It’s almost time for our annual fall fest dinner!
A few years ago we started a new family tradition — a fall fest! It’s a special celebration we do to welcome to first day of Fall and it’s a great way to make a random day special.
It was a reader suggestion a few years ago, and it’s become one of my favorite traditions.
I found a few great things at Target to put this together
I’m so excited to team up with Target today to show you some easy ideas to do a fall fest with your family this year! The first day of fall is this week so we’re celebrating this weekend.
I found some really cute and affordable fall decorations from Target, grabbed some of their delicious snackable goodies from their Good & Gather line, and put together a pretty table and charcuterie board.
Here’s what I found at Target to decorate the table
- These cute plaid placemats that are $5
- Pretty cream cloth napkins
- Gorgeous eucalyptus garland
- Ceramic pumpkins
I used my own gray plates and gold chargers, and similar gold flatware.
The food I put on the charcuterie board
- Cured Meats
- Dark Chocolate Almonds
- Dried Mangos
- Cranberry pumpkin seed crackers
- Pepper Jack Cheese
- Other assorted crackers
- Brie Cheese
- Toasted Coconut Chips
- Raspberry Jam
Other things we do during the fall fest
The fall fest is a whole evening event. I make everyone wear fall clothes (or at least fall colors), we watch a fall-ish movie, and we definitely burn a fall candle.
I bought THIS gorgeous dress for myself for our fall fest celebration.
I also always introduce our next read aloud book for fall. I read aloud to my boys every night before bed, and it’s always fun to pick out a new fall book to read together.
If you’ve done this fall fest in the past since I’ve mentioned it on my blog, run to Target and grab some easy and cute things to put together your fall fest dinner!
