Is it just us or do you feel an immediate pull to get outside as soon as Fall starts? We want to go apple picking, visit a pumpkin patch, hike through the woods to see the leaves changing, anything that will get us out in the beauty of Fall to absorb all of that crisp fresh air after the heat and humidity of summer. Even on the days when you aren't able to go on Fall adventures, you can still enjoy the weather and the beauty from the comfort of your own home.

Let's Start At The Very Beginning
Make the first thing you or your friends & family see when approaching your home be a cheerful ode to Fall. We love a good layered doormat look any time of year but it seems especially cozy during Fall. Add some pale green and white heirloom pumpkins and a lovely pot of mums (the official flower of Fall) and you have the perfect Autumnal doorstep.
Brighten Up and Have Some Fun!
Seeing as how mums are the official flower of fall and they come in such an assortment of gorgeous colors it provides you with a nice opportunity to get a bit more adventurous in the colors you use for your Fall outdoor decor. The above photo used their magenta mums as the motivation for adding a plush, vibrant, coordinating throw pillow. It's fresh, different, and fun but the textures and white pumpkin accents still keep it decidedly Fall-feeling.

Centerpieces Aren't Just For Indoors
Spread the love to your outdoor tables and give them a taste of that Fall flavor too. A few pumpkins and a jug of sunflowers fit the bill perfectly while also adding a little splash of color to your Fall table decor.

Small Spaces Love Fall Too!
You don't need a massive porch or patio to enjoy the Fall weather while watching the kids play in the leaves. Even the smallest little patio can become a beacon of the season with a few mums and pumpkins. Make sure you have a nice indoor-outdoor rug covering that chilly concrete, though!

Cuddle Up Against The Chill
Take that indoor-outdoor rug we just mentioned and add a plethora of pillows and plush blankets to create a comfy cozy cuddle zone. Grab a mug of hot cocoa and it's the perfect spot to cuddle up with a good book or a special someone and keep warm against the chill.

Fire Up The Good Times
Fall is the perfect excuse to fire up the old fire pit (pun intended) to keep everyone warm and toasty while enjoying those brisk Fall evenings. Roast some marshmallows for s'mores and pair them with a nice glass of wine or a cocktail for some internal warmth and it makes for the perfect Fall evening of outdoor entertaining. Enjoy!
