Fall Event Planning Ideas

Fall Event Planning Ideas

Yes, the leaves have started to turn and all this amazing color is inspiring us!

Swank Events has some amazing client events this fall and we’re sharing some pictures, colors and ideas that are getting our creative juices flowing!

Turning Foliage Colors

Dark reds, oranges, browns and yellow combinations are standard at any fall celebration. Yes, it can sound like an over-the-top Thanksgiving dinner, but with the right accents and other neutrals, this classic color combo can work for any event in the September through November time frame.

Simple Table Settings

Last year, we wrote a blog post about 8 Beautiful Settings for Fall and the post content is TIMELESS! Good for intimate gatherings or large parties, the key is integrating some of Mother Nature’s beauty into your table with pine cones, pumpkins or leaves.

A simple raffia tie around a colorful napkin can be a way for natural elements to be a part of the table as well.
