With chilly nights, changing leaves, and the return of football, fall is officially here! All of that means one thing: fall entertaining with close friends and family! This year more than ever, enjoying good company at home is a great way to get in the fall mood. Here are several ways you can spruce up your outdoor living area for the season:
Enjoy a bonfire. Crisp fall weather is perfect for gathering around a fire. Furniture of Dalton has a great selection of fire pits to compliment any outdoor area! Whether you will be hosting friends for an outdoor tailgate or gathering with immediate family to roast marshmallows for s’mores, a cozy fire screams fall fun.
Enjoy all of the fall food favorites. Fall food is amazing, and enjoying it outside by the fire makes it even better! Keep it simple with wood-fired pizzas on the Big Green Egg, or take it to the next level with Brown Sugar and Pineapple Roasted Acorn Squash. Serve up warm apple cider to the whole family, or try this delicious spiked Apple Cider for the adults. Don’t forget something sweet! Set up a caramel apple bar and let the kids and adults alike get creative with their toppings.
Host a pumpkin carving party. Once you find the perfect pumpkins in the patch, invite over the neighbors for an old fashioned pumpkin carving! Print out fun design templates for everyone or have fun with the templates that come in your carving kit. Save the pumpkin seeds for roasting and toss them in salads, granola, or use in desserts! Add a little friendly competition by having everyone vote for their favorite pumpkin, or keep it fun and lighthearted by simply admiring all of the awesome creations.
Create a Fall Harvest Centerpiece. This DIY Fall Harvest Centerpiece from HGTV is the perfect addition to any fall get-together! With simple, step-by-step instructions and minimal materials required, this centerpiece is easy to put together and will look great on your outdoor dining set or seating area. Incorporating cinnamon sticks, apples, and fall foliage will set the tone for your fall outdoor gatherings and is sure to impress your guests.
Enjoy an outdoor Halloween Party. With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, it is the perfect timing for a Halloween party! No matter how you chose to celebrate the festive holiday, keeping everyone outside not only helps you practice social distancing, but also takes the pressure of cleaning the inside of your house off of you! Serve chili, hot dogs, and other fun finger foods while enjoying all of the costumes and spooky decorations! Check out Furniture of Dalton’s Pinterest for more Halloween Decor ideas.
