Let the festival begin!

Bring Your Own Pumpkin :)

Have your guest bring their own pumpkin for a Fall Festival carving contest! Ask them to pre-hollow their pumpkin before coming to the party :) Definitely less messy this way! Awards for the silliest, cutest, smallest, largest, etc. should be awarded! You supply art supplies such as markers, carving tools, yarn, glue, glitter, pompoms etc.

OR: You could have each guest decorate their own pumpkin prior to their arrival :)


Printable Pumpkin Carving Templates - from Parent's Magazine.

Pumpkin Carving 101 - for the NON experts ;)

*** Carve a cross in YOUR pumpkin and tell your guest that Jesus is the light of the world! ***

Fall Festival Idea! Have a "theme" costume party. For example: your guests could all come in 50's costumes or as famous Americans. (George Washington, Betsy Ross, statue of Liberty, Abe Lincoln :) - you get the idea! Be creative and put those neurons to work! A costume contest is definitely in order with awards for "Most Original," "Funniest," and of course "Best Costume!"

Fall Festival - Hidden Candies!

Before your guest arrive, hide candy all over your house. Be creative and hide candy in little pumpkins or candy bags. It's just like an Easter Egg Hunt so the quickest will surely also be the fullest! Be sure and have extra candy on hand for those who come up short ;)

Fall Festival Party Food

What party would be complete without munchies! You have 2 options for feeding your guest - you can either served them dinner with dessert or have them come later in the evening and serve finger foods :)

Fill a large bucket or tub with ice and stock with beverages. Steer clear from sodas and other high sugar/caffeine type drinks. Juices, water, gatorade etc. all make good choices :)

Punch Recipes




Caramel Apples

1 1/2 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
6 tbsp. water
Popsicle sticks
8 to 10 apples (McIntoshes work well)

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar and water. Stir until it has a smooth consistency. Gently bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 3 minutes, until the pan's sides get steamy and the mixture is thin but somewhat sticky. Remove from heat. Pierce the center of each apple with a Popsicle stick, then swirl in the caramel syrup until coated. Place apples on a greased cookie sheet to harden. Refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours. Serves 8 to 10.

Fall Festival Cookie Decorating

Tips for a Perfect Fall Festival from Southern Living Online

  • Choose a party theme. Plan your menu and make a checklist. Getting organized is the key to successful entertaining.
  • Etch or print handmade invitations on construction or handmade papers.
  • Light the inside of carved pumpkins and gourds with candles or use cordless battery-powered candles.
  • Embellish the driveway, sidewalk, windowsills, door knocker, lamppost, and front porch with odd-size pumpkins, vines, and green and white gourds.
  • Attach natural swags or vines to the chair backs with twine.
  • Arrange one or two large displays to greet guests as they arrive. Include fall produce, gourds, nuts, mums, and dried leaves around the base of the arrangement. Cast-iron kettles make creative pots for plants.
  • Transform a garage, loft, or recreation room into a barn setting.
  • Enjoy your company. When you relax your guests will have a good time too.

Fall Festival Party Activities

Open your party with pumpkin carving. Be sure and have a few pumpkins (already hollowed) on hand for guests who forget to bring their own. Have art supplies, carving templates, and carving supplies ready for this project. After your guests have finished decorating, place candles inside and present awards for the funniest, cutest, smallest, largest, etc.

After the carving, why not play a few silly games.

  • Pin the nose on the pumpkin :)

  • A Candy Hunt - (you hide the candy before the guests arrive)

  • Relay Races

  • Scavenger Hunt

Fall Festival Fun - By the time your guests have carved and played they are going to be very ready to EAT! Finish off the meal with a cookie decorating event. You supply each guest with a sugar cookie in the shape of a pumpkin. Have icing, sprinkles, candies etc. on hand for decorating.

If you live in a town that offers hayrides, this would be a great way to end the evening. Other fun party completers include providing each guest with a party favor bag. Fill with candies, wrapped carmel apple, little toys, etc.


Happy Thanksgiving!
