Fall is quickly approaching, so it is time to start getting ready for all of the fun fall festivities. Football games, Halloween and of course, fall décor.
Fall is a busy time of year for everyone, so having your home ready for guests is necessary. Here are some quick and easy tips for having your home ready for entertaining friends and family this fall:
- Clean out all of the flowerbeds of spring and summer flowers that are starting to look a little sad. Once the cooler weather is finally upon us in late September, early October, replace these flowers with pansies and mums for splashes of color throughout your flowerbed and in your pots.
- Create or purchase a new fall or Halloween themed wreath for the front door. Wreaths are easy to make, just check out Pinterest. There are tons of themes that go with fall from Football and Basketball team theme wreaths, to just a simple Fall or Halloween wreath.
- Pumpkins and a hay bale on the front porch or in the front flower bed are also a very simple way to add some pizazz to your home and give it some fall curb appeal.
- Inside your home, you don’t have to go over the top with decorating for fall to make your home feel cozy and have that “fall feeling” Some easy things we recommend are getting new fall scents in the home. Little pumpkins in glass vases are also a very easy touch that you can put on the mantle or on the bar in the Kitchen. Your local craft store will also have some small Fall and Halloween décor, usually on sale throughout this season to add some fun and whimsy to your home.
We hope you all are excited for the Fall season to be upon us! Also, make sure to mark your calendars for the Parade of Homes starting October 19th!
