Glorious fall has arrived! This season is a favorite for many who can’t wave good-bye to the hazy days of summer fast enough as they look forward to the cool crisp air, falling leaves, and smell of wood smoke. And with that anticipation is a myriad of traditions full of nature, fun, and food that touches everyone with a bit of warmth and nostalgia.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Do you remember riding in the station wagon to a pumpkin patch in the country? There’s nothing that gets you right into the spirit of all things fall than being on a farm with pumpkins, animals, flowers, and homemade apple cider. Gather friends or family together for a sunny afternoon.
Get Lost in A Corn Maze
A trip to farm or pumpkin patch isn’t complete without an attempt at making it through the corn maze, and these days farmers set up some pretty newsworthy designs that bring together the old and young alike for quite a challenging try. Who will be the first one through this year? Find one in your area here.
When it comes to food, fall means pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! Pumpkin pies, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin lattes, and just about anything else you can imagine. But another fun staple not to be overlooked is the beloved caramel apple. This year when you visit the pumpkin farm or orchard, bring home a bushel of apples and try this fun twist on caramel apples which was featured on the The Dating Divas as a guest post from Michelle, of A Little Tipsy. This super fun dessert gives BOTH apple and pumpkin their tasty due!
Venture Out to See the Foliage
When Mother Nature dons her most beautiful wardrobe of the year, we can’t help but want to catch of glimpse of her in all her finery. Perhaps you’ve taken a trip up to New England, where the mountains are ablaze with color, farms ooze fresh maple syrup, and quaint covered bridges beckon travelers to cross over. At any given moment in the country, friends and families are taking road trips, day trips, and walks through parks to drink in the most spectacular display of the year.
Get In the Spirit with Fall Décor
Who can resist adding a bit of fall happiness throughout the home with berry branches, pumpkins, and potted mums on the porch to greet guests? Even the simplest touches can bring a warm and happy feel to any room. So, when you’re out on those walks or visiting the pumpkin farms, gather a bunch of colorful leaves and small pumpkins and gourds and invite fall indoors.
