It’s always a great idea to get friends together before the schedule fills up with the holiday bustle. Before you get busier with Thanksgiving preparations, enjoy a simple fall dinner party with your friends for some quality time together. From using beautiful acorn wreaths to making a delicious pumpkin cheesecake, here are some simple ideas for hosting a night of good food and great company.
 
Employ Understated and Heartwarming Décor
 
For a casual fall dinner party, simple and sincere does the trick. Acorn and pumpkins are staples when it comes to fall decorating and give your home a beautiful, natural touch. These natural embellishments can be placed almost anywhere and can be used in small or large quantities without overwhelming your existing décor.

The challenge of Halloween decorating is finding new and exciting accessories to display that will make the holiday more fun. This year, stand out from the crowd with creative and tasteful Halloween decorating ideas that bring a playful touch to your décor.
 
Monogrammed Pumpkins
 

 
They look fancy, but are oh-so appropriate for Halloween. The black letters against white pumpkins suit the theme of the season, but doesn’t look too spooky. These are perfect for the porch or along your driveway as a greeting to trick-or-treating kids. To make this, just print out some letters (make sure they fit your pumpkins) and then cut out the inside of the letters using an X-acto knife. Afterwards, use painter’s tape to stick the paper flat against the pumpkin before spray painting. Let it dry before displaying.
