There’s something perfect about fall. Gone is the sweltering heat of summer, yet it’s not quite time for the long, dark nights of winter. Fall offers something special that you won’t find during any other season. Here are a few ways you can fully embrace the fun of fall with your family.
Thanksgiving is still several weeks out, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait to start cooking tasty fall favorites. Apples, pumpkins, and butternut squash are all favorite menu items this season. Why not serve up some flavorful butternut squash risotto or surprise your family with John’s Three-Layer Apple Cake after dinner? You can try your hand at all of these recipes and more as you look for a new favorite dish in Martha Stewart’s fall cookbook.
Not into the spooky Halloween decor? You can still give your home a touch of seasonal flair. Invite fall inside with dry wheat wreaths, get playful with acorn lights, and learn new ways to use pumpkins beyond jack-o’-lanterns and pies. Good Housekeeping has tons of fall decor and craft ideas you can use to add some pumpkin spice to your home.
With school and holiday planning filling the schedule, it can be tempting to let your family just lounge on the couch in their free time. Keep your family inspired with some great fall activities. Not into apple picking? Maybe eating apple cider doughnuts is more your style. And did you know that you can still plant flowers long after spring has passed? Create new family memories with this ultimate fall bucket list.
