Oh boy! We are coming upon my absolute favorite season of the entire year! I love autumn so so so much, and I truly look forward to this season all year. As soon as it passes, I am already looking to the next fall season! What is not to love? The weather is absolutely perfect, the scent of pumpkin spice and apples everywhere, and all the lovely decorations. Call me crazy, but even more so than pumpkin spice and harvest apple candles, there is a truly distinct fall smell that descends upon the world that is so lovely. To me, this is the perfect time for love. Forget Valentine’s Day, I want to see love stories in the fall! That’s why today we will be talking about the perfect engagement party for the fall!
(Hence the name, Let’s Fall in Love.)
Anyhow, it would be truly adorable to throw an engagement party in September-October or early November. I have already provided three possibly color palettes that really accentuate the fall aspect without going into the Halloween or even Thanksgiving regions. The last thing we want is for someone to think you’re throwing a Halloween party instead of an engagement party (unless you want that of course!).
I envision a lovely little outdoor dinner setting either at a pumpkin patch, apple orchard, or even your own backyard. These are natural elements that I feel are essential to a really fall inspired event that is also classy.
The table below, truly epitomizes the autumn-realness I want to achieve at this engagement party. The incorporate of green leaves, branches with berries, and fall flowers is immaculate! The simply dining placement with large candle sticks also adds an element of refinement as well as adds dynamic levels to the very horizontal dining space.

Continuing on the rustic-yet-refinedfall feeling, this cake would be perfect for your engagement party. It mimics that of a small wedding cake that blends beautifully with the table. Call Creative Kitchen right here in Fort Smith to get your engagement cake today! Show them this photo, and they will do you one better!
Lastly, I love the idea of also including a warm beverage cart at your party as well. People go insane for a good cup of cider or hot cocoa in the colder months! It would be a fun addition to an alcohol cart so that everyone can get that fall feeling and even the kiddos that come can be involved as well.
Even though I am nowhere near getting married, I definitely will be keeping these ideas in the back of my mind! I would love to have an engagement party or wedding in the fall for the weather alone! However, I also have just FALLen in love with all the colors and beautiful natural elements to miss this opportunity.
