Thinking about inviting your family and friends over to enjoy a Fall barbecue? It’s the perfect time of year to entertain your loved ones in the cool crisp air. The food is certainly the main focus but there are other factors of your surrounding environment to complete the gathering!
Include Festive Decor
Pumpkins, plaid, and plenty of orange and maroon hues can help provide a festive atmosphere for your guests this Fall. Colorful leaves and branches in vases, wood cutting boards and wildflowers provide the Autumn feel. For the finishing touch, set out a basket of blankets for your guests to cozy up when the sun has set and the wind picks up.
Lighting to Set the Mood
It’s no secret that daylight savings time calls for a time change in the Fall. This comes with darkness creeping in much earlier. Unless, you have outdoor lighting in place in your entertainment space. A few lights can go a long way! Some areas to focus on would be any winding paths on your property, your grilling space, and any pergolas or decks in your backyard.
Perfect Music Playlist
Have you lined up your best songs for a playlist to enjoy the Autumn evening? Perfect! But how will your guests hear this? Consider adding an outdoor audio system to your entertaining space so that guests can enjoy the music as they move between the deck and the grill. Don’t worry! There are a variety of options for landscape speakers that are hidden into your landscape and won’t interfere with your space.
Don’t forget the entertainment! Pull out the corn hole boards if you have a competitive streak among your crowd. Painting pumpkins or turning on the big football game are other crowd pleasers to consider for entertainment for your fall gathering.
