10 Things We Love About Fall

There are so many things to love about fall that is was a challenge to narrow it down to just 10 … but we definitely found some great highlights!

Look through our gallery to find décor and recipe inspiration for this wonderful season for getting outside to play in the leaves, or just cozying up by the fire with a mug of apple cider!

  • Football Season - Tailgating

    One of the best parts of tailgating is the food and the drinks that come along with it! Check out these thermos-friendly cocktail recipes to bring to your next tailgate party!

  • Pumpkin Spice Lattes

    Our office practically counts down the days each summer until Starbucks will begin to offer their oh-so-popular Pumpkin Spice Lattes for the start of the fall the season! We found an amazing recipe from Inspired Taste for you to try if you’d like to make your own Pumpkin Spice Lattes at home!

  • Creative Decorations with Pumpkins

    Just add a little paint and you’ve got yourself a very classy fall centerpiece! This is versatile in that you can use it from early September through Thanksgiving and even Christmas festivities. We found this amazing inspiration from Your Cozy Home.

  • Football Season - Home Parties

    Seriously, even if you don’t watch football you can’t deny that these football shaped whoopie pies we found on Better Homes and Gardens aren’t just the cutest thing ever? They are pumpkin bread cooked in egg shaped muffin pans with cool whip as the icing.

  • Hayrides

    What a fun activity for everyone in the family. Nothing says ‘fall has arrived’ more than taking in the fresh cool air during a hayride.

  • Halloween

    Halloween is a holiday that delights kids of ALL ages! These Yummy Mummy pigs-in-a-blanket inspired appetizers are too cute to pass up! You just need dots of ketchup and mustard for the creepy eyes!

  • Pumpkin Picking

    An activity that makes us realize fall has to be the best season for outdoor fun! Not too hot, not too cold... and there is nothing better than picking your own pumpkin to bring home to carve for Halloween festivities or just set out as your seasonal decor! Be sure to pick up an extra pumpkin so you can make one of our awesome DIY pumpkin kegs!

  • Sweater Weather

    Yes! Sweater weather is here and we couldn’t be happier. There is nothing cozier than throwing on your favorite pair of worn-in jeans, some boots and a cozy sweater, and heading out to crunch through the leaves!
