Your Easy Fall To-Do List

by | Decor, Self-Care

Fall here on the Pacific Northwest typically comes in gradually.  Temperatures start dropping with back-to-school time, leaves start turning colour and then finally mid to late October, start falling.  
Outside Fall Decor Welcomes Visitors

With the list of chores for getting ready for winter, I also like to do some things around my home to celebrate the change of season.

Here are some ideas that might work for you too:

  • Put away the summer cushions on the furniture
  • Cover the furniture before the rains start
  • Change out the outside front entry decor
Halloween Decorating
  • Beginning of October, add Halloween decor
  • Pick up some pumpkins for carving
  • Pick up some pumping spice scented candles 
  • Make GF apple crumble 
  • Make pumping pie
  • Starbucks Pumpking Spice Latee
Add Fall/Winter Plantings for Colour & Texture
  • Replace outdoor garden annuals with fall/winter plantings (look for texture & colour)
  • Pick up some chrysanthemums to replace in summer pots
  • Add fall decor touches inside
  • Transition to fall/winter wardrobe
  • Go on some walks/hikes to take in the beautiful change of colours and the crisp fresh fall air
  • Schedule some quiet time to do some year end reflecting and planning
  • Pick out some good books for fall reading
  • Buy and go through September Vogue
  • Pick out some good Netflix programs for those cool, lazy days

As you can see, my list really revolves around nesting at this time of year.  I think fall invites some reflection and some relaxation.  

What could you suggest that I add to my list?

I want to hear from you. Send me a note, leave me a comment.
