Fall Picnic Party Ideas for the Whole Family

As the cooler weather approaches, it is time to shift out of pool party season and take advantage of the time left outdoors. Fall is the best time of the year to host a family party. Read on for some ideas on how you can make an afternoon and evening full of fun:

Apple picking time. If you live near an area where they grow apples, then spend an afternoon with family and friends picking apples. When you return home, you can enjoy an apple-inspired cookout. BBQ catering in Akron recommends offering pork wrapped with apple smoked bacon, roasted potatoes and a harvest corn salad.

Tailgate for your favorite team. Fall is all about football and is a great time to spend with friends. Cleveland caterers suggest hosting a tailgate party right at your home, just as your favorite football team is taking the field. You can serve hamburgers, ribs and roasted sausages.

Take a nature walk. With the beautiful fall leaf color, now is the time to plan for a nature hike with your family. To make this an even more memorable afternoon, you can arrange for caterers in Akron, Ohio to make gourmet box lunches to eat before you hike. Filled with hearty sandwiches, apple-walnut salads and homemade cookies, your guests will be sure to have the energy they need to enjoy the afternoon walking in nature.

Pumpkin carving party. Before you know it, the kids will be getting all dressed up in their Halloween costumes. Why not host a pumpkin carving party the weekend before Trick-or-Treat? Have your guests bring their pumpkins and spend some time carving as a group. You can even hand out creative prizes for the best pumpkin carved that evening. After your group has worked up an appetite carving their designs, then treat them to beef stew and apple crisp served around a bonfire.

First snow party. Many times, the first snow arrives early in the season. This is a great opportunity to like a fire in your fire pit and enjoy being outside. Invite your friends and family over to drink cocoa and toast marshmallows. Your Cleveland caterers can recommend a light meal to serve to your guests to keep them warm as they enjoy visiting with each other.

Fall is the best time of the year to gather with family and friends to enjoy the weather. With these ideas and help from Special Moments Catering, you can create a family fun event that you’ll always remember. Call us today!
