Savor Fall: 20 Things I Love About Fall

 
To kick off our Fall Series, here are the Top 20 Things I Love About Fall.


1. The Changing Leaves.
 
 

2. Decorating with Nature. Fall is the perfect time to use Nature's Bounty as a decor source. Bring a beautiful branch inside or place a bundle of leaves in a vase. Use what you've got!

 

3. Fall Produce. Celebrate the Fall Harvest by having a Harvest Celebration!

3. The Anticipation of the Holidays.

4. Bundling up! In our area, the weather stays pretty warm through the Fall, but we do have a few days where we get to bring out our sweaters and scarves to bundle up.

 

5. DIY Projects. Every Fall I get bitten by the DIY bug and I feel more crafty than usual. I'll be busy making wreaths, decorating our yard and dreaming up new tablescapes.

6. Fall Picnics. Sure, most people picnic in the Summer, but we are of the lucky few! We picnic at local wineries throughout Fall. And we love every moment of it!
 
 

7. Fall Cocktails. We enjoy Spiced Cider, Mulled Wine and Hot Cocoa. There's nothing better than curling up with a book or a good movie and enjoying a festive drink!

8. The Parties! Harvest Celebrations, Halloween Parties, Thanksgiving and even Friendsgiving.
 
 

9. Apple Picking. Make it a day! Pack a picnic, pick some apples, then go home and try every apple recipe you can think of!
 
 

10. Boots. I can't be the only one that looks forward to wearing boots. My feet are always cold!

11. Oktoberfest. Need I say more?

12. Carving Pumpkins.

 

13. Hearty Soups. I always use my Slow Cooker during this time of year. Soups, stews and chili are all staples in our house during Autumn. And I make a mean chili!

14. Football.

15. Planting bulbs for Spring. This year, we'll be planting Aliums and Tulips.

16. Caramel Apples. YUM!

 

17. Our Anniversary. We got married on September 29th because we love Fall and wanted another reason to celebrate Autumn every year.

18. Thanksgiving.

19. Planning Black Friday Shopping.
Here are my tips.

20. Spending Time with family.

What are your favorite things aboout Fall?
