Fall was always a favorite time of year for my family, even growing up in Florida. I remember how colorful the house seemed when I would visit on a fall weekend in college. Now that I am in a place of my own, I hope to keep the fall decor tradition alive in my own place! Below, I've composed a list of my five favorite DIY was to add a touch of fall to your own bachelorette pad! 1. A WREATH- Nothing says "Welcome" like a sweet wreath ready for fall. While there a plenty of gorgeous options for purchase at stores like Home Goods. 2. REPLACING DECOR- While my apartment definitely has a color scheme, I love adding in holiday touches with things like dish towels, picture frames, and more. While I don't really have the budget (or storage) to be stocking up on a ton of fall decor, I did pick up a few plastic fall veggies, like pumpkins and squash, from my local Dollar Tree. I spray painted the pieces white and silver, which match the color scheme of my apartment, a replaced a bit of my decor with these items. This also works well for Halloween! I grabbed a few skulls and cats and spray painted these to match my apartment, as well. 3. SCENTS- There a few things better than walking into a fabulously scented room! While candles are great for evenings at home, it's important to keep the scent going.

Personally, I love the scent options from Bath and Body Works! I use wallflowers 24/7 and candles when I am cooking/ relaxing in the evening. Some of their best fall scents include Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Leaves, Apple Ale, Pumpkin Carving and Bergamot Woods! 4. TABLESCAPE- A fall tablescape can really go a long way in a small apartment! I love mixing rustic, masculine materials when creating my fall table setting--think plaids, wood, lanterns, metallic, etc! I picked up quick a few great pieces for this project at both Target and my local Dollar Tree. Not sure where to start? I definitely suggest heading over to Pinterest for some quick inspiration . 5. FOOD- Lauren posted on LPF about a favorite fall food tradition she shares with Jocelyn when they enjoy spiced apple cider and donuts on the first night of fall! I know they look forward to it every year, just like I look forward to the first time it's finally cool enough to make pumpkin bread! Take some time to enjoy a new recipe (it makes for a fun date!) with seasonal favorites like pumpkin or fresh picked apples. I am looking forward to trying this lightened-up Pumpkin Banana Bread from Food, Love & Life. Hopefully these tips help to make your place feel a bit more like home this season!
