Fall into Friendship

New seasons bring change in all forms – cooler weather, leaves turning shades of red and orange and setting new personal goals. While video chatting and keeping up with friends through status updates and Instagram Stories is possible, this autumn, be intentional with your friendships. Make plans to fall back into friendship – and stick to them! No more rainchecks or “Don’t hate me, but I need to reschedule…” voicemails.

Text the group chat and make plans for a picnic at your local park this weekend to say goodbye to “Hot Girl Summer” and hello to “Cozy Girl Fall.” Grab your picnic basket or favorite tote bag and start packing the essentials. First to be packed should be KORBEL mini bottles for each friend to sip on while catching up. Next, pack sweet and refreshing snacks like caramel apple slices and fall-inspired apple cider cocktails.

Bring along a few blankets, pillows and serving trays to make sure the space is comfortable, and of course, aesthetically pleasing enough to go viral on TikTok. Remember to pack a disposable camera to capture the memories from the day – you won’t want to forget how much fun you had spending the day with your besties!
