How to Host an Autumn Get-Together

Fall is my favorite season. Maybe it’s all the pumpkins and pumpkin spice, maybe it’s the gorgeous trees as they turn colors, or maybe it’s just the start of what I like to call the “cozy season.” Whatever it is, these last cool crisp autumn nights are the perfect time to host a get together with friends or family, before the hustle of the upcoming holiday season


This review is based strictly on my opinion. I was provided these samples free of charge by Oriental Trading to provide my honest review. I was also compensated to blog on the Oriental Trading Blog.   All ideas and opinion are my own.

When I was planning to style this party for Oriental Trading, I knew I wanted it to reflect a part of a small dream I have to host an outdoor Thanksgiving Dinner.  I live in the Pacific Northwest, so the reality of that happening is, let’s just say, preettttyy slim…can you say Thanksgiving in June??


I love all the natural elements in this table, from the tree slice cake stand and fresh mums, to the green back drop of the trees.  The cute DIY Autumn Leaves garland, was an easy way to add a little interest to the background.


Buuut honestly….the Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Whoopie Pies, were hands down the biggest hit!  You will not be disappointed with this recipe and neither will your guests!



I needed some napkin rings to tie in with my rustic decor, so these were a cheap and easy way to create just that!




You can find all the details, DIY’s and recipe on the Oriental Blog.  I hope you find some ideas to use in your own gathering this Fall with friends and family!
