Must Read Tips for Throwing an Outdoor Fall Party | RetractableAwnings.com

Backto all posts

The fall season is quickly approaching and that means near perfect weather is right around the corner. In most cases, this is the season where outdoor living space attracts all kinds of friends, family, and neighbors to gather around the home that has the best patio area. Fall evenings spent on the deck offer crisp weather that creates the ideal setting for a celebration. Whether it’s a back-to-school party for your children’s friends or an adult-friendly dinner party, throwing an outdoor fall party is a great idea for everyone with a killer outdoor space.

Words like “autumn”, “harvest”, and “fall” elicit particular feelings of relaxation and companionship. In fact, people throughout the country point to the fall season as their favorite time of the year. It’s no surprise that people find comfort in things like changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and getting back to their regular routines. Celebrating this special time of year is an excellent way to bring together loved ones for an epic party.

No matter where you live, if you have an awesome patio area then you have the makings for a great outdoor fall party! We’ve gathered some of the most essential tips for throwing an outdoor fall party that will bring people together as they enjoy each other’s company and the cool, crisp autumn weather.

Picking the Perfect Menu

A great dinner doesn’t have to be fancy. Some of the best outdoor fall parties are simple menus made up of comfort food. Casseroles and other dishes that can be premade and then heated will leave your guests feeling full and leave you with enough time free to enjoy their company. The truth is that drinks and desserts are more memorable anyway. Incorporate apple and pumpkin ingredients into as much as possible and keep the booze flowing!

Fall-Friendly Décor

Start with buying a couple large pumpkins to greet your guests as they enter your patio area. Head to a party store to find inexpensive table clothes adorned with fall leaves and autumn color schemes. Consider center pieces of candles with red, yellow, and orange flower arrangements for the perfect ensemble of harvest style.

Maximize the Outdoor Space

While fall is known for great weather, any outdoor party is weather dependent. However, with the right patio or deck awning, guests will be able to party all day regardless of the weather. Be sure to set up adequate seating around the space to encourage guests to spread out and not gather in one location. Place tables and chairs near the fire pit and throughout the patio area. Add extra pillows and throw blankets to the outdoor couches to make the patio warm and inviting.

Light It Up

String lights are perfect for an outdoor fall party. Be sure to light walkways, especially near stairs. Make use of those candles on the tables and light the fire pit early to make sure light is spread throughout the patio area. Finally, consider hanging a few lanterns on the trees out back for a fun and functional addition to the décor.

Think About a Theme

From Oktoberfest to football, fall is known for a lot of different activities. Consider choosing a theme that speaks to your particular interests and watch as everything from menu planning to decorating starts to become much easier.

Patio Awnings for the Best Fall Party Yet!

The fall season means different things to different people, but everyone can agree that the weather calls for more time spent outside. There is no better way to ring in the new season than with an outdoor fall party that utilizes and showcases your patio area, especially if you have a brand-new awning to show off.
