10 Things...Beginning to Decorate for Fall


I don't know about you, but I just can't wait for the leaves to change colors, & the air to turn crisp and cool!

Just as nature is changing (or soon will be!) all around us at the beginning of a new season, there are little things that we can be doing in our homes to reflect that beautiful new beginning and make our homes a warm, welcoming place to be!!

Here's a few fun & easy ideas for transitioning into our Fall Decor:

1) Think apples! Not only is the start of school a clue (apple for the teacher!), but nature makes these delicious fruits available to pick soon for making pies, tarts, applesauce, cakes, & cider!




Go ahead and add some apples to your kitchen decor. Put some fresh apples in a pretty bowl or colander and place on the counter (or on your coffee table!) for a healthy treat that's perfect for eating in season.

Or pile a bunch in a large glass vase with a candle nestled in the middle for a lovely table centerpiece!

Choose your favorite variety & enjoy!!


I'll be adding to this "10 Things" list over the next week!

Happy Fall Everyone!!!
