The end of summer is closing in and this means the approach of cooler temperatures, autumn colors, outdoor grilling time, and the perfect season for poolside entertaining. There is no better time to clean up your yard and get prepared to host friends and family for a causal gathering or a formal affair.
Here are several ideas to help you plan a memorable fall party in your outdoor, poolside oasis:
Costume Soiree for Halloween
Get into the fall spirit by hosting a themed Halloween bash. Invite your neighbors and friends to dress in their favorite costume and attend your backyard party. Decorate your yard with gourds and pumpkins and plan a themed menu for real pizzazz.
Tuxedo Penguin Party
Have you ever heard that penguins look like they are wearing tiny tuxedos? Host your own black and white party by inviting all of your guests to wear a combination of these two colors so everyone in your pool looks like a penguin! Make it a family friendly affair and stock up on cheesy goldfish crackers for a real treat for the kids!
Cheeseburgers in Paradise
Not a Jimmy Buffet fan? That doesn’t matter. Most people enjoy a good cheeseburger. Host an “end of the warm weather” party by inviting everyone to wear tropical shirts, make leis, and have a cook-off contest to find out who makes the best cheeseburger.
Wine, Dine, and Tapas
Invite a few friends over and ask them to bring a bottle of their favorite wine and a small plate of food. Set up by your pool to enjoy the crisp weather, a nice glass of wine, and of course good conversation.
Smores Contest Night
At the first hint of chilly weather, gather a crowd to host a smores night. Ask your guests to think outside the box and bring unconventional ingredients to be incorporated into a tasty treat. There’s nothing better than sitting around a fire by the pool eating something delicious.
Enjoy the last of the summer season’s weather but don’t dismay, fall is the perfect season for entertaining and with the above list it sounds like you have several events to plan!
