Event Planning In The Fall

Event Planning In The Fall

For the love of Fall!

The crisp weather, pumpkin spice lattes, and spooky holidays are right around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! As we dive into this cozy season, we get to unveil new and exciting decor. The autumn theme brings a beautiful color pallet and aesthetic that you don’t want to miss out on! Here are some ways you can bring fall alive in your events and celebrate the season.

Fall Decor

The first choice for most people when decorating for fall is pumpkins. Don’t get us wrong, harvest items like pumpkins and squashes are a great addition to any decor, but you want to come up with more thoughtful choices first to take your space to the next level. You want to add warmth to the area to help counteract the chilly temperatures outside.

Using natural accents in your decor is always a great way to incorporate the season into your event, no matter which season it is. Each one brings its own natural beauty, so utilizing that in your decor will save you time and money. You want to embrace the foliage. Fall has a great rustic beauty with colorful leaves and plants getting ready for the winter months. Head outside and gather broken branches, dried leaves and plants, and seasonal blooms as decor pieces. These natural items remind us of the crisp, cool weather outside and the beauty that comes with it. To enhance your fall foliage, you can add earthy elements to the mix. Paring natural and artificial objects can be very beneficial when decorating a space. Try using rustic frames and furniture, wood, wreaths, candles, wicker, and twine.

Rustic Color Pallet

Fall hues are bright, dark, warm, cozy, and overall vibrant. They radiate the essence of the season and are inspired by the seasonal color changing of the leaves. When nature is showing off, your event should too! Depending on your space, you can use these tones as accent pieces and tie everything together. You want these colors to pop, not take over. Use colored textiles to accent your established decor and tables.

There are a variety of ways to get the perfect color pallet for your event. You can use a pallet generator or look up already completed ones. Establishing a set pallet will make it easier for you to stick to it and not add too many colors that may contrast one another. A pallet guarantees that you are using shades that blend nicely and will not overload the senses. When creating the pallet, keep in mind the color of the decorations you have chosen.

Flavors of Fall

If you are planning a fall event, you want to indulge in the senses. The smell of your event is essential in creating an atmosphere for your guests. Spice up your event with some fall scents that can help set the mood and make your event more inviting to your attendees. 

  • Pumpkin Spice 
  • Apple Cinnamon 
  • Apple Cider 
  • Sandalwood 
  • Bonfire 
  • Brown Sugar Vanilla

If you are serving food, you don’t want the smells to clash with the taste. When using scents, it’s better to use small objects that have scents like candles as party favors or scented decor.

Speaking of food, you can also use fall favorites when planning your menu. Using foods in harvests like squash, pumpkin, apples, vegetables, corn, and potatoes will keep your menu fresh and in season. Warm and hardy courses like stews, roasts, soups, and warm baked goods are comforting and are a great addition to your fall menu.

It is always hard to say goodbye to summer, but fall brings so many fantastic opportunities for event planners! We hope you are just excited as we are for this colorful season and appreciate all the fantastic things you can do for your event.
