It doesn’t take much to give your home a fall feeling when inviting a bunch of guests over. If you’re hosting the big dinner chances are people are going to be more focused on the food rather than the decorations anyways. However, it is still nice to welcome people in with small reminders of the season around us. Get a chalkboard going for people to write their favorite dishes, have small fall crafting tables for the kids, and put out some candles and pumpkins to get everyone in the spirit.
