Autumn Party Inspiration

As we welcome in the start of October, we really are welcoming in the start of Autumn. When the leaves turn golden and crunch below your footsteps, and when the air turns crisp and chilly. It also signals the build up to two of our favourite times of the year - Halloween and.... *whispers* Christmas.

To celebrate this time of year and immerse ourselves in the changing of the seasons, we at Flingers have been getting inspired by lots of awesome Autumn party ideas. And it seems that no Autumnal themed party is complete with out an abundance of golden leaves. Hang them as bunting for a feature wall, attach to party bags, use as table centrepieces or even create leaf shaped biscuits for your guests.

Autumn lends itself well to decorating a party or event, with lots of small elements you can draw upon to convey the theme. Making it perfect for weddings too! We adore the name place cards with a sprig of fern - simple, yet modern and classy.

The other element of Autumn which cannot go unmentioned is pumpkins of course. There are a million ways to decorate pumpkins - remember pumpkin carving isn't just for Halloween!  Spray painting, d├ęcoupage, stencilling and even screw drivers are tools for customising pumpkins to use as decoration features. But simply hollowing the very top of a pumpkin to hold a tea light candle is one of our favourites to discover this week. Perfect for lighting the hallway on a day-to-day basis as well as for a big party.

Will you be throwing a party themed around the new season?
