The Perfect Fall Gathering

This fall create your own getaway in your very own backyard. Fall is the best time to relax outdoors and in the comfort of your own yard. Although the trees in Florida don’t put on the extravagant show like the trees up north, the mild temperatures make up for it. Having friends and family over on your patio enclosure is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the crisp fall air. Decorate your patio or any outdoor space for fall with a hint of pumpkin spice warm fall colors.

Here are some tips for having the perfect fall gathering:


Place scented pinecones in a bowl for décor and to add some spice to the air. Carve out a pumpkin and place flowers inside to add extra decoration outside. Mix cheerful yellow and orange flowers and pumpkins all around your patio to bring in a warm and cozy feel for your guests. You can also create a fall window box outside of your kitchen window. Add mums, pumpkins, lavender and some ivy. If you open up your window when you’re inside the kitchen you will have a nice view and when the breeze blows by your kitchen will be filled with the calming lavender scent.


If there is a chill in the air and you don’t have any scented fall candles in the house don’t worry. You can boil some water and add nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, cloves, vanilla extract and either some apple slices or orange peels. This is a wonderful trick to make your home and patio smell like fall. Enjoy the aroma as often as you wish.


When your guests arrive, if you have an outdoor kitchen you can fire up the grill and roast chicken kabobs with some seasonal vegetables. If you have a countertop you can use this for food preparation outside or you can use a table. Use what is convenient and don’t worry about having the perfect foundation. Your guests will remember the delicious food, pleasant atmosphere, and good company more than anything.


Before you invite your guests over to enjoy the nice fall weather make sure to put away any summer chairs or toys. Walk around the yard to see if anything needs to be fixed that could have broken over the summertime.
