Planning The Perfect Outdoor Fall Party

The beautiful colors of fall are the perfect setting for one last outdoor party. With the temperatures beginning to cool, try to get in one last celebration of the season.

During nice weather, parties tend to move from the living room to the backyard. Good backyard party ideas and outdoor entertaining help can make your parties stand out from the rest.

Probably one of the first bits of advice should be about your, the host’s, time. With every backyard party, keep your individual tasks as simple as possible.

At the head of the list of all backyard party ideas is this: you never want to ever have to “disappear” from the party at any time because you are off somewhere working away at something for long periods of time. Be available for as much of the party as possible.

Your guests want to see you and visit with you. You will want to throw outdoor parties more often if you are able to enjoy them yourself.

If your backyard party will not be under a covered deck or patio, one of the ideas is to consider renting or buying a party tent. Nothing will ruin it faster than rain.

With all the time, work, and money you will put into this, you don’t want that relatively small expense to end your party miserably because of a rain shower. So if you don’t have a deck or patio cover, make sure to put a tent on your list.

Decorating for your backyard celebration can be as simple or as elaborate as you would like it. It can be decorating to a theme, if you are using one, or just be some of the same decorations you would use in an indoor event.

Just make sure you decorate with things that can be taped or fastened down if it’s windy that day. Chasing after decorations is not much fun at all.

If your event will take place at night, be sure and make sure you have plenty of lighting. You don’t want you and your guests feeling around in the dark for their food or drinks.

If you are not willing to purchase all the outdoor light fixtures you will need, then your local rental center can provide you with your outdoor lighting. They’ll also give out pretty good lighting advice for your particular lighting needs.

Here’s another of the “weather-related” backyard ideas that could save your party. If it gets a little cool at night, think about purchasing an outdoor fireplace and center it where most of the guests can use it should they get cold.

Many outdoor fireplaces double as grills, so you can have little snacks or food items available that can be grilled quickly and served. Pieces of foccacia bread with cheese make great little grilled snack items.

If you are serving barbeque, which takes a long time to cook, have it ready or almost ready before the party has even started. Or, try preparing grilled foods that are quick, like steaks or hamburgers.

Better yet, set up a buffet table, where guests pick out different items they want. Maybe put out finger foods to snack on to start with, or maybe some type of a theme like Mexican food items.

You could serve quesadillas and have the items for tacos and guests could build them themselves. Just have a way to keep everything covered to keep out flies or bugs.

Speaking of bugs, if you live in an area with lots of mosquitoes, then make sure you have as much protection for you and your guests as possible. Put out citronella candles or tiki torches, bug zappers, and anything else that will fight them off as best as possible.

Also, another one of the better backyard party ideas for mosquito control is to have cans of mosquito repellent on every table or at least available for you and guests. If you were going to rent that tent, they make them with mosquito netting already built in to take care of all the issues.

No matter how you choose to do things, now is the perfect time to get that last even in. Enjoy the beautiful colors and the crisp air with your friends and loved ones one last time this season! BOLA TANGKAS
