{Fall Harvest Party}

Celebrate Fall with these simple garden harvest ideas sure to bring out the warmth of the season!

1. {Make an Entrance} Pumpkins carved with simple decorative slits line the path, inviting guests to come and sit around the harvest-theme table.
2. {Fashion a Party} A red barn is an ideal setting for a fall garden party. Orange mums and illuminated pumpkins, glowing like the sun, make for a radiant effect.
3. {Welcome Your Friends} A pile of pumpkins in a rainbow of fall hues is a sweetly seasonal way to greet guests. Pick the shapeliest pumpkin to be the center of attention and paint "welcome" on its side using crafts paint and a small artist's brush.
4. {Think Vertically} Give a plant stand an autumn-theme job by turning it into a pedestal for mini pumpkins.
5. {Dress a Harvest Table} A horse trough topped with an old door stands in as a buffet table. Green hydrangeas billow from a giant glass cookie jar surrounded by green and white gourds.
6. {Serve in Style} Pumpkins, squash, kale, gourds, and a basket of mums surround a bowl brimming with apple cider. Set the bowl in a large basket for a rustic presentation, and place cups and napkins in smaller baskets alongside.
7. {Transform a Pumpkin} Turn a pumpkin into a festive bowl perfect for chips.
8. {Arrange It}A hollowed-out pumpkin becomes a seasonal vase to showcase fall blooms.
9. {Set a Pretty Service} Select unusual containers, such as this yellow sap bucket and green wooden vase, to fill with napkins and flatware.
10. {Adorn It}Wrap a bittersweet vine around a tin bucket to transform it into a stylish wine cooler.
11. {Drink It Up}An old blue box, perhaps once used to store tools, stands in as a drink server.
12. {Keep It Toasty} Bring in a portable fire pit to set the stage for a magical and warm nighttime gathering.
13. {Make It Homey} Hay bales scattered just off the patio provide extra seats and tables.
14. {Create Warmth} Throw blankets made from simple cuts of fleece from a fabrics store keep guests toasty when they're not settled by the fire.
15. {Hang in Style}A swing hung from a sturdy branch allows kids another way to relish the last days of mild weather. Decorative lights strung on cut branches extend the fun into twilight.
