Fall Neighborhood Soup Supper

Gather guests around an outdoor fire pit or an indoor fireplace. Cheer them with cheese and cider. That's just the beginning! Soup and salad are the perfect endings to an afternoon doing invigorating yard work, volunteering, crafting or baking together.

Soup Service

  • Serve the Squash and Bean Soup in squash bowls, following the "How To" recipe tip.

  • Serve the Slow Cooker Potato and Double-Corn Chowder in bread bowls. To make, cut off tops of small, round bread loaves, and scoop out the bread from the loaves, leaving a 1-inch-thick wall (use the scooped-out bread for bread crumbs another time). Ladle soup into loaves just before serving; replace tops.

  • Make your own Parmesan Bread Bowls or search "bread bowls" for more recipes.

Buffet Best

  • Have guests serve themselves buffet-style. Have TV trays or other trays available for guests to place their dishes and silverware on. They can then easily balance their meals on their laps while watching the big screen or sitting by the fire.

  • Make it easy for guests to grab silverware and a napkin by wrapping each place setting in a napkin with a piece of raffia or twine, like a package.

Centerpieces that "Center" Around Your Theme

  • Arrange apples and bananas in a wicker basket for an apple-picking party.

  • Arrange fall garden produce and colorful leaves for a yard clean-up party.

  • Or let Easy Scarecrow Cake or Pumpkin Harvest Cake deck your table as an edible centerpiece!

Favors & Crafts

  • Send guests or volunteers home with bags of home-baked cookies in fall flavors. We like these: Snappy Ginger Strips, Orange Cream Cookies and Leaf Cookies. Or search "Halloween" for loads of ideas!

  • Have fun crafting front-door wreaths together. Look for ideas in magazines or online. Assign shoppers to gather what's needed. Or use our Cinnamon-Apple Wreath as inspiration for your project.
