As autumn paints the world in hues of gold and red, there’s no better time to host a family-friendly backyard party. The crisp air, falling leaves, and cozy atmosphere create the perfect backdrop for creating unforgettable memories with your loved ones. Allow us to inspire you with ideas that will make your gathering a seasonal sensation!

Rustic Harvest Table

Any good fall party features a long rustic table for family and friends to gather. Don’t overthink it! A board and a couple of sawhorses will do the trick. Cover it with burlap and decorate with leaves, mason jars and battery-operated twinkle lights and you’re well on your way. PS: The more mismatched the chairs, the better. Just add some pillows and blankets here and there to set a cozy and inviting mood.

Bistro Lights

Is there any time that doesn’t lend itself to cafe string lights? We think not. However, fall with its early twilight and soft hues will get an extra dose of magic with a couple lines of bistro lights hung above your table. Another option: Paper lanterns or hand-made tin can lanterns can provide a family craft activity and add a personal touch.

Pumpkin Patch Vibes

Set the mood by creating your own pumpkin patch (doubles as photo booth) at the entrance to your backyard. This doesn’t have to be expensive! A bale of hay, some pumpkins, stalks of corn and mums, and you have the most inviting entrance to your party.

Blankets and Pillows

More is more here. Set out cozy blankets and pillows galore for guests to stay warm as temperatures drop.

Prepare Activities and Games

What’s a fall party without a pumpkin decoration station? If you don’t want the mess of pumpkin carving, decorate with paints, markers and craft supplies. And maybe this is the one time of the year to use some glitter? It’ll be outside after all. 😉

Not into pumpkin crafts? Use leaves. Leaf rubbings are a classic, and leaf collages on canvas make for fantastic seasonal art pieces.

Pinecone birdfeeders. Ok, they are a little messy to make. But remember it’s outside, and you’ll make the birds happy 🙂

Sack races are hilarious. Seriously, when was the last time you participated in a sack race? Exactly. It takes us straight back to the good old days.

Pumpkin bowling or pumpkin bocce will provide hours of autumn-themed entertainment… Promise!

Bobbing for apples is messy, yes – but it is SO. MUCH. FUN. Refreshing, too. Who dares to dunk first? Also remember an apple a day keeps the doctor away, so there are real health benefits to playing this game.

Minute-to-Win-It Autumn Style! Work in teams or compete individually, but don’t forget to set out prices!!

  • Candy corn relay races are a fun activity if you’re looking for some friendly family competition.

  • Leaf blower: How many dry leaves can your team down a table – with a straw? (This activity is right up DAPrDAN’s ally!!)

  • Candy Pumpkin Toss. How many can your team accurately toss into a cup?

  • Buckets of Acorns: How many acorns can you squirrel from one basket into another using only tweezers? (Make it harder by forcing competitors to wear oven mitts)

  • Chop Chop Candy Corn: Same concept as your acorns – but transport your kernels from one plate to the other using chop sticks

Seasonal Specialties

Nothing says “fall” like a cast-iron dutch oven full of chili on a tripod over a campfire. Have someone watch the meal so it doesn’t burn while you play.

Alternatively, bring in your trusty crock pot for a soup bar potluck, and recruit your baking friend to bring a loaf of homemade sourdough. Yum!

You might, however, need your crock pot for Caramel Apples… and there is no shame in that. After all, an apple a day…

End the day with smores and (spooky?) stories by the bonfire.

Whatever you do, you’ll be sure to create warm and fond memories for years to come. Enjoy!
