Festive Fall Themes That Spice Up An Event

Festive Fall Themes That Spice Up An Event | Viper Alley

If you’re throwing a fall event this season, it’s time to break out those leaf décors and pumpkin spiced desserts. Besides, the colors for fall are beautiful, with a variety of yellows, reds, oranges, and browns to really set the atmosphere for an event.

What’s more, there are a few holidays to celebrate during fall, kicking things up for the next few months of celebrations to follow. (Here are some themes to take your holiday party to the next level.) So, if you’re planning a gathering this fall, get creative and take advantage of all the season has to offer. Here are 3 festive fall themes that can really heighten your party experience.


If you’re looking for a way to scare the pants off your friends, planning a Halloween party is the way to go. Not only is it easy to go all out with decorations, like hanging spiders, mummy dolls, or maybe even a haunted house—but it’s also fun to dress up in different costumes and step outside reality.

And, you can even create fun Halloween appetizers, desserts, and cocktails. (Like a candy corn martini.)

Plus, if you’re in a rush or the idea just came to you, here are a few tips for planning a last minute event.

A Day at the Orchard

Here’s how to take apple and pumpkin picking indoors. Simply set up a few pumpkins and apples abound for decoration, and you can incorporate them into the cuisine, too.

For instance, you can try apple tarts, cider donuts or pumpkin pie for dessert. And, take it a step further for hands-on experience and set up a cooking class for the event, where guests can get their hands dirty and make their own individual apple tarts and mulled cider.


You probably have plans with family for Thanksgiving, but why not kick off that holiday feeling by hosting a “Friendsgiving,” where your close friends can come together and enjoy not only each other’s company, but some fabulous, comfort food.

Or, you can also do this as a corporate event, where you’re simply creating a way for employees to bond, relax and be grateful for one another. This can be done as a potluck at the office or outside the office where a feast or buffet is laid out with big community tables for everyone to gather around. (And, here are a few ways to incorporate team building practices.)

And, another way to celebrate Friendsgiving while giving back to a powerful cause is by hosting a charity event during the fall. For instance, in light of Thanksgiving, the charity “No Kid Goes Hungry” has a charity event “Friendsgiving” where family and friends can come together and express gratitude by giving back to the community. (And making sure all people have something to feast on during the holidays.)
