Fall is my favorite season.  It’s the time to unpack the sweaters that have been hiding away, throw blankets come out of the closets and hot drinks are sipped from your favorite mug.

What’s not to love about this time of year?

Decorating for autumn is so much fun.  It’s time to turn your home back into a cozy nest to cocoon in.

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”

Fall means pumpkins.  Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread and pumpkins to decorate your home.  Your entryway should start the fall parade of pumpkin everything to all that knock on your door.

12) Board games

A stack of board games is a great reminder of happy memories.  Why have them tucked away in a cupboard, when you can make them part of the decor?

Having them front and center in everyone’s view will inspire your family to challenge each other to a play off.

13) Rustic bread

The smell of bread baking can turn any house into a heavenly place.  Start pulling out all those recipes you’ve been wanting to try to get ready for a delicious autumn.

Not only will freshly baked bread make your taste buds happy, but it will certainly make your house smell amazing.

14) Chinese lantern

There’s something so beautiful about Chinese lanterns.   They certainly add a punch to your fall decor.

To make a beautiful arrangement, add a bouquet of Chinese lanterns to a rustic container like an old wood barrel or an antique crock.  Remove the leaves and add other fall elements like leaves.

15) Plaid love

Can I tell you how much I love plaid?  Plaid shirts, plaid blankets and plaid pillows just spell out cozy living.

20) Fairy lights  

I bet if someone did a study on if adding fairy lights to home decor, it would show that they add a touch of magic to everyone that uses them.

Maybe they remind us of twinkling stars in the sky and that’s why we have such a love for adding them to our homes.

Whatever the reason, add some to your decor and see if the magic touches you too.
