Check Out a Few of Our Favorite Fall Party Themes

Fall is a season of renewal, making it an ideal time to host a party for friends and family you haven’t seen in a while. Maybe you guys don’t spend as much time together as you’d like to. So don’t wish; do! Bring the gang together for a fall celebration like no other with some of these seasonal party tips.

Tailgater’s Party                                               

Most people gather in the living room to watch their favorite sports teams compete, but let’s think outside the box. The outdoors allows more room for guests and better yet, more room for snacks! Inflatable footballs and football clackers make excellent party favors that your guests can take home with them. If you want to get really creative, try hooking your TV up in the garage for maximum enjoyment.

Oktoberfest Party

Invite your family and coworkers to an authentic celebration of autumn. Many local grocery and liquor stores sell German beer, so pick your favorite to enjoy with friends! For dinner, try serving German potato salad and bratwurst, and apple strudel for dessert. You can even surprise your guests with caricature sketches drawn by one of our talented artists!

Apple Picking Party

This is a perfect theme to go with if you have children. Follow a trip to the local orchard with an afternoon of autumn activities! While they’re playing, take their freshly-picked apples and dip them in your favorite caramel syrup flavors. You can save the candy apples for later consumption, or cut them up and serve them with peanut butter for an immediate sweet tooth satisfier. Provide crafts for the kids to make scare crows with. Don’t want to make a big mess? Take the party outside and add a bounce house so the children can burn off some energy!

Total Entertainment wants to make sure your fall party goes as smoothly as possible. Call us today at 888-339-9995 to learn more about all the services we can offer.

Play a Game of GaGa Ball at Your Next Outdoor Event

GaGa Ball Pit RentalAre you getting ready to throw a summer birthday bash for your child and their friends? Hosting a corporate teambuilding event for your employees? GaGa Ball is a fun, exciting game that can be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages and skill levels.

Never heard of GaGa Ball? Not to worry – It’s easy to pick up and play.

GaGa Ball is similar to dodgeball, except that it’s played in a free-standing ball pit with high, cushioned walls. This keeps the ball contained within the play area so the game can continue whenever the ball rebounds against a wall. It adds a thrilling, unpredictable element to the game that is sure to keep everyone on their toes.

Rather than throwing the ball like in dodgeball, GaGa players hit the ball with their hands to bounce it toward their opponents. This tends to make the game somewhat gentler and more kid-friendly than dodgeball. If you get hit below the knee, you’re out! Once a player is out, he or she leaves the pit until the round is over. Players can also bounce the ball off the walls of the GaGa pit to try to rebound it back at their opponents. You can find the official list of GaGa rules here. Feel free to make up your own house rules as well!

GaGa Ball requires teamwork, coordination and quick thinking to win. It’s also a great way to inspire some friendly competition among your party guests. Right now, we’re running a special pricing offer on GaGa Ball rentals to give more people a chance to try this great game! Give us a call or contact us online today to learn more.
