We know everyone can’t wait for the much-loved fall season. So why not throw an Autumn Harvest Party! It’s such a delightful theme for a little one marking a birthday in the autumn months, when nature provides gorgeous inspiration for decorations to treats to favors. See how our party ideas below play up pumpkins, scarecrows, bushel baskets, and more—all dressed up in the lush colors of fall!
Fall Harvest Party Ideas: Decorations to Treats
Welcome display – Extend a warm welcome to party guests with a little “harvest” vignette (1). Assemble pumpkins, gourds, and autumn leaves spilling out of a bushel basket with a jaunty scarecrow waving hello (image via Ganz World).
Invitations – Of course, this ties in perfectly with the party invitations (2) you would have sent ahead. How adorable is this handmade design from Too Cute Invites on etsy—with 3D cutouts and glitter!
Sweet treats – Get the party goodies in on the theme, too. Just look at these amazing fondant toppers by Lynlee’s Petite Cakes paired with labels from the darling “Little Pumpkin” printable collection (3) of Frog Prince Paperie (this links to an entire party you’ll love)! While you can make these pumpkin scarecrow pops (4) using store-bought items “dressed up” as described on Party Pinching.
Party games – Think of fun activities using fall elements. Lawn bowling using gourds as “pins” and mini pumpkins as balls? Bobbing for apples? Or this clever “Pumpkin Swish” game (6) we found via Sophie World—like harvest basketball!
Favor bags – Tuck all the goodies and party favors into scarecrow paper bags (3), like this ingenious DIY project by Lauren M/Split Coast Stampers (tutorial provided). You could even spin this off into a decorate-your-own-scarecrow-bag party activity—then fill it with take-home treats!
Here’s wishing your birthday boy or girl a fun and fabulous Fall Harvest Party!
