Are you ready to bid summer “adieu” and welcome fall with open arms? Some of us just LOVE the heat and humidity and roasting in the sun, but sadly, I’m not one of them. While I enjoy the bright, sunny days…I welcome fall with all the pumpkin spice EVERYTHING it has to offer and I’m already enjoying the cooler evenings outdoors. Tonight was no different and we decided to celebrate the end of summer with a little outdoor pizza party with some great Spritz party products from Target.
I used a black paper chalkboard table runner to lay across my table. You can give the kids chalkboard markers or actual chalk and let them decorate it after dinner if you feel so inclined. I chose to pick up some gold Spritz letters and spell out Hi Fall! Bye Summer!
Because every good party planner knows a table needs height and dimension to draw the eye around the table, I used a simple white box as my centerpiece and prop for the cupcake stand. The cupcakes were also from Target and I topped them with a simple kraft paper flag to tie in the kraft paper placemats I found.
For the serving ware, I purchased gold striped plates and cute little gold polka dot cups for popcorn, which my son LOVED. I also found the nicest little aqua tinted mason jars complete with silver lids, which I placed kraft paper straws in to tie it all in. The mason jars added a little pop of color and the silver lid tied into the metallic theme.
Finally, I bought some cute little wooden chalkboard food labels and wrote some cute little notes on them with metallic markers. ALL of this was in Target’s Party Section with the Spritz party supplies!
No party would be complete without an after dinner snack…and these mini cupcakes added a cute pop of color and a sweet treat for the whole family to enjoy!
We had a great evening outside, enjoying the weather, and breathing in those last few weeks of summer before we officially welcome fall!
How are you celebrating the end of summer?!
