Fall flower arrangements, pumpkin spice lattes, and more! There’s a lot to look forward during autumn but they’re all so easy to miss and take for granted because it doesn’t last that long and slip away incredibly fast. Before you know it, the fall foliage is gone and it’s Christmas already. In this article, we talk about several suggestions that will help you appreciate the slow and stunning stillness of this season and ways to make your autumn more memorable.
Fill your home with fall flower arrangements.
Fresh flower arrangements are undeniably breathtaking testaments to the beauty of each season and autumn is no exception. Take advantage of seasonal flowers, such as Dahlia, Cockscomb or Celosia, Yarrow, Calla Lily, in vivid shades of sunset oranges, fiery reds, gorgeous gold, and rustic bronze and brown. Even orchid flowers that are available all year round, such as Phalaenopsis, Cymbidiums, and Vanda, exude a more whimsical kind of appeal in moody and muted fall tones. Paired with fall foliage, dried twigs, and berries, these fall-inspired flowers will absolutely bring in the magic of the season into your home.
Stop and smell autumn scents.
Smells of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and apples are all about the sweet and chill autumn vibe. Indulge your sense of smell and get the full fall fever on by baking sumptuous pumpkin and apple pies. Got no time (or patience) for baking? HuffPost recommends filling a pot with water. Once the water starts boiling, add in cinnamon sticks, cloves, apple halves, and orange peels and let it all simmer. That should also do the trick! You can also light up aromatherapy candles that give off delicious fragrant scents! We especially love Cottage Greenhouse - Fields & Flowers Luminary.
Plan an autumn getaway.
Dedicate time to rest and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul this autumn. Go on a relaxing trip with your friends, family, significant other, or even yourself at California’s most beautiful fall escapes. Napa Valley’s vineyards put on a spectacular display of fall-toned foliage (minus the crowd) as the temperature starts to drop during the months of September to October. For cozy cabin feels with a picturesque view of the mountains dressed in autumn’s stunning hues, there’s Big Bear City, Lake Arrowhead, and Idyllwild nestled in the San Jacinto Mountains.
Embrace stillness this season.
Do you feel like you’ve been running and rushing around for the most part of the year? Well, grab the chance to take a bit of a breather before the back-to-back festivities come rolling in quickly. Autumn seems a fittingly lovely season for that.
Use the extra hour from daylight saving time enjoying a hot cup of tea sitting by your porch alone with your thoughts in the morning or eyes closed in a warm bath soak with aroma candles on the side. Catch up on snooze time. Quality sleep is so underrated these days but is super important not only for your physical health but for your mental and emotional health
