Welcome fall with a festive gathering inspired by the colors right outside your door.
Outdoor Ambiance: Whip up a set of soft chairback covers from old sweaters to bring an unexpected element to an otherwise plain set of chairs. At each place setting, put a berry box filled with treats and top each one with a die-cut leaf place card cut from chalkboard paper.
Fall Gathering Card: Give guests a sneak peek of the party theme with an invitation featuring tiny, colorful acorns. Creative use of a circle punch makes crafting each acorn easy.
Flower Power Table Runner: Chrysanthemums, the colorful mainstay of fall, grace the center of a burlap runner, in a fall-inspired ombre palette. Pieces of tissue paper punched into scalloped circles are layered and scrunched to shape each flower.
Word Message Cake Topper: Add a festive raffia- or yarn-wrapped wire word to the top of your next sweet treat.
Place Settings: Pick up a stack of berry boxes and turn them into place card treat holders for each of your guests. Use chalk to write each guest’s name onto a leaf die cut from chalkboard paper and secure it to the arrangement with a mini clothespin.
Go Nuts! Treat Favors: Want to send friends home with a little something special? Put colorful plastic Easter eggs to use by transforming them into fillable acorn favors with twine hot-glued to the widest end.
Acorn Garland: This fun take on a garland is made by simply tweaking purchased paper globes to resemble acorns. Trimmed and painted paper bowls are topped with painted wine corks to complete the caps.
