When the leaves begin to change, planting spring flowers is probably the last thing you’re thinking about—but you should be! For spring flowers like tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth, fall is the best time to get the bulbs in the ground. If you’re not sure how to plant spring bulbs, we can walk you through the entire process (it’s easy!).
Go on a Nature Walk
Taking a stroll around the neighborhood has health benefits any time of year, but it’s extra enjoyable when you can admire colorful fall foliage as you walk. Take the dog around the block or plan a time to grab to-go coffee with your girlfriends and take a long stroll through the park.
Volunteer at a Food Bank
Many families volunteer with local shelters or food banks around the holidays, but they need support year-round. As the weather begins to cool down, head to your local food bank to drop off extra canned goods or offer to help prepare a meal. Call to check in with them to see what their needs are before you go.
Decorate a Pumpkin
If it feels too early to carve a jack-o’-lantern, paint your pumpkins for fall instead. Stock up on white pumpkins and unusual gourds to decorate your mantel or front porch, and add a few coats of paint. We love the farmhouse look of a gingham pumpkin—and it’s actually easier than it looks!
Decorate with Fall Colors
Take inspiration from the trees outside and bring the bright colors of fall indoors. Look through our favorite fall decorating ideas to get inspiration for your own space.
Burn Your Favorite Fall Candle
There are so many ways to make your home smell like fall, but burning seasonal candles is one of our favorites. Bath & Body Works’ fall candle line is full of seriously swoon-worthy scents (hello, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles) and they even have a selection of spooky Halloween candles too.
