Fall means more than pumpkin spice lattes and turkey meals on Thanksgiving. It doesn't just mean that winter is coming, but it signifies change. Leaves change from green to yellow, orange and red. Temperature drops from blistering heat to slightly cooler. We even change our wardrobe from t-shirts and shorts, to sweaters and cozy scarves.
One thing people often forget they can change is their home décor! It can be fun to add touches of fall to celebrate the season.

These are a completely inexpensive way to tastefully bring the outdoors inside. Pinecones can be thrown into a glass vase as a nice centerpiece. They can make a nice wreath to hang, or even a garland to go over a shelf or fireplace mantle.

Happy fall and happy decorating!
