Making it Feel Like Fall

Not too long ago we passed the first official day of fall. Isn’t it crazy how fast this year is flying by? It seriously seems like yesterday that I was decorating our Christmas tree!

Well, as many of you already know, I love this time of year. I don’t do a whole lot of holiday decorating throughout the year, but I do decorate for fall and Christmas. I just feel like adding some themed decorations makes it feel more like fall. It’s important where I’m from because I’m originally from the Midwest (Oklahoma) and our “fall” weather consists of temperatures that are still in the 80s and 90s. We don’t begin to cool off until late October to mid-November…and there are even years when we aren’t experiencing fall like temperatures until mid- December.

Therefore, decorating for the fall and winter seasons has always been important to me…it gets me “in the spirit,” I guess! Additionally, now that I have children, it has become more important to me because I can still remember the excitement I felt when my mom would start decorating for fall and winter…it meant Christmas was coming! So, this is something I want to carry on for my children. I want them to experience the excitement that I did at this time of year.

In case you are looking for ideas, below I have a list of things you can do to make it feel like fall around your house, too.

Make/Buy a Wreath – Some of you are probably pretty crafty and can turn the most boring materials into adorable pieces of art! I am not that way, but if you are, then why not go to the closest craft store and buy the items needed to make a fall wreath for your front door? If…

Wedding Colors for Fall

While most people consider spring and summer to be the best time for a wedding, there are many more who prefer to get married in the fall. Fall, or Autumn, is a beautiful time of year when nature provides many gorgeous color combinations of its own. If you have just gotten engaged and are thinking about getting married next fall, or even this fall, you may need a few ideas for great wedding colors for fall.  Below are a few suggestions:

Purple and Chocolate – One might not think that purple (or eggplant) would ever look good with a dark shade of brown. However, it really does. The chocolate works to give your wedding a warm feeling while the purple puts off a sense of elegance. After all, purple is the shade of royalty. Red, Orange and Yellow – If you want some of the brighter wedding colors for fall, then red, orange and yellow are the colors you’re seeking. These colors will brighten up your wedding while providing a beautiful sense of warmth for your guests. If you are up for adding a fourth color to the combination, consider adding a warm shade of brown in the mix. Olive Green and Rust – While you may be familiar with olive green, many aren’t that familiar with rust. It’s a very neutral, toned-down version of orange. It’s a little brighter than tan, but not as striking as orange and it looks amazing next to olive green. This color combination is great or fall weddings and one that is not chosen very often, making it easy for your fall wedding to stand out among the rest…
