Everyone loves apple pie, so why not give each guest their own? Our pie pops are as delicious as they are cute, especially in fall-perfect maple leaf shapes.
Complete with a sweet apple jam, salty feta, and crispy bacon, these crispy crostinis are prime party-starters.
Juicy fried pork gets a fall-inspired twist with the help of tarragon-tossed apple slaw. These crispy, fried sandwiches make the perfect main dish for your orchard party.
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.
Set a table with a mix of hard ciders and a tray of glasses so guests can help themselves. For the kids, we recommend warm apple cider and lemonade.
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.
Weigh down your tablecloth with sweet and easy apple decorations. Cut two pieces of twine, each about 20 inches longer than the sides of your table. Pierce through each apple with an awl, and tie them on the ends of the twine. The extra length allows the apples to hang over the table's edges.
DIY utensil jars make your party that much easier to organize, and trust us, they’re so easy. Attach circles of cork to glasses with double-stick tape. Then pin a printed or drawn label to the cork to indicate what flatware goes where.
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.
