1. Venue Capitalize on the crisp autumn air with an outdoor gathering. A backyard or nearby barn set the backdrop for a festive but low key evening. View More: http://tashabradyphotography.pass.us/twinkle_twinkle_little_party_fall

2. Menu Host a candy potluck. Instead of going door to door for candy, invite guests to contribute to a sweet treats buffet. Here a pumpkin bundt cake iced with maple buttercream frosting makes a scrumptious focal point. The rest of the desserts – donuts, apple mini pies and caramel apples – play sweet supporting roles.

3. Favors Mindy cleverly personalized take-out boxes then displayed them as place cards. Show guests to their seats while ensuring they don’t leave you to polish off all of the goodies alone.

4. Decor Play up the barn house aesthetic with old furniture and a vintage hutch for displaying desserts. Decorate the table with books, mismatched china and candles. Bring out a projector and allow your guests to watch spooky films as the sun sets. View More: http://tashabradyphotography.pass.us/twinkle_twinkle_little_party_fall
