5 Ways to Welcome Fall
For me. fall baking starts with apples! Whether I am making Crockpot Apple Cobbler or Cinnamon Roll Dutch Apple Pie, my go-to fall fruit is the apple. I love to bake with them, cook with them and to me, eating a fresh Macintosh Apple is the epitome of fall.
2. Decorate with Fall Colors!
You don’t have to change out everything in your home to decorate for fall. Make a few small changes that will have a dramatic impact. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Pumpkins-pumpkins arranged near the front door or walkway are a welcoming yet inexpensive way to add a fall touch to the outside of your home.
- Gourds-place a few gourds in a bowl on your dining room or coffee table to bring the natural colors of fall indoors.
- Wreath-add a fall wreath to your front door to welcome friends and neighbors.
- Linens-update your dining room or kitchen table with fall colored napkins, table runner or table cloth. This quick, colorful and easy change adds a welcoming tone to your room.
3. Fall Scents!
I love coming home to a house that smells like fall! It is such an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up my house too. Just take a trip down the air care aisle at Walmart and i’m sure you can find a fall scent that you love. My favorites this season are the “Campfire Treat” candle from 719 Walnut Avenue, the Glade “Pumpkin Pie Diner” wax melts and the Febreze “Vanilla Latte” Noticeables. For just a few dollars you can have your home smelling clean and fall fresh all season long.
4. Fall Fashion!
We’ve dressed up your home inside and out, now it is time to pull out your favorite fall fashions and dress you up too. Fall fashion means sweaters, denim jackets, boots, leather jackets, scarves and layers! I can’t wait for the temps to dip into the 70’s so I can wear my favorite sweater!
5. Fall Fun!
Fall is the perfect season to be outside, it’s not too hot, or too cold. It is a great time to hike at your favorite state park, catch a high school football game or maybe play some touch football with friends. Raking leaves isn’t nearly as much fun as jumping in them but they are both great fall activities. Spending a fall evening around a fire pit making s’mores is also a great way to relax and spend time with your family.
