I love fall. The last two falls, I covered our home in leaves and all sorts of goodness. This year, I decided to tone it back a notch and go for a more subtle transition. Residing in small living quarters, we don't need to change much to alter the atmosphere. Here are the very few ways we transitioned our home into fall:
For starters, I purchase Trader Joe's spiced apple cider. This is a must. I then pour a glass and sip it. I keep at least on half of these in our fridge at all times. That means, sometimes there is one full and one half. Never want to run out. True story.
I love sticking something fun in the window to wave at the neighbors. I picked this lovely mini sunflower from the garden.
$3 bouquet at Trader Joe's bursting with fall colors. Brings the table together.
My younger sister bought me these lovely leaf place mats last year from Bed, Bath, and Byond. I stitched them together to make a table runner for the center of the table.
Autumn sign- $6 at Jo Anne's.
Pumpkin Latte mason jar cande, $3 at Ross. Fills the air with deliciousness. Basket full of pumpkins and squash; $0.69/each at Trader Joe's.
My spiced cider candle from last year sits next to a new buttered pumpkin candle from Ross, also $3. If you can't tell already, the aroma of candles is really what does the change. :)
And of course: perfectly colored silk flowers! Thank you, Kathleen.
Can't have too many pumpkins and squash around.
Our neighbors - the Alstons - have the cutest set up! She filled basket full of those scented pine cones. I am going to do that come mid-october. It smells sooooo good!
