A Gorgeous Fall Themed Festival at the Grand Ol' Barn
1st Annual Fall Festival October 2020 at The Grand Ol' Barn, New Smyrna Beach Florida
We were so inspired by the sights, smells and traditions of northern fall events that we created an entire fall festival surrounding those iconic fall notes of warm apple, cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom.
We celebrated the coming of fall as best we could here in Florida by turning the AC down as far we could go and set up a fall event to satisfy all of our fall cravings.
We had every celebratory item we could imagine:
🍎 Apple cider bar complete with caramels, red hots, cinnamon sticks, apple slices and more
🍎 Homemade mini apple hand pies with towering scoops of delicious vanilla ice-cream
🍎 Apple cider donut bar stacked with fresh apple cider donuts dusted in powdered sugar and served in a paper pretzel bag
🍎 Caramel apple dipping bar with tins of mini butterscotch, m&m's marshmallows, dark chocolate and white chocolate and sprinkles.
🍎 Three flavors of cakes to take home including Hot apple Cider cake with cream cheese frosting.
🍎 Our very own iconic sweet tea bar outfitted with custom take home Grand Ol' Barn cups, lots of sweet and unsweet tea, lemons, ice and decorated with apples
In addition to fall sweets we also had BBQ platters from Flagler Tavern and a GORGEOUS fall bar with the most delicious bar menu:
🍎 Apple Cider Mule - Titos Vodka, Sparkling Cider, Ginger Beer, Cinnamon Stick & Sliced Green Apple
🍎 Classic Old Fashioned -1792 Bourbon, Simple Syrup, Angostura Bitters and Orange Slice
🍎 Lynchburg Lemonade
Jack Daniel's Whiskey, Triple Sec, Sour Mix, Lemon Lime Soda
🍎 Apple Cider Sangria
Sparkling Moscato, Apple Vodka, Apple Cider, Cinnamon, Fresh Apple
🍎 Woodchuck Hard Apple Cider (12oz Can)
The drinks were to die for!!
We also had a beautiful fall product table set with tons of fun fall products including cozy denim jackets lined in plaid, apple cinnamon spices, apple fritter bread bags, 3 styles of adorable fall T-shirts and candles.
We had an incredible live banjo band play all day and of course lots of fall crafts and fall games for the kids.
We finished off the day with a pumpkin patch and fall mini sessions for families that wanted to dress up and get their fall photos professionally taken.
