Celebrate the beginning of Fall by throwing a party filled with colorful foliage, pumpkins and outdoor activities! Whether you're hosting a party at home or in a classroom, here are autumn inspired ideas for invitations, decorations, food, favors and games!

Fall Party Planning & Invitations

In addition to basic Fall themed party supplies, like plates, cups, napkins, and decorations, you may want to consider purchasing, borrowing or renting the following items for your Fall party:

  • Pumpkins
  • Scarecrows
  • A cornucopia
  • Petting zoo animals or a pony
  • A nature trail or a safe place to hike
  • Bicycles, roller skates or scooters
Invitation Ideas: Guests love to receive creative invitations, if you have the time to make your own invitations, here are a few suggestions:
  • Purchase colorful paper cutouts of pumpkins or leaves and arrange them on a piece of cream-colored cardstock. Print the invitation details inside the leaves. Inside the largest leaf print "Up and Autumn!" and then print the date and time in other leaves. Make color copies onto card stock to create the number of invitations needed.
  • If you'd rather not make your own invitations, but still want a personalized touch, consider our Personalized Invitations, which can include all the party details for you.
