Hello friends! Today I’m sharing my tips on What to Decorate and Make in September to get your home decorated for Fall, add a new recipe to your menu and fun ways to spend time with your family! (I also have a very exciting giveaway announcement at the end of the post – you’ll really love it! )
September is a busy month for those of us that have kiddos that are heading to school or have already begun! Then there is the chore of fall yard work, raking leaves and and if you love decorating as much as I do, it’s a busy month to wrap your home up in cozy fall color and texture!
Plus there are those FABULOUS Labour Day sales to take advantage of – this is the one sale I stock up on end of summer seasonal clearance items so our deck and patio are ready to go for next summer. I also love to stock up on other things – I’ll fill you in below.
But first lets get to it!
What to Decorate and Make in September!
September is a great time to connect with your partner, your kids, extended family and friends with some fun activities! Go on a Fall picnic, have a bonfire! See our clever and easy way to keep your firewood dry for your fire pit parties!
There is a tinge of cool fall temperatures here in the mornings and evenings already. September is the perfect time to have a bonfire and make smore’s and start sipping on hot chocolate! September also can bring lots of rain showers so keep your fire wood dry with a clever storage idea!
Make a fall recipe or two!
I love to baking with pumpkin and apples in September! These recipes always fill my home with cozy and comfy aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon goodness!
And September is the month I begin to roll out my tried and true casserole dinner recipes!
I have a chicken lasagna recipe you.will.love! This recipe is one that everyone always asks for when we serve it at dinner parties. It truly is delicious! Try it!
Make some Fall DIY projects and decorate your home for Fall!
September is the month to harvest your hydrangeas that are in full Fall bloom – or pick up a bunch at the grocery store – and create a simple, easy Fall hydrangea centerpiece!
I love to decorate my home in September with the DIY glam pumpkins I made last year, they are so easy to make! I have so much fun decorating my mantel with my mercury glass pumpkins. I have a huge obsession with mercury glass do you?
Save money and stock up on the items you need during the Labour Dale Sale!
I love getting in on Labour Day Sale deals to stock up on gifts for the upcoming holidays, pick up a few new Fall decor items to refresh my home’s fall look and pick up some new sheets and throws!
