Every week we comb through the news to find employment trends affecting the hospitality industry so you don’t have to. This week’s Hospitality in the News topic: 3 ideas to boost your hotel or restaurant fall décor.  

The start of Autumn is just around the corner which means it’s time to spice up your hotel or restaurant fall décor! Creating something aesthetically pleasing that can be photographed and shared on social media is huge in the ever-growing digital age we live in – and the change of seasons is a great time to do it.  

Offering opportunities for aesthetic social media content may not top your to-do list, but studies show that a huge percentage of social media users (in key demographics) have visited or ordered from a restaurant after seeing it on social media. In fact on Tik Tok, that percentage is as high as 53% of the more than 1 billion users worldwide. Statistics like that are hard to ignore.  

3 Ideas to Instantly Boost Your Hotel or Restaurant Fall Décor 

There are a few things you can do to instantly boost your hotel or restaurant fall décor that are easy to implement, such as: 

Inject menu items with fall flavors 

Even with summer temps, for many the first day of September signifies that you’re “allowed” to start enjoying fall-themed items. Think about traditional fall flavors like pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, maple, salted caramel, different spices – anything that invokes cozy feelings and imagery. Consider the products you already have in stock and figure out how to transform them into something that makes your guests feel like they’re enjoying their favorite fall activity.  

Grab some seasonal decorations 

What better way to usher in Autumn than with some colorful and fun decorations? It won’t break the bank or take a ton of effort to grab some fall garland or wreaths and a few pumpkins. You can base this around what decor fits the ambiance of your business; you don’t necessarily need to stick with traditional colors or decorations. Think outside the box and if you need help coming up with ideas, Pinterest is a great place to start.  

Host fall-themed events 

If you’ve got enough space, hosting fall-themed events is a great way to get extra people in the door and you have 3 months to do it! Some ideas for events you can hold include: 

  • Horror movie watch parties 
  • Pumpkin carving 
  • Cider sampling 
  • Fall-themed beer fest 
  • Corn-husking competition 
  • Build your own caramel apple
