Planning an Autumn Event

The History of Candy Corn

Give your party that seasonal touch with our collection of autumn candies!

Labor Day has come and gone, which means pack away those white denim pants and bring out the striped Breton sweaters! Our Halloween products are currently available on our website and select locations, so if you’re in the mood for that candy corn classic taste, you can order them today. Whether you’ve planned a wedding, party, or corporate event this upcoming fall, take the necessary planning precautions, with a few added fall additions for that seasonal touch.

Planning Your Space

Start by putting together a guest list, and gauge how many people you think will be in attendance. This will give you an idea of how big of a space you’ll need. Take a closer look at whom you’ve invited. Does anyone have a food allergy? Can Grandma not stand for too long? Take these small factors into consideration when choosing a venue or decorating the space. If you’re planning your party at your home, prepare for adequate parking. Get permission from a nearby school or country club for guests to leave their cars to avoid any possible ticketing!

Decorate and Create Social Zones

Set the scene for fall with seasonal decorations. Take advantage of the rich colors of autumn by incorporating a relevant color scheme. Elegant banners, garlands, and fall centerpieces are a great way for your guests to get into the spirit of the season. No matter the size of your party, you don’t want your guests standing in one large clump of uncomfortable bodies. Use seating, food and drink zones, and entertainment sections such as a photo booth to maintain your party in an even way.

Plan for Entertainment

Whether it’s a 3-piece string band or your niece singing a karaoke version of a Lady Gaga song, make sure your party has some form of entertainment. If there are children attending the party, find something for them to do. An autumn or Halloween related craft table is sure to keep the kids happy.

Plan For Food

Good food is a staple of every party. A well-fed guest is a happy guest. Whether your party is going to be a buffet style or plated service, ensure that the food you provide is delicious and considerate of your guest’s needs. Put a bowl of our jelly pumpkins or harvest mix on the table for that sweet, autumn treat!
