3 Tips When Throwing an Outdoor Party



Throwing a party is easy when you can expect warm weather, clear skies, and sun-drenched days. However, hosting a party becomes a bit more difficult when you throw in the unpredictability that comes with the fall months; fluctuating temperatures, rain, cloud-covered skies and invasive wind can really ruin a party. Consider these top 3 fall tips when throwing an outdoor party in the fall so all that hard work doesn’t go to waste in a split second.

Plan the Menu
Cold fall days are expected, so keep your guest’s bones warm with hearty warm soups and stews, and fall-inspired hot drinks fit for both adults and children. Our fall favorite is Jacques Pépin’s quintessential Beef Stew in Red Wine Sauce, which is packed with chunks of flat iron steak and a melody of fall flavors such as mushrooms, carrots, bay leaves, thyme and dry red wine. Pair this meal with a layered polenta dish that will knock the fluffy socks off your guests. Don’t forget to bring the entire meal together with a traditional Apple Cider Hot Toddy that’ll really warm the soul.

Plan the Environment
Fall weather is unpredictable. Warm days, cold nights. Sporadic rain showers or a complete wash-out. Prepare for the day under your patio cover with a propane fire column or a wood-burning fire pit. If all else fails, provide your guests with their own personal blanket for the evening.  Don’t forget the bugs. While Fall is upon us, insects still haven’t called it quits for the year. Light citronella candles within hallowed pumpkins to keep with your fall theme while still maintaining a bug-free zone! Having a party go into the night. Be sure to light up your space accordingly so the party doesn’t end when the sun goes down (which tends to be earlier in the fall months).



Plan for a Backup Plan
When all else fails and it may be time to move the party indoors, always have a backup plan. If you must move your party indoors, make sure you have enough room to accommodate all your guests. If you are utilizing your patio cover, block rain utilizing outdoor curtains that are mildew and UV resistant. Make the change in location easy for yourself by utilizing outdoor friendly party décor like Pumpkins, Gourds, and decorative leaves and greenery, so if you must move indoors, you won’t have to worry about leaving your tablescape and party décor in the rain.
