Wedding Inspiration: Fall Reception Ideas

I really hope receptions at The Barn this fall include the following things:
*Lots and lots (and lots) of gorgeous, romantic candlelight. Giant candelabras! Lanterns! No matter how you use them, just know that you can't have too many candles. They create a cozy, moody atmosphere that is perfect for fall weddings, and this look is stunning inside The Barn!
*Fall foods! A fun hot chocolate bar, a fall-themed dessert table with donuts and apple cider, fall cocktails, mini pies, soup! 
*Pumpkins, duh. Paint them, cover them in glitter, or leave them their beautiful, natural colors (especially pretty if you use them in all sizes, shapes and colors). White pumpkins make a not-very-fall wedding theme/color palette feel totally fall appropriate!
*A bonfire + s'mores. The best reception entertainment. They're great all year round, but there's just something about sitting around a bonfire in the fall! 
*A couple random decor items that I love for fall weddings: logs/wood and wheat (after our famous wheat wedding, I'm obsessed with it!).
*Fall favors. Caramel apples, mini pumpkins that double as place card holders, s'mores, all kinds of delicious popcorn.

Here are a few ideas I love for fall receptions! And if you missed last week's post on fall ceremonies, check that out!
