Last Thursday was the first day of fall, so all of us who call that our favorite season can stop sneaking mums and pumpkins into the house and enjoy the fact that fall is officially here. To celebrate, I’m indulging in pictures of some of my favorite things about the season.
I love blue and white almost as much as I love fall, and blue and white looks especially great when paired with autumn colors.
Of course brown transferware is perfect for fall too and little pumpkins look great anywhere and everywhere.
I started an accidental plaid blanket collection when I found this red wool blanket at an estate sale.
And then I added this blue one from London.
Perfect for sitting by the fire pit, football games, even picnics. Everything about plaid blankets screams fall, don’t you think?
I’ve already made a batch of these pumpkin bars for a tailgate this fall.
This Apple Cider Sangria is a fall staple at our house.
We’re getting ready to have a few trees planted in the back yard and have decided to make a couple of them Maples like this one in our front yard. The fall color is gorgeous!
I love traveling in the fall and looking back at pictures from trips takes me right back. It seems we’re often in Chicago in the fall.
And Georgetown in Washington, DC could not have been lovelier than on this fall trip.
I always buy a new candle each fall. Pickwick & Co. makes great ones.
Finally, I’ve moved my Fall Pinterest Board to the top of my Pinterest page. I’m pinning fall recipes, decorating, table settings, inspiring pictures…anything at all having to do with fall. I love having it all in one place.
How are you welcoming fall?
