As we send the kiddos back to school and the calendar marks the last days of Summer, it’s easy to think party time is over, but that’s just not the case! There is still so much time and so many reasons to celebrate!! Let the change of seasons inspire you and Fall into Fun!!
Summer can be so jam-packed with activities that a relaxing September backyard BBQ can be just what the doctor ordered. Gather some friends for a casual afternoon of lawn games and food. Think portable putting green or jumbo “Jenga”, cornhole or horseshoes. Take a load off, reconnect and just enjoy one another’s company.
There’s nothing quite like the flavours of Fall, so when it comes to planning the food, let the weather be your guide. September tends to still be sunny and warm during the day, so consider how you can turn local seasonal vegetables and meats, for instance, into a delicious grilled up meal. Check out this great article packed full of inspiration for a “laid back Autumn BBQ”. Incorporating hints of the ever-loved “pumpkin spice” into your dessert while not going full comfort food mode is a great way to ease into Fall. Of course, it’s apple season and who doesn’t love a traditional apple pie or apple crisp. Yum!!
As the sun sets, cooler temps can certainly creep in this time of year, so if your gathering stretches into the night, be sure to plan ahead. Fall bonfires can’t be beat, but if that’s not an option for you or you want some additional warmth, consider renting a portable heater to have on hand just in case. No need to cut the party short!
Let the transition to Fall take the lead as you extend outdoor party season. Fall into the fun that comes along with this beautiful time of year. Kick back, relax and make the most of this time with your friends & family!
