Fall is Finally Falling

Fall is my favorite season, next to spring, and I am excited that if finally seems to be coming. The crisp weather changes, the colors of the leaves on the trees, the comfort food, and the fall layered wardrobe. The colors and smells of fall make me almost as happy as when it is time to pump the Christmas tunes.

In the home, fall means comfort and the use of throws and sweaters (ooh sweaters, my fave!).

Plaids and patterns are especially good in the fall. This table decor is probably one of my favorite I have seen using plaid.

And the patterns aren’t limited to the table. Sweaters and scarves are definite fall musts for layering. With the weather changes, you have to be armed with fashionable gear.

Fall foods are all about warmth and comfort. Stews, soups, and root vegetables are abundant this time of year, and I am here for it all! I love hearty vegetables and stews, and these recipes don’t disappoint.

Squash Lentil and Wild Rice Stew

Another favorite decor accessory of mine are pillows! Pillows can help update a room with the flip of a cover. You can mix and match covers to change with the seasons. These new ones from Home Goods are an inexpensive way to add a little fall color and glam to your home.

Whatever your fall style, enjoy the season. #FallisFalling
