Whether you are entertaining guests or just want to create a cozy atmosphere in your house, here are a few simple ways to bring autumn into your home.
Bake Using Autumn Ingredients
Autumn is the perfect season to bake with apples and pumpkins, two of the main ingredients of the season. Not only will they be fresh, but as an added bonus, your house will smell great as they are baking and for a couple hours afterward. Nothing says “autumn” quite like walking into a house with an apple or pumpkin pie baking. Other produce that is especially fresh in the autumn include: raspberries, blackberries, leeks, cabbage, figs, and pears. If you have a favorite cupcake recipe, you can also decorate the cupcakes to reflect the season.
Add an Autumn Blanket or Throw to a Couch or Chair
A blanket or throw that is added to a couch or chair adds a cozy look to any room. Look for blankets or throws that are in a brown, orange, rust, or red color that complement your other decor. Textures also help to set the feel of the season. Knitted or crochet throws are especially cozy for chilly nights.
