Hosting a Pumpkin Party (Coffee Sips + Lovely Links)

Friday, October 20, 2017

This weekend, a friend and I are co-hosting a pumpkin party together. If you've seen my Fall bucket list, then you know that this will be fulfilling one of those goals. Last year, I had a pumpkin party at my house, and we had a lot of fun. I cooked soup and some pumpkin-y baked goods, which we enjoyed while we all sat around and talked.

This year my friend and I get to coordinate with each other, which means twice the yummy baked goods and hearty soups. I'm already drooling over the thought of it all, so it's a good thing I don't have to wait very long.

That being said, in honor of Fall, pumpkins, and the upcoming pumpkin party, I am sharing some lovely links and resources that will help you get started with throwing your own pumpkin party. Or you can skip the party and make all the yummy food for yourself (and your family if they insist you share 😉). Either way, you're going to love these ideas!


Today on The Peculiar Treasure, I'm sharing some links/resources that will help you get inspired to throw your own pumpkin party. #pumpkin #fall

Food

Soup

When it comes to the main course at a pumpkin party, soup is my go-to. It's warm, hearty, and just tastes like Fall, ya' know? I'm sharing a link for this pumpkin soup (because it sounds delish), but in all honesty, I'm going to be making my old favorite: white chicken chili soup. It may not be pumpkin-y, but it sho' is good!


Pumpkin Apple Bread

I think this is the third time that I have mentioned this apple-pumpkin bread, but guys, seriously, it needs to be in your life. I am going to be taking this delicious goodness to the party, but if I didn't love these ladies so much, I'd have very little desire to share 😉


Pumpkin Apple Cider

A few days ago, I decided to scroll through Pinterest to see if there was anything I wanted to add to the menu for our party at the last minute. I discovered this Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin cider. I've never tried it before, but I am going to make it for the party, so I figured I'd share it with you, too!

Activities

Charlie Brown

Despite the fact that I have never really celebrated Halloween before, one thing I have always enjoyed doing is watching Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin. If you want your party to be low-key but would like to have an activity planned, why not play the DVD while everyone is chowing down on soup?

Fall Scavenger Hunt

If you'd like a more active event, a Fall scavenger hunt would be an awesome choice! Whether there are kids at the party or not, a scavenger hunt will be fun for everyone. And honestly, there's something about a group of adults doing a scavenger hunt that is just so great! It makes me feel like a very happy kid!



Party Favors

Baby Pumpkins

Last year at our pumpkin party, I gave each guest a mini-pumpkin as a favor. I loved doing that and I hope to have time to pick up a few before the party so that i can do it again. They were the perfect favor, in my opinion!

Candy Corn Chex Mix

Another great party favor for a pumpkin party is to make Candy Corn Chex Mix and bag it up for each guest.

Fall Printables

There are a ton of beautiful, free, Fall printables floating around Pinterest right now. Printing and handing them out would be such a sweet pumpkin party favor!


Whether you are having a party for Fall, Halloween, or just because you love #allthepumpkinstuff (that'd be me), these activities, treats, and party favors will most likely be a hit. Use some of the ideas or all of them, and enjoy your pumpkin party!









Hosting a pumpkin party is a lot of fun and gives you a great excuse to eat all of the #pumpkin desserts, hang out with friends, and celebrate Fall. Today on The Peculiar Treasure, I'm sharing some links/resources that will help you get inspired to throw your own pumpkin party.
