Fall Outdoor Entertaining

With chilly nights, changing leaves, and the return of football, fall is officially here! All of that means one thing: fall entertaining with close friends and family! This year more than ever, enjoying good company at home is a great way to get in the fall mood. Here are several ways you can spruce up your outdoor living area for the season:  


Enjoy a bonfire. Crisp fall weather is perfect for gathering around a fire. Furniture of Dalton has a great selection of fire pits to compliment any outdoor area! Whether you will be hosting friends for an outdoor tailgate or gathering with immediate family to roast marshmallows for s’mores, a cozy fire screams fall fun.



Enjoy all of the fall food favorites. Fall food is amazing, and enjoying it outside by the fire makes it even better! Keep it simple with wood-fired pizzas on the Big Green Egg, or take it to the next level with Brown Sugar and Pineapple Roasted Acorn Squash. Serve up warm apple cider to the whole family, or try this delicious spiked Apple Cider for the adults. Don’t forget something sweet! Set up a caramel apple bar and let the kids and adults alike get creative with their toppings.



Host a pumpkin carving party. Once you find the perfect pumpkins in the patch, invite over the neighbors for an old fashioned pumpkin carving! Print out fun design templates for everyone or have fun with the templates that come in your carving kit. Save the pumpkin seeds for roasting and toss them in salads, granola, or use in desserts! Add a little friendly competition by having everyone vote for their favorite pumpkin, or keep it fun and lighthearted by simply admiring all of the awesome creations.


Create a Fall Harvest Centerpiece. This DIY Fall Harvest Centerpiece from HGTV is the perfect addition to any fall get-together! With simple, step-by-step instructions and minimal materials required, this centerpiece is easy to put together and will look great on your outdoor dining set or seating area. Incorporating cinnamon sticks, apples, and fall foliage will set the tone for your fall outdoor gatherings and is sure to impress your guests. 



Enjoy an outdoor Halloween Party. With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, it is the perfect timing for a Halloween party! No matter how you chose to celebrate the festive holiday, keeping everyone outside not only helps you practice social distancing, but also takes the pressure of cleaning the inside of your house off of you! Serve chili, hot dogs, and other fun finger foods while enjoying all of the costumes and spooky decorations! Check out Furniture of Dalton’s Pinterest for more Halloween Decor ideas.

Labor Day Fun Ideas

As the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day is perfect for spending special time with family and friends. Amidst the current social distancing practices, the long weekend presents a great opportunity for small outdoor gatherings, BBQs, camping and so much more. As we embrace our new normal and prepare for all the fun that fall can bring, here are a few fun ideas to make your Labor Day celebrations a blast!


  1. A Classic Cookout- You can never go wrong with grilling out a delicious lunch or dinner spread for Labor Day. One way to ensure that you have the best cookout possible is to start with a top-of-the-line grill. The Big Green Egg is the best kamado grill, ceramic grill & charcoal smoker on the planet, with 7 convenient sizes! While summer gardens are still bountiful with fresh fruits and vegetables, take advantage of the farm to table opportunity and try these Grilled Vidalia® Onion Chicken Peach Skewers or go with a crowd-pleaser like Perfect Ribs. 

  1. Patio Party- Take advantage of the great weather that Labor Day presents with al fresco dining and gathering as we transition into cooler temperatures. Whether your Labor Day plans include a final dip in the pool or enjoying your deck or patio, a great outdoor furniture set can help seamlessly connect your Labor Day festivities from inside to outdoors. Create defined spaces and add a fun pop of color with an outdoor rug! Outdoor gatherings are also perfect for social distancing as they allow for ample space between guests and fresh air.

  1. Outdoor Movie Night! - With movie theaters across the country shut down due to COVID-19, an outdoor movie at home is a fun way to recreate a night out at the movies! Whether you prefer to watch an old favorite or stream a new release, follow these easy steps to setup a movie theater in your own backyard. Be sure to pop some popcorn, have plenty of your favorite candies, and refreshing drinks! 

  1. Backyard Camping- A great way to enjoy your Labor Day weekend is by getting in touch with nature. If you aren’t ready to fully embrace camping in the woods, your own backyard is a great place to set up a tent, listen to the sounds of nature, and enjoy quality time with family. Gather around the firepit and roast marshmallows while telling funny stories or play a game of Two Truths and a Lie. No need to worry about forgetting a crucial s'mores ingredient or bug spray! When your backyard is the campground, you can always run in and grab what you need. You also have the option to sleep in your own bed if the tent life isn’t your thing! 


With the unusual and challenging year we have had, making plans for enjoying Labor Day is a fun way to lift your spirits and get excited for all that the rest of the year has to offer! One of the greatest takeaways from the new pace of life is that you can have a great time in your own home with a little creativity. Furniture of Dalton is here to help you create the perfect setup to enjoy your Labor Day weekend and beyond. We have a great selection of competitively priced furniture in stock at our 120,000 square-foot showroom. Schedule an appointment today on Facebook or call us at (800) 262-3132. We are open Monday through Saturday from 9 am - 6 pm. We would love to meet with you safely to make your home dreams a reality!
