiles and fabrics can really enhance the look and feel of your table settings as well. Try adding twill, tweed, wood, velvet, or satin to tie the entire room together for your fall event.
Warm up your guests’ bellies with comfort food and drinks. As the weather gets cooler, it’s always great to incorporate some warmth through favorite foods such as tomato soup shots with grilled cheese bites, mac and cheese, mini sliders, and mini fried chicken and waffle bites. Don’t forget to also transition the comfort food theme into your dessert selections. Incorporate items like warm apple pie, cinnamon walnut bars, and milk and cookies. Don’t forget to add pumpkin spiced lattes, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and other fall favorite beverages to your coffee and tea stations.
Take advantage of the fall season and use the beauty of the changing colors to your advantage at your next autumn event. By embracing the beauty of the season, you are bringing the elements of nature into your event and allowing your guests to enjoy to romance of Fall.
