Happy Autumn!

If you’re not feeling the fall season just yet – maybe the weather is still more summery than fall-like, or life has just been busy lately – we’re going to create a cozy autumn kit to get you in the mood!

Get those fall feels

It seems like fall is the favorite season for a LOT of us.  And why not? The weather is crisp, the trees are beautiful, the clothing options are much cozier. (Hello, sweaters, boots, and layers!)  There are SO MANY fun things to do (if you need a few ideas, here are 24 ways to have a cozy autumn)…and it’s just a cozy season!

But this year, I’m just not feeling it…yet.  It’s been a little warmer than normal, the leaves haven’t REALLY started turning, and I’m afraid to put pumpkins on my porch because the neighborhood squirrels seem unusually hungry right now…

So, I’ve decided to build myself a cozy autumn kit!   And I want to share what I’m including in it with you, in case you happen to be in the same boat.  Even though I have minimalist tendencies (just ask my poor decidedly-not-a-minimalist husband), occasionally, something new to bring in a new season helps to get me into the spirit of those changing seasons. 

Pro tip: To keep the clutter from taking over, I have a storage tub for each season.  Nothing too big, and if it doesn’t all fit at the end of the season, it’s time for a quick declutter of that tub.  I like this system, because I can just pull out what I need and use that storage tub to hold any items that don’t fit the seasonal theme at the moment.  No clutter, no packing things onto shelves. Just keep it simple, easy to access, and easy to store away. And the best part is, if you pack everything away at the change of the seasons, next year your seasonal items will be ready and waiting for you, but also like unpacking a little bit of a surprise because you haven’t seen them for several months!

So what goes into a Cozy Autumn Kit?  

I think a good Cozy Autumn Kit should include some of the coziest things you associate with fall, to get those Autumn vibes flowing.  For me, that means fall colors (like oranges, reds, browns – really all the colors of fall leaves), warm drinks, fall scents, and definitely something plaid…    It should also be fairly inexpensive, full of easy-to-find items, and not just a bunch of small clutter, but things that you can actually use and enjoy!

So, here’s what I’ve come up with!

My Cozy Autumn Kit:

A new fall-ish mug

I use a mug every single day, so it definitely fits the “useful” requirement. It’s such a nice, fall color!

Fall teas & apple cider

Since we need something to go in that cute mug (besides my morning coffee, of course), these are my 2 picks.  This assortment of tea is in all the right flavors! And apple cider concentrate won’t go bad in the fridge, before I have a chance to drink it all!

A pumpkin candle

Scents play such a big part in getting into the spirit of a season. And obviously, pumpkin is the right choice for fall. Pumpkin shaped? Check. Pumpkin scented? Check. Plus, candlelight inside this glass looks so beautiful on a dark evening!

A nice fall leaf garland

My house doesn’t seem ready for Autumn until I have a few leaves out and a fall leaf garland is a really easy way to do it!  Put it on your fireplace mantle, across the kitchen table like a runner, over a door or window…lots of options here!

An autumn-colored throw blanket

Time for the cozy stuff!  A good medium-weight knit blanket in a fall color not only adds a little more “fall” to your home decor, but it’s also nice to snuggle up with on a chilly evening!  (Perfect for when you’re drinking that tea or apple cider, right?)

Something to keep the toes warm

I don’t love socks or slippers until fall and winter. In fact, I almost never even think about them rest of the year. But as soon as fall hits, I am ALL ABOUT the fuzzy, cozy, squishy options.
