Bringing Together the Theme
The easiest way to bring the color and feel of fall to your party space? Mums, hay bales, and a basket of mini pumpkins! Placed near the entry way to the party (inside or out) or used to set up a unique gift table area, these three elements spell instant autumn. Bonus: at this time of year, they are also very easy to come by, no matter where you live.
Colorful Table Decor
For the buffet table or individual dining tables, make simple centerpieces that combine all the brilliant hues of the season. Collect glass jars of varying sizes and fill with an assortment of sunflowers, zinnias, dahlias, daisies mums, and other autumn favorites. For an added pop, place the jars in groups atop an equally colorful tablecloth.

Serving cupcakes? Give plain white cakes a festive fall makeover by topping with leaves and acorns made from fondant icing, like these from SugarandStripesCo.

Dress up your party favors with a fall gift tag to remember the day, like this one from Persnickitude. These kinds of small paper treasures are also fun for scrapbooking and baby books!
Pumpkins stacked on hay bales add that classic fall touch. For added focus and an eye-catching pop, think about using a less common variety of pumpkin, such as these “Cinderella” pumpkins.

Party Favors Station
Wouldn’t this sign look propped on an easel? Also, take note of the burlap table runner. Burlap adds another dash of seasonal flair and can serve as a contrast and anchor to brighter autumn shades.
Candied Apple Buffet
For a decadent desert buffet, tantalize your guests with the autumn treat of caramel apples, like these from KapowChow. I love this party-perfect assortment of caramel and chocolate-coated apples that come all dressed up with sprinkles, drizzles, and other yummies.
