Fall in Love With Autumn

Happy First Day of Autumn everyone!

Fall is such a beautiful time of the year. The leaves begin to turn beautiful shades of hot red, glowing orange, and vibrant yellow. The air begins to feel cooler, waning the summer’s heat, and some of the best holidays of the year are in autumn (Halloween & Thanksgiving).  With temperatures lowering and the days getting shorter, it’s time to create warmth in your home and to fall in back in love with autumn. Below are four simple DIY tips to infuse seasonal freshness into your home!

1. Accessorize Your Front Entrance: simply use an old wooden wheelbarrow or wooden buckets and fill with either fake or real flowers that exuberate autumn. We suggest deep rouge, burnt orange, and beautiful yellow gerbera daisies with golden spider mums and sweet gum branches. You could also have pumpkins in the porch area and a homemade wreath filled with natural elements hanging on the front door. Check out 25 DIY autumn wreaths here.

2. Accessorize Your Walls:Consider swapping out your artwork to include more autumn themed pictures or colors. Some neat ideas include collecting beautiful autumn-kissed leaves outside with your family and putting them in frames.  You could also change out your personal photos around the house and replace them with fun family fall pictures taken from Halloween or Thanksgiving.

3. Accessorize Your Coffee or Dining Room Table: Lanterns are very popular this season; so stay up with the trends and bring warmth into your home by grouping lanterns on your table or mantle. Add candles, pumpkins, leaves or even candy corn to the lanterns and utilize burlap as a table runner to create a flair of autumn in your home.  (P.S – lanterns can also be utilized for multiple seasons such as winter and summer).

4. Make Your Home Smell Like Autumn: One of the easiest ways to make your home feel like fall is to utilize candles, reed infusers, potpourri, or Scentsy candle warmers to make your home smell like autumn. Some of our favourite smells include apples, cinnamon, pumpkin, cedar wood, pine, juniper berries, and oranges.  To learn how to make your own potpourri check out
