What better way to ring in the season than with a cute and cozy wardrobe? To create the perfect fall outfit, take inspiration from the changing colors around you, such as browns, beiges, oranges, and yellows, and invest in knit sweaters, fuzzy scarves, and your favorite pair of boots to stay warm all season long! Check out Pinterest for ideas on how to dress for the occasion.

Get Your Home Dolled Up

When fall roll around, it’s time to break out the decorations and turn your home into an autumn paradise. Arrange pumpkins on your front porch, make your front yard a spooky wonderland with witches, ghosts, and skeletons that are sure to delight trick-or-treaters, or find some fun crafts that you and your family can do together, such as this cute mini pumpkin wreath from HGTV.

Pick, Bake, Eat!

Nothing says fall more than a fresh, delectable apple pie, and there’s nothing more rewarding than making it from scratch. Head to Smith Family Farm, a 30-minute drive from Mountain House, for a day of apple-picking, hayrides, and family bonding! You’ll find the sweetest and freshest apples that can be used to bake the best pie you’ve ever tasted. Who knows, this could even become your new annual tradition!

Pumpkin Spice It Up!

Everyone knows that fall doesn’t officially start until the pumpkin spice latte hits the menus. Head to your favorite coffee shop to get the highly-popular drink. Best of all, you don’t have to leave your home. Making your own pumpkin spice latte is easy and cost-efficient! Once you take that first sip, you will be ready to step into a season of changing leaves, cooler weather, and cozy sweaters.

Watch, Scream, Repeat

Others might protest, but as soon as September 1st rolls around, it officially becomes socially acceptable to start celebrating Halloween. In addition to ghoulish-inspired looks, we recommend a movie marathon. Turn the lights off, cuddle underneath a comfortable blanket, and pull out your favorite family-friendly films, such as Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown, or if you need something a little scarier, A Quiet Place and Poltergeist.

Armed with an oversized sweater, a perfectly-delicious drink, and the desire to step into something new, you are now ready to welcome fall with open arms! We hope you have an unforgettable season.
