Fall Trends- Plaid and Deer

Fall calls for fun times with friends. A chance to get together before all the holiday busyness begins. The last few years I've had a pumpkin carving party. Not this year. I saw this invitation and a party idea formed. Who knew I would be so on trend. I had my party the first weekend of October and now BAM!  I'm seeing plaid and deer everywhere. 

Guests were greeted at  the door by an easy diy sign.  Small Moments  created the graphic. I took an artists canvas, wrapped it in faux bois contact paper, attached the graphic and added a feather. 

A splash of colour at the front door from the fall mums, buffalo check fabric and antlers on the pumpkin hinted of the party theme inside.  If you're on Instagram check out the hashtag for more photo's of the party. 
Hay bail from Michael's. Faux pumpkin glittered up with an antler template I made.
When we bought our house I knew this red wall was perfect for parties. You would think a cream wall would be better but this red goes great for Valentine's, Cinco De Mayo, fall, Christmas...

Red being my fav colour I just love the look of this fall spread. It makes me think of a cozy cabin in the woods. 

Fancy & Fold 's cupcake toppers fit the theme perfectly and added that rustic touch to my mini pumpkin cakes. These cakes are great for breakfast too.  


Yep, the table linen isn't smooth for a reason. I wanted it to look like a picnic blanket tossed onto a lawn for a fall picnic. 
Antlers borrowed from Bella Grey Designs.
The little fox place card holder I picked up at Khol's a few years ago. I knew it would be perfect for a party someday. 
If you want mini donuts for your party,Green Mountain Mini Baked  is who you need to order from. I had a hard time not eating all of these before my guests arrived. They make great party favors too.

The show stopper. Caramel Apple Snickers Cake. I followed the recipe from Half Baked Harvest. Does it look as pretty as her's? No. But here's the thing. My guests didn't care, they didn't know what it was suppose to look like and it tasted amazing! 

It's not a fall party without apple cider. 

After loading up on tasty treats my friends and I retired to the living room to catch up on everyone's summer activities and fall plans. I kept the comfy cabin feeling going with natural elements, buffalo check, candles and a great banner by Fancy & Fold


I can't help myself with the details. Sure the label on the wine bottle would have been fine. But look how great the label Small Moments created looks with everything. It blends seamlessly. 

Auntie Beas  acorn cookies mimic the acorns in the napkin rings and the glittered acorns from the table. Gratitude cards from Small Moments helped steer the conversation away from work.  Work dominates enough of our life and it's stressful enough. This party was all about fun and relaxation. No work stress allowed.  


Guests were sent home with homemade pumpkin scrubs.  They make your shower smell just like fall and your skin so soft. 

I hope you enjoyed this fall party. I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you use any of these ideas let me know.

    1. You were definitely missed at this party. This party would have been great at your house. Your property is perfect for it. I may need to tweak this party a little and do a shoot when I come visit.
