The fall season kind of snuck up on me this year. Trying to plan a wedding in the middle of the holiday season has not left much room for actual holiday planning. But I’ve been seriously missing that holiday feeling this year so I wanted to come up with an easy craft that could take my mind off wedding stuff and decorate for fall.
I’m sure if you’re inept at crafting you’ve seen the yarn pompom craze that’s been sweeping the internet. But my favorites, are the yarn balls before they become the pompom poof.
First, I made garland inspired by this post, just something simple and cute for me.
One of my favorite snacks are baked apple chips because they’re healthy, tasty, and easy to make. They can be baked simply plain or sprinkled with cinnamon, but they’re a real treat when coated with fruit sauces. Cranberry flavored apple chips make a delicious holiday snack. They’re flavorful and have an extra zing. You can also try other fruit sauces like raspberry, which is one of my favorites.
Fall can be a confusing time for a Floridian. While the rest of the country is wrapped up in their scarves and boots we’re still rocking tank tops and flip-flops. We’re lucky if the temperature drops below 85 before December. And if it does, we immediately bust out those boots, scarves, or beanies like its 40 degrees out. (But we’re sweating by 2pm because the sun came out and it’s back up to 85 – probably). It’s a weird time for us.
BUT that doesn’t mean we don’t trick ourselves into thinking it’s fall with a couple of other things – like pumpkin spice everything, apple cider, and pumpkin patches.
And I still like to enjoy all the fall styles! Dark colored clothes; berry and gold tones, and yes, boots with dresses.
These are just some of the things I’ve been enjoying this fall season:
Fall is my favorite time of year. In my house, as soon as the calendar flips to October it’s time to break out the fall decorations, hang the orange and yellow wreath on the front door, and light the pumpkin spice candles.
It’s also time for hot cups of apple cider tea, warm fuzzy blankets, and those knee-high leather boots!
I know what you’re thinking-
