It’s my favourite time of year- the air is cooler, the leaves are changing colours and it’s time to get all of your cozy stuff out! I love whole fall aesthetic, with the candles, hot coffee, big socks and cozy blankets. Today, I wanted to share 31 easy ways to get those fall vibes!
I know I just shared a fall bucket list, but I’m so happy to say goodbye to summer and welcome autumn! I can never get enough of this season and I want to do all the fall things!
Fall Aesthetic – Ways To Enjoy The Fall Vibes
Pumpkin Spice – I know it sounds so basic, but forget that and tell me how you feel when you smell it? For me, it definitely puts me in the fall mood. You can make your own pumpkin spice latte or head to Starbucks!
Fall Aesthetic Photo Shoot – Go out and enjoy the fall colours and take some cute fall photos. Grab a huge leaf and use your camera to focus on the leaf, with you slightly out of focus holding it. Or have someone throw some leafs up and snap quick, magical photo.
Pumpkins Everywhere – Pumpkins are a fall must, and an easy way to decorate any space for the season. Head to a pumpkin patch and grab a mix of colours, sizes and shapes for a real aesthetic look!
Nature Walk – Crunching leaves and a cool crisp air that carries that autumn smell right past you is the ultimate fall vibe! Grab your bestie or you dog (for me, they are one in the same) and head out on a hiking trail or even just a wall around the block will pit you in the fall mood. I also love the earlier evenings, which make for the perfect sunset stroll!
Hot Fall Drinks – How does hot ginger tea, apple cin latte or a chai tea latte sound? Sipping on a hot drink is a cozy way to enjoy the cooler fall mornings. Sit on your front porch with a cozy sweater and some warm socks and sip your hot fall drink.
Cozy Blankets – By September, my couches are covered in cozy blankets. I want to be under a comfy blanket even if its still 80 degrees and the a/c is on. If you need me, I’ll be somewhere under the big fuzzy grey one!
Put On Your Coziest Sweater – If you haven’t already, it’s time to get out all of your favourite fall clothes. Put on your cozy sweater and grab a hot drink and start decorating for fall!
Sip Apple Cider – Fall is apple season, and that means fresh cider. I love apple cider hot or cold, and there is nothing like a cup of the fresh stuff!
Candles – Lighting a candle can instantly add a fall vibe to any room. I love the dancing flames and fall scents like sweet brown sugar spice, flannel, sandalwood and pecan pie. Or try a fall essential oil blend.
Big Comfy Socks – Put on a pair of big comfy socks on a cool fall day and cozy up with a good book. There’s nothing like a good pair of your favourite socks. You know, the ones you have had for years and wear way too often.
Fall Drive – Take a scenic drive to enjoy a of the beautiful colours fall’s natural aesthetic has to offer. Where I live, there are colourful mountains with winding roads that are so breath-taking.
Leaf Art – Spot a big, beautiful, mint-condition maple leaf (I’m Canadian)? There are a few different types of leaf arts to do with your fall findings- pressed leaves, leaf sketching, glitter leaves, wreaths and more! Check out these 44 leaf art ideas for more!
Drive–In Movie – Sure, you could enjoy the drive-in in the summer, but I love the cool and kind of creepy night setting that fall presents. Grab some blankets and some popcorn and drop the tailgate… it’s show time!
Have A Bonfire – Better yet, have a bonfire party! Nothing says fall like bonfires and friends gathered around enjoying a few spiked ciders and some roasted marshmallows.
Make S’mores – Kids and adults alike can’t help but want s’more! The oogy gooy sticky marshmallow, sandwiched between sweet chocolate and crunchy graham crackers.
Buy Those Halloween Oreos – How can you walk by these and not grab a pack? Halloween Oreos are a fall must have, with the sweet orange creme filling but same great taste, they are a Halloween treat you can’t miss out on!
Make An Apple Spice Cake – A moist, fresh baked apple spice cake is the perfect partner for a lazy Sunday fall afternoon. Even better if you picked the apples yourself!
Eat A Pumpkin Spice Muffin – Not much for baking? Go out and grab a pack of pumpkin spice muffins and enjoy one… or two… or three!
Make Pumpkin Art – Painted pumpkins last longer, so if you’re decorating early try painting pumpkins in September! It’s a way to kick off the spooky season and get creative.
Make A Leaf Pile And Jump In It – Leaf piles aren’t just for kids. This fun fall activity also makes great fall photo ops! Rake up some fall foliage into big, crunchy piles and jump in.
Buy Fresh Sweet Corn On The Cob – It’s officially corn season and nothing compares to a fresh, sweet cob of corn right from the husk. Add extra butter and salt and follow up with some apple cider and you’ll be in the fall mood so fast.
Go For A Hike – The air is less heavy in fall and the hiking trails are sprinkles with crunchy, colourful leaves. Go out and watch as the leaves fall and squirrels chase after acorns trying to pack their puffy little cheeks full before winter comes!
Be Thankful – This should be a year-round goal, but we use Thanksgiving as a reminder to be grateful for all that we have. I like to start my day with a list of 3 things I’m thankful for each day. I’m especially thankful for the fall season and all of the coziness that comes with it.
Visit A Farmer’s Market – There’s an abundance of fresh, fall produce in my area and the farmer’s markets are full of tempting treats. You’ll find typical fall produce- squash, sweet potatoes, corn, pumpkins, apples and more.
Carve A Pumpkin – I know it’s a lot of work, but it’s so worth it when you have your very own jack-o-lantern on your front porch. Don’t forget to save your pumpkin seeds.
Roast Pumpkin Seeds – Rinse your seeds off well and lay them out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle them with some olive oil and salt and roast at 400 for 20 minutes and you’ll be enjoying crunchy, savoury pumpkin seeds.
Watch Halloween Movies – Having a horror movie marathon is a fall aesthetic must! There are tons of Halloween movies to get you in the mood: Halloween, Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street and The Conjuring to name a few. Here’s a list of top Halloween horror movies to add to your list.
Buy Some Fall Mums – Fall mums are the ultimate fall decor buy. They come in all of the beautiful fall colours and are pretty easy to maintain.
Visit A Haunted House – Do you have any haunted houses near you? Are you ready to get spooked? Take a walk through a haunted house, if you dare!
Cook Cozy Fall Comfort Foods – Creamy risotto, butternut squash soul, beets and fresh baked buns are all delicious autumn comfort foods. And, they make your home smell like fall.
I hope you take advantage of all that this cozy, harvest season has to offer. Enjoy the fall aesthetic all season long with these ideas to get you in the fall vibe!
