I couldn’t wait for the first day of September 22 to come so I could officially decorate for fall, slip on my favorite fall boots and start sipping on my pumpkin spice lattes. Then the Indian Summer heat wave decided to show up… so, we delayed our fall excitement and enjoyed summer a couple weeks longer! Not such a bad thing, but now that we’ve turned the calendar to October, and there’s a crisp in the air, I know fall has finally arrived!
To help get you in the fall spirit, check out some of my favorite things about this amazing season!
1. The Football Spirit: Fall means back to school and back to school means Friday Night Lights. I just love the excitement in local communities as its residents get ready to head to the high school for a game of football. Those cool, chilly nights in a football stadium combined with the excitement of sports is such a great feeling! Plus, we have college football and, of course, the Bengals to look forward to watching in the fall!
2. Bringing Out Fall Decor: It’s never really fall until you can set out your home decor. One of my most favorite things about this season is bringing in natural elements like white pumpkins, twigs, and leaves to enhance a farmhouse design. Fall decor is the best type of decor and we look forward to bringing it out all year!
3. Outdoor Fires: Of course fires are so much fun during the summer when you can make s’mores, have cookouts, and even pitch a tent in the backyard. But do you know what’s even better than a summer fire? A fall fire! We love cozying up to an outdoor fire with our plaid blanket scarves as wraps! If you’re planning on hosting lots of gatherings with friends this fall and warming up with a fire, we recommend keeping a basket full of plaid blanket scarves! That way, you can all stay warm and cozy without bringing your indoor blankets outside!
