Autumn Harvest Party

Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Sara Schmutz of Confetti Sunshine


The mornings are crisp, and the pumpkins are ripe. Autumn is here and we could not be more excited about it! Now that summer is over, it is the perfect time to start planning your fall parties. Focus on the changing seasons and harvest of autumn for this party.

Set the stage for an Autumn Harvest celebration. These adorable teepees are just the right amount of decoration and a giant dose of fun. The children loved playing in them and eating their harvest snacks inside. To complete the look, we added a soft blanket inside, as well as a fun little bouquet of balloons we filled up using Balloon Time Helium Tanks. We also added wooden crates around the teepees, and filled those crates with gourds, pumpkins, and apple baskets full of apples.

While we love fall colors, we wanted to add a little pop of unexpected colors into our party. That is where some fun with the balloons came in! Balloons come in almost every color imaginable, so it is always our first stop when coming up with a color palette for our parties. We gathered up the traditional orange, red, and black, and then added a few new colors such as mint and pink. We ended up making a balloon garland to drape over our teepee as well as stuffing our teepee with balloons on the inside.

In the end, our stage is set for a very fun and beautiful autumn harvest celebration. Be sure to check out all the different games and treats we put together to make this party one that the kids won’t forget!
