Pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, and Halloween are all associated with the fall season. Another great thing about fall is that it’s the perfect time to throw a themed party or get together with loved ones. If your loved one’s birthday is around the fall season, there are some fall birthday party ideas available for them. A fall birthday party is the perfect opportunity for fall gift ideas and an unforgettable party. Here are some great inexpensive fall birthday ideas!
1. Pumpkin Patch Party
Pumpkin patches are great fun or for kids of all ages. There are so many things to do from picking pumpkins to carve, running around a corn maze and hay shooting. Invite some friends and you can buy treats at the pumpkin patch or bring your own birthday cake to celebrate.
If you can’t bring the party to the pumpkin patch, you can have the party in your backyard and have guests bring their own pumpkins so you can carve and decorate them together. Set up some games and decorate with fall colors to get into the pumpkin patch spirit!
2. Wine tasting
If you’re looking for something for adults, wine tasting is the perfect idea. If you live near wineries, organize a gathering of friends and family to visit a vineyard or host a wine tasting party at your home. Make it a good fortune by encouraging attendees to bring their own ham platters or favorite fall foods.
If you talk to the winery, you may be able to organize a fun scavenger hunt. As a prize, the guest who locates the most objects the fastest can be awarded a unique bottle of wine from your location. Adding a personalized wine box to the gift package would be a perfect gift to accompany a wine tasting birthday party. And don’t forget to hire a party bus or have designated drivers to keep everyone safe!
3. Oktoberfest theme
While traveling to Germany may not be financially feasible for everyone, you can still bring Germany to you for your birthday! Throw an Oktoberfest birthday theme at your house, or you can choose a German restaurant and have an endless supply of beer all night long. If you’re hosting the gathering at home, buy beer, chips, and baked pretzels for a fun party.
4. Outdoor movie night
Plan an outdoor movie night birthday party with your favorite movie or TV show. Party planners can use a movie night birthday party to host a child’s, teen’s, or adult’s birthday party depending on the movie you choose.
A white sheet can be used to make a DIY screen by hanging it from a fence or attaching it to a wall. Acorns, pumpkins, leaf wreaths and live lanterns are ideal decorations to add some life to the party. Don’t forget to set up comfy chairs and bring out blankets to keep everyone warm while watching.
The final touch is the snacks! Bring the movie theater experience to your backyard with candy and popcorn. Pumpkin Spice Popcorn Spice can take your party fare to the next level. Additionally, you can create an apple cider bar where guests can prepare their own hot drinks, including all the garnishes, such as whipped cream, cinnamon sticks and caramel sauce.
5. Harry Potter Party
A Harry Potter theme is great all year round, but October is the perfect opportunity. Burgundy and gold, the colors of Gryffindor, work well with fall themes and can be used to create an unforgettable birthday party for a child or adult. Old magic books and vintage bottles are some suggested decorations, along with red apples, pine cones and owls. Don’t forget the butter! You can find recipes online to whip up some butter so you and your guests really feel like you’re at Hogwarts.
6. Halloween themed party
A Halloween themed party is fun for all ages if a birthday is somewhere around the party. Try scary skeletons, spiders and artificial webs to create a spooky atmosphere. Ask everyone to wear a scary, funny or inventive costume. Halloween staples like candy corn, gooey skulls, and marshmallow ghosts make great party foods. To serve delicious desserts, you can also use serving dishes, such as bowls in the shape of skeleton hands or dark kettles.
7. Party of fire
Who said that lighting a fire should only be done in the summer? Cold autumn nights can be cured with a big fire and some warm drinks. Place a hot chocolate bar by the fire and add marshmallows, caramel sauce, peanut butter sauce, and anything else you think sounds delicious to a cup of hot chocolate.
If you can’t have a real fire, a portable oven will do. Prepare camping chairs, firewood and flashlights for a great evening in the great outdoors! Do cool things and tell exciting stories.
8. Paint Party
Plan an inking birthday party for your teen to inspire them to explore their inner artist. Workshops are offered at art studios, or you can host a party for teens at your home and hire painting instructors. Additionally, you can host a DIY paint party by gathering all the necessary materials and setting them up in your garage, backyard, or somewhere that offers easy cleanup.
Birthday guests can create their own works of art, generating hours of fun. Serve up finger foods and snacks that you can grab quickly when you need a break, and decorate with paint brushes, painter’s aprons, and more.
9. Karaoke Party
All ages enjoy singing their favorite songs! Your teens will enjoy dancing and singing along to the songs on their playlists, whether you have a karaoke machine in your home or rent a place at a karaoke bar. If you are hosting the party at home, you can create a mock scene with flashing lights and curtains. Decorate the party using a musical theme and include fun activities where children try to finish the lyrics or identify the artist.
10. Glow-in-the-Dark Party
Buy glow sticks and black lights at your local party store to turn a black room into the coolest party spot. With your invitation, ask your friends to wear white or neon colors that will show up against the black light. A personalized holiday neon sign is a great touch to hang on the wall and can also be used as a photo prop. Keep the sign after the party is over and print the photos you took to give as photo gifts to everyone who attended.
Time to party
When it’s time to start planning those fall birthday parties, it can be difficult to choose a theme, activities, food, decorations and all the other elements. But with a little creativity, planning and customization for that special birthday person, the party will be one for the books.
