5 Tips for Outdoor Fall Entertaining

Football, Halloween, back-to-school…there are an endless number of reasons to invite some friends over to celebrate this fall. If you’re gearing up to throw a shindig this fall, use our favorite five tips to get the party started!

Rake the leaves. The leaves have started changing colors and falling from the trees! If you have a large number of trees on your lawn, your property is probably covered in a layer of brown crunchy leaves. Fall cleanup services in Bucks County can prepare your backyard for entertaining.

Add some outdoor lighting. Have you noticed that the days have been getting progressively shorter since summer ended? In October, you can expect nightfall to hit around 6 pm. Lighting your backyard with a few strings of fairy lights or tiki torches is a fun and affordable way to keep the party going past sunset.

Warm up to winter cocktails. Embrace the cold weather with some warm drinks! Whip up some spiked apple cider, Irish coffees, and hot toddies (bourbon, lemon juice, and hot black tea) for a cozy-good time. For the kids, a steaming hot cup of hot cocoa loaded with marshmallows is a seasonal treat that everyone loves.

Opt for comfy seating. The chill of fall means that more of your guests will be sitting and trying to warm up during an outdoor gathering. Add cushions to patio furniture for more fun, warmth, and comfort, and make sure you have plenty of cozy blankets available on-hand for when cold weather strikes.

Consider installing a fire pit. Everyone loves roasting a warm s’more on a cool fall night! If you love to entertain, Anthony Landscapes can help you install a permanent hardscaping fire pit that’s perfect for fall and winter festivities.
