- Fall Harvest: Plan a fall harvest party for any age group. Visit Punchbowl to select a fall invitation with symbols of autumn, such as colorful leaves and acorns, pumpkins or apples. Plan craft projects for the fall harvest party and bake apple pies, create autumn leaf garlands, or make fall jewelry. Arrange activities which include fall harvest bingo, bobbing for apples, or even an cranberry picking extravaganza. Serve fall classics such as apple cider, roasted pumpkin seeds, and cider donuts.
- Football Party: Throw a football party for family, friends and football fans. Select a football themed invitation to send to your guests. Decorate the party with your team’s colors, mascot and football-inspired decorations. Serve food such as wings, chips and dip, pizza and deviled eggs. Entertain guests throughout the party and challenge them to throw a football through a hula hoop. Award prizes to the winners.
- Back to School: Get the kids together and celebrate the start of a new school year with a back to school fall theme party. Plan a back to school party to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Decorate the party room with apples, books, chalkboards, globes and maps. Plan activities for the party such as a school craft idea. Purchase inexpensive lunch bags or pencil cases and have the kids decorate them with puffy paints. At the end of the party, treat the kids to delicious back to school cupcakes. Frost the cupcakes with yellow frosting and use icing decorate them with red and green apples, pieces of white chalk, and mini-chalkboards. To make the chalkboards, cut pieces of chocolate and write 1+1=2 on them in white frosting.
- Oktoberfest: Plan a traditional German Oktoberfest party for late September or early October. For this party, you’ll need plenty of beer, sausages, bratwurst, and knackwurst. Serve side dishes such as German potato salad and red cabbage with apples, bacon and sauerkraut. Display the traditional blue and white diamond pattern on cups, plates and napkins. Hire a live Oompah band to play Oktoberfest music throughout the party. To add to the fun, dress the men in lederhosen and the woman in dirndls. Prepare yourself for a fun and rowdy time!
