Celebrate the changing leaves and crisp days of fall with our easy-as-pie party theme: apples! With easy party ideas, like a trip to the orchard and an apple-inspired menu, all you need to do is relax and enjoy fall's goodness.
Add another fall flavor into the mix with our nutty butternut squash macaroni and cheese recipe. The favorite fall vegetable ups the creamy factor and adds vitamins to this fall comfort food. Serve small scoops as a side, or offer the casserole as a main dish option.
Our favorite thing about fall? Caramel apples! In just a few steps, you and your guests can be snacking on the season’s favorite treat, or you can make a batch before the party to send home as party favors.
Invite friends for a trip to the apple orchard followed by drinks and dinner at your home. Most orchards offer extended hours during picking season, which lasts through October.
Plan some fun for kids (and adults) with simple sack races. You can find plain potato sacks at online crafts stores and decorate them with felt. We stitched oversize apples to the bags for party-theme fun.
Arrange a showstopping fall bouquet with sumptuous red dahlias and fresh apples. Poke awls or twigs into the apples and place them among the flowers.
Use red brads, photo corners, and stamped pages to make orchard-ready apple totes for guests to keep. You also could decorate the bags with greeting cards or photos.
