Fall birthdays should be fun. The dream of a fall birthday party is appealing. You picture the beautiful backdrop with colorful autumnal leaves. The weather is a little cooler but not uncomfortable, so you can still look cute in your favorite dress and tights. There’s no need to worry about sweat stains because the summer heat is long gone.
But in reality, fall birthday parties end up feeling a little boring. The excitement of Thanksgiving or Halloween often waters them down. Besides, the weather is often wet, and the nights are getting darker. So, it’s tricky to make them feel special. However, you can still create a fun event for a fall birthday boy or girl.
Embrace the fall spices in your cooking
Frankly, the most exciting thing about fall is the pumpkin spices. Most people rush to their favorite coffee shop to order the first pumpkin spice latte of the season. So, a fall birthday would be sad without a yummy pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting! However, despite the popularity of the fall spice, not everyone enjoys pumpkin flavor in their birthday cakes. Did you know that many Americans have a love/hate relationship with the autumnal spice? They hate the hype and crave something different. So it can be a good idea to consider other fall flavors for your recipe. Apple and caramel cake or apple and cinnamon is a fantastic and flavorsome alternative. If you are a sucker for traditional cakes, the good old-fashioned carrot cake never ceases to impress with its delicate nutmeg taste.
No garden party? No problem
Fall is an unpredictable season. One day is sunny, and the next, it’s raining dogs and cats. Besides, as nights are getting darker, a garden party would feel gloomy and depressing, even on a dry day. So, perhaps, the best approach to a birthday party is to plan it indoors. There’s plenty you can do to create a fun and entertain birthday party with your loved ones. A movie night is the perfect compromise as it’s a family’s favorite. You can create a list of family-friendly movies to watch together. A game night with board games can also lift the mood when the rain is pouring outside. Besides, board games are a fun way of bringing people together.
Not in the mood for hot cocoa yet? We’ve got you covered
Forget about the summer smoothies. Fall is the season for a warm drink. Most people prefer to keep the typical cup of hot cocoa for Christmas time. So, if you are looking for something warm and exciting to accompany a slice of cake, these homemade coffee recipes will hopefully inspire you. Let’s start with the yummy low-carb option with a keto bulletproof coffee. If you’ve been inspired by the Dalgona challenge on Squid Game, you can try a Dalgona coffee, which is a thick, frothy-style whipped coffee.
Chai drinks are also a great alternative, as they are packed with delicious warming spices. Did you know that spices are good for your immune system? A lovely cup of cinnamon and nutmeg chai latte keeps you warm and healthy.
Are you ready to turn the autumnal gloom into a fabulous birthday treat? Fall birthdays are full of spices, fun, and excitement too. Make them count.
