As the warmer months give way to chilly fall days and sweater weather, you’ll want the decor in your home to reflect the change of the leaves. Although you might not feel ready to switch over your decorations in your home from summer to fall, you could get more in the mood for fall as you begin the decorating process. Sometimes, simply getting started is all it takes for you to feel ready for a seasonal shift.
1. Relax With a Drink
When you’re decorating your home for fall, you should make it a whole experience from start to finish. Breaking out the bottle of wine, putting on your favorite tunes, and enjoying your day will make doing it yourself feel less like an obligation and more like a great time. When you decide to make your fall decor project a DIY extravaganza with wine, you should make sure that you’re not overdoing it on the wine. As Wine Insiders indicates, a typical glass of wine should be no more than 6 oz.
If you notice that you’re drinking too much wine while you’re decorating, you should scale back on the wine and avoid doing any activities that would be unsafe while you’re intoxicated. Also, if you have health issues that indicate that you shouldn’t have any alcohol, you can replace the wine in your decorating plans with any other beverage that sounds special. Maybe whip up a warm apple cider or a pumpkin spice latte at home to satisfy those fall beverage cravings if you don’t want something that will get you tipsy as you’re decorating.
2. Decide if Decorating for Fall Is Right for You
If you’re thinking about decorating your home to reflect the change of seasons from summer to fall, you’re far from alone. As Martha Stewart shares, roughly 82% of the homeowners they surveyed intend to incorporate fall decorations into their home’s interior and exterior design during the autumn months this year. While you don’t have to decorate for fall, it can be a fun bonding activity.
3. Protect Your Time and Space
When you’re decorating your home for fall, you’ll want to eliminate all of the potential distractions or obligations that may pull you out of the zone for decorating. What’s more, you should ensure that you don’t have any responsibilities that require your attention during the time you’ve blocked out to decorate. Doing fall decorations as a DIY project is just as important as maintaining your home’s electrical wiring or getting your sewer inspected.
As a result, you should make sure that any pets like dogs or cats have alternative care like a doggy daycare, which 19 million dogs attend each month, or pet sitter as you go about your business decorating your home for autumn. This will free up your time and energy to get more decorating done on your own. It also could give you time to deep clean the house without distractions.
