Fall Recipe Ideas:
Have a Soup Party
This idea is SO fun and would be a very easy dinner plan for a retreat. All you need are 2-3 crockpots for different soups, add bread and toppings, and you're ready to go. You could even get pre-made soups from the deli at the grocery store. If you need ideas, here's a greta blog post with Soup Party tips.
Lasagna is ALWAYS a winner
It's one pan, in the oven, it's comforting, and everyone likes it. Here's a winning recipe if you want to try something new for your next retreat.
Pumpkin Coffee Cake
It's not autumn without pumpkin, right? Coffee cake is an easy DIY dessert that can be a mid-morning coffee break snack, or served after dinner, hot from the oven, especially if it's chilly outside. Get the recipe here!
Fall Quilt Theme Ideas
At Camellia Palms, we love a good retreat theme. Here's some fun ideas for your group!
Fall into Florals
Play it up with sunflowers and autumn blooms at the dinner table, on everyone's sewing tables, and do a group project with warm orange, yellow, and burgundy florals.
It's not fall without pumpkins right? Go full on pumpkin spice with the coffee, the baked goods, orange group t-shirts, and pumpkin carving or pumpkin decorating.
Witch & Stitch
This is our favorite...invite everyone to bring a halloween costume OR just a witch hat and make things spooky. Add some fun Halloween music on Pandora or Spotify & have fun witchy-themed cookies and desserts.
