Great Decorating Ideas for Fall & Anticipation of Changing Seasons

How to Begin

What is it that makes Fall so special? School brings excitement to children and the sound of school buses in the morning and afternoon bring the promise of another new season. It stays darker in the morning and there is a briskness in the air that makes you want to go deeper under your sheets on a cool fall day. In the evening you can begin to smell wood burning in the chimney’s and leaves begin to turn the most awesome color. Everyday you go out is different. The colors are a little brighter each day as the reds and yellows of Fall become deeper on the leaves of the trees. Yard work seems special as you anticipate the season of hibernation when you won’t be working in the yard.

I feel a new briskness in my step and the anticipation of the holiday’s is in the air. This is a time to slow down and enjoy the cool weather, the sounds of the leaves bristling in the crisp morning air as you sip your coffee. There is an anticipation and wonder as once againthe season changes just when you thought it was going to stay hot for the rest of the year.

What better time is there to decorate?

Pumpkins, dried flowers, wreaths.

It is so much fun to browse through craft stores and think about fun wreaths to make. I love bringing quilts out and warming up my home. Cinnamon candles burning inside seem like a special treat on a cool evening.
