Ideas for Making the Most of the Autumn
“Autumn” – it’s just such a cosy sounding word isn’t it conjuring up images of warm drinks, the last of the warmer days and the crunch of fallen leaves.
It’s also the time for a lot of fun celebrations, depending on your beliefs and location on the planet. Here in the UK, we have the Harvest Festival at the end of September, Halloween at the end of October, which is followed shortly after by Bonfire Night on 5 November. In the USA, there is of course Thanksgiving celebrated rather than Bonfire Night. After this, thoughts soon turn to the winter and Christmas Holidays in our house.
Before then, why not make the most of this Autumn to try a couple of the following autumn-inspired ideas:
- Cook a warming soup, a stew or casserole
- Visit a pumpkin patch/apple orchard
- Try a pumpkin latte
- Bread baking/cake making
- Go to a professional bonfire and/or firework display
- Watch scary movies
- Organise your autumn/winter wardrobe
- Go on a nature walk to take in the changes
- Decorate the house seasonally/have a Halloween party
- Trick or treat
- Carve pumpkins
- Rake leaves
- Toffee Apples
- Warm apple cider
- Gratitude journal
- Getting the garden ready for winter
So there’s a few things to do to welcome in the change of a new season should you wish to. Re-organising and updating the wardrobes has already started in our house with the kids heading back to school this week. Looking forward to a pumpkin latte too – that always feels soothingly autumnal.
Which one do you feel inspired to try?
