Fall is a season of rich colors and flavors. Autumn ushers in with falling leaves, pumpkins, gourds, candlelit dinners, apple orchards and hayrides. Let Signature Homes help you slow down a bit and fall for autumn. We’re sharing some ideas to get nesting, give thanks and show your appreciation for home and family.
Create a Thankful Tree. Start a new holiday tradition and invite friends and family to share what they are most thankful for by creating a thankful tree that can take center stage throughout the Thanksgiving holiday. Use this as beautiful centerpiece and feast for the eyes.
Thanksgiving Place Setting. Create your own place settings that loved ones can complete that are perfect for starting some sweet conversations at the dinner table!
Bring the Outdoors In: Bring the beauty of fall outdoors in with these DIY home projects using the season’s leaves and branches. You can use leaves and pinecones to make garland, wreaths and place cardholders. Reuse mini pumpkins and gourds by making them into mini tea light holders and fall succulent planters that will add a breath of fresh air to any table.
Fall is also a time to turn on those ovens and get baking again! From fall breads to desserts, baking with your favorite autumn ingredients is therapeutic and heartwarming. Using fresh pumpkins, apples, squash and sweet potatoes you can kick off fall by warming up the kitchen with these delicious recipes:
Mini Caramel Apple Hand Pies: Apple desserts smell as wonderful as they taste during the cooler months of the year. This recipe combines the deliciousness of apple pie with the flavor of caramel dipped apples and wraps them all up in one little easy-to-eat package. Everyone will come back for seconds with this petite treat.
Another sweet way to start your day this month is with Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes or Baked Pumpkin Donuts. You can spend an autumn afternoon in the kitchen baking a scrumptious surprise for co-workers or a neighbor with these Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes with Gingersnap Crusts, Apple Pie Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Whipped Cream or Pumpkin Sour Cream Coffee Cake, that have fall written all over them.
All the baking in the kitchen calls for some Hot Apple Cider served in hollowed out fresh Fuji apples. If you love the empty apples but still aren’t ready for a warm drink, fill them with vanilla ice cream, drizzle hot caramel and nuts on top and eat the entire apple bowl.
