Transitioning our home to fall

I love fall. The last two falls, I covered our home in leaves and all sorts of goodness. This year, I decided to tone it back a notch and go for a more subtle transition. Residing in small living quarters, we don't need to change much to alter the atmosphere. Here are the very few ways we transitioned our home into fall:

For starters, I purchase Trader Joe's spiced apple cider. This is a must. I then pour a glass and sip it. I keep at least on half of these in our fridge at all times. That means, sometimes there is one full and one half. Never want to run out. True story.

I love sticking something fun in the window to wave at the neighbors. I picked this lovely mini sunflower from the garden.

My younger sister bought me these lovely leaf place mats last year from Bed, Bath, and Byond. I stitched them together to make a table runner for the center of the table.

My spiced cider candle from last year sits next to a new buttered pumpkin candle from Ross, also $3. If you can't tell already, the aroma of candles is really what does the change. :)
