It is officially fall, y’all.
With the shorter days and the colder nights, we tend to turn our focus inward and have a desire to spend time with family friends. While haunted houses and hayrides are great – they also cost a bit of money. I’m here with a list of great things to do to celebrate the fall without hurting your bank account.
1. WATCH YOUR FAVE HORROR AND AUTUMN THEMED MOVIES
It’s an obvious answer, but it’s an easy idea to dress up. Your favorite autumn themed and horror movies are a great way to celebrate the season – especially if you invite your friends over! If you live in a warmer state, find a way to project them outdoors to make it super fun! Also, a lot of places offer free showings during the season!
2. D&D AND OTHER TABLETOP GAMES
Invite your friends over and run a campaign! Dungeons and Dragons definitely fits the fall mood and the fifth edition of Vampire: The Masquerade https://www.modiphius.net/collections/vampire-the-masquerade/products/vampire-the-masquerade-5-edition has just been released!
3. PLAN A NIGHT BEACH TRIP OR A BONFIRE
The beach and hiking sound like summer staples, but a fall hike and a night beach trip are a great way to make memories during the fall – just don’t forget a sweatshirt.
4. TOAST MARSHMALLOWS IN THE BACKYARD
And while you’re there – light a fire and dedicate a night to snacks. Toasted marshmallows and good conversation inhabit the spirit of fall.
5. VISIT A PUMPKIN PATCH OR GO APPLE PICKING
Most areas will set up a local pumpkin patch for GREAT fall photo ops. Apple picking turns into making fresh cider and pie at home with your besties.
6. HOST A TEA PARTY
Seasonal teas turn into a tea party! Have your coven dress in the autumnal best and trade gossip over a hot cup of tea and some charcuterie.
It’s an oldie, but a goodie. Thanksgiving is basically the last autumn holiday – so send the season out with a bang and count your blessings with your besties.

I was born in the late 1980’s to a fashion designer/theologian mother and Poseidon off of the coast of California. I was raised in a suburb of Los Angeles and grew up on fairy tales, museums, theme parks, classic literature, pulp movies, The Cure, and mismatched Chuck Taylors. I won my first writing award as a pre-teen. My educational background was devoted to the arts and the media; I’ve got a Bachelor of Arts in Directing Theater and a Master of Arts in Media Studies. I’m a Jane of all trades and a master of none, and yes - I’m oftentimes better than a master of one.
