Creating that ‘Fall’ Feeling in Florida

October 4, 2012

Oftentimes in Florida, the difference between the end of summer and the beginning of fall can be nothing more than a few degrees being shaved off the thermometer. While we don’t get to experience quite the same colorful change of seasons like our neighbors up north, we can however ‘create’ the sensation of fall by following a few simple tips.

1. Light scented candles around the room to capture the ‘smell’ of autumn! With fabulous fragrances like spiced pumpkin pie, evergreen forest, and gingerbread it’s easy create an autumn aroma in every room!
2. Plant some fall flowers! Traditional fall plants, such as pansies, violas, snapdragons, mums, asters, cabbages, and kale, are reliable methods of injecting a splash of color in your yard.
3. Bake an apple pie! There are so many fabulous recipes that remind us of fall!
4. Make your own fall centerpieces. A quick trip to a craft store will provide you with everything you need to create a colorful fall centerpiece. Pine cones, vibrant silk plants, and other creative items will make your home a fall fashion statement.
5. Travel north. Florida fall foliage, believe it or not, features brilliant hues and spectacular scenery. The changing colors of leaves in autumn is one of nature’s most beloved rites of passage — and makes for one of the most popular and inexpensive getaways for families — even in the Sunshine State. The Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail is a 30-mile circle along the east coast of northern Florida that cuts through four state parks (including Tomoka State Park), six local parks and 10 miles of up-close-and-personal ocean views.
6. Check your local newspaper for Octoberfest, Halloween, and other fall events. It’s a beautiful time to enjoy the great outdoors!
