The temperature is starting to drop. The leaves are changing colors. The stores are filling with Christmas decorations. There is no denying it. Fall is in full swing. It’s a wonderful time of year, and it’s the perfect time to get your home ready for the holidays. Aside from decorating your home for fall, there are several things you can do to make your home feel cozy and inviting.
Here are seven ways to achieve maximum fall coziness in your home.
- Fall Scented Candles
Creating the right fall-inspired mood in your home is easy with candles. Candles provide soft and inviting lighting, as well as a natural warmth to your space. Choose a scent that reminds you of your favorite fall desert or a setting that reminds you of fall, like the mountains or rich wood scents.

Nothing says it’s fall better than the rich aroma of pumpkin pie or turkey dinner. However, it’s not just about the smell of your favorite fall foods, or even eating them. Take time to enjoy the actual baking. Go shopping with friends or family members and make an event out of the prepping and cooking. Then sit down together and enjoy the meal, family style.
- Host a Movie Party
Fall often makes way for the winter blues and you may think about retreating for a while, curling up on the couch, and waiting for spring to arrive. Instead, invite people over to your home and host a movie party. There is no shortage of holiday themed movies, especially with the abundance of delightful Hallmark movies that come out each year. Fall and friends go hand in hand.
- Have a Board Game Night
Speaking of friends and family, very few things bring people together and invite fun and laughter like board games. Monopoly, Apples to Apples, Scrabble – there are so many games to choose from. Pit down the screens, turn off the TV, get some snacks and drinks and have a blast with each other. If you’re going to be inside then dust off the board games and have some friends over.
- Make Fall Drinks
Fall brings with it some of our favorite flavored drinks. The pumpkin spice latte has become a national favorite thanks to Starbucks and all the other coffee shops around. But there are so many more drinks you can make at your own home. Some of the best fall drinks are hot cocoa, apple cider, hot toddies, mulled wine, and others! The colder the day, the better to make one of these cozy drinks.
- Maximize Sweater Weather
It’s time to get a favorite sweater. Just because it is getting colder doesn’t mean you should only stay indoors. There is something so refreshing about the crisp cool air that fa brings. Put on your hoodie, sweater, or scarf and breathe in the fresh, cool air. Fall is also great time to learn to make your sweater if you want. Invite a friend over and learn how to knit!
- Create the Ultimate Holiday Playlist
One of the best ways to make the atmosphere of your home fall -friendly is music. It’s never too early to start playing Christmas music, although some people may disagree with that. Pick your favorite cold-weather songs and play them in your home. This really helps set the mood if you’re baking and hanging out with friends and family.
