Fall happens to be one of my favorite seasons. I like crisp mornings, changing leaves, apple picking, sweater wearing, bonfires, pumpkins... all the things that make this season seem so special.
This fall, I'm welcoming all those things, albeit a bit sadly because I know that the chill of winter is soon to come.
Though this is the case, it's going to come whether I welcome it or not, so here's what I've been doing to celebrate the season!
So many people have made Fall bucket lists. I was inspired to do the same. I thought Carson would hate this idea, but he got really excited when I showed him the things we can do this fall.
In addition to that, I had him bring up the Christmas boxes, where the fall decorations were stored as well.
I had the silk leaves as part of our decor last year, found the branches at the Dollar Store (we now live in the city, or else I could have found my own sticks) and stuck them in the vase I'd been using all summer.
I pinned this idea and actually used it. Love it!
Carson has asked me to please tell him not to eat these, otherwise his hands would be dipping in to grab some candy corn all the time.
I sprinkled more fake leaves by the entryway and moved around the vases which used to hold springy paper flowers... I think it works for fall.
We also had these Styrofoam gourds and pumpkins from last year.
I sprinkled fake leaves on the tops of bookshelves and tables in the apartment. John came in the day I decorated and said "It looks like fall in here!" I was happy to see that someone else noticed.
This is one of my favorite seasons to decorate for because the things you can use are so obviously seasonal.
