Fall is my absolute favorite season of the year! I love to watch the leaves change and go pumpkin picking with friends and family. This guest blog post comes from Sharon Garofalow of Cupcakes and Cutlery. Check out part one of her amazing budget friendly fall celebration tips series where she throws a fall party, including food and wine, for only $75!

I'm really excited to be sharing my tips for hosting a fall celebration on a budget. Although this party set up was styled as a fall party, all of these tips can be carried over in to any season.
This inspiration shoot was originally created for a contest on budget entertaining. After completing the shoot, I found out the contest was void in my state. The contest's loss is your gain as I tell you how I was able to create this look for $75 including food and wine. I will say that I am a bit of a party supply hoarder so that certainly helped with the budget, but I have tips that will certainly help you plan a great party, even if you don't have a garage full of amazing party pieces.
The inspiration for the party tables was the amazing brown, black and white fabric featuring soft pink birds from Ikea. I liked that although the theme of the print is woodsy and rustic, aka perfect for fall, there was also this really unexpected element of pink in the design. This fabric is versatile and liked that it could be glammed up or kept rustic, but hip. This fabric was left over from a previous project and was just begging to be used.
