Outside, there are many ways to celebrate the autumn. If you have front steps, you may want to place pumpkins, gourds, straw and the like on them, and you can even make a scarecrow to sit on your porch. When trees in your neighborhood shed orange and golden leaves, pick them up and add them to your outside collection of fall decorations. If you are a gardener, buy a collection of mums to spread out amongst the front yard. Mums come in many pretty colors and are usually easy to keep if you just water them every day. They bring much beauty to your landscape.
A new 'Welcome.' Update your exterior entry way with a new welcome mat, one that can handle the fall/winter traffic and that coordinates with your home. Blanket your rooms with warmth. On your bed and sofa, or on a window seat, add a warm blanket in a fall color that coordinates with your decor (think warm oranges, reds, plums, browns, greens or deep gold tones). This is both practical and beautiful-adding a new color to an often-used living space creates an instant update. If you are changing your entire bedding for the season, consider changing your bed skirt, too.
Also with this time of year are the new candle scents that are being introduced. Some of the scents I have seen are Autumn in the Park, Crisp Morning Air, Sweater Weather, Marshmallow Fireside, Pumpkin Pit Stop and Apple Tree Picnic. We cannot forget the flowers that bloom in the fall. These perennials are Aster, Red Spider Lily, Fall Crocus and Toad Lily and will be back year after year for our pleasure and enjoyment. Not to mention their decorative properties.
