How to Throw a Fall Party Using Only Technology


Break out the apple cider, sync your new fall-inspired playlist, and send out the invites. With Halloween right around the corner, cooler weather in tow, and colorful leaves enticing your eyes, fall is the perfect time to throw a large party or casual get-together. In the scope of current trends, technology is also a big one. We use it for everything, so why not let it help us throw the next fall party?

Check out these tech party aids for your next fall bash!

  1. Pro Party Planning: Smartphones and tablets are great, and with the latest and greatest in technology right at your fingertips, it isn’t hard to find the perfect app to help you be a pro party planner. Make lists, stay organized, and find the cheapest deals on food and drinks right from your phone.
  2. Sending Invites: In today’s age of technology, there are easier ways to give your guests all the information they need on their invites. If you’re sending a traditional paper invite, make a QR code and complete it as a great way to disseminate information or provide guests with an easy way to RSVP. If you prefer online invites, Facebook makes it easy for you to create an event and invite friends.
  3. Perfect Tunes: Before guests arrive, make sure that your music device is synced with the latest in fall, Halloween, or trending music taste. Sync it up and connect it to a quality entertainment sound system. Bluetooth works wonders for listening to your playlists without dealing with wires and hassle.
  4. Lights, Camera, Action: Light up the night and get in on the action by taking pictures with your smartphone and finding the best devices for that perfect lighting supplement. Whether it’s the Disco Light LED Flashlight app, or added physical lighting elements, make sure your event is lit for the atmosphere you’re trying to emulate.
  5. After Party Glow: We love hosting parties, but dread the clean­up time involved afterwards. By using technology to help us clean up, we can make our lives a little easier. Keep messes under control with cleaning apps, or invest in new robotic vacuum cleaners that can do the work for you as you focus on other things needing your attention.

Whether you’re relying on social media, cool new tech devices, or apps that can be accessed right from your smartphone or tablet, technology is a great solution for planning, throwing, and succeeding in a great fall bash.
