Fall Décor and Recipes

fall decor and recipes | The Strand

Fall is in full swing and the holidays are fast approaching, so make sure your home is ready for celebrating the season.

Adding bright oranges, reds and harvest fruits and vegetables to your décor easily brings autumn indoors, but nothing else says fall quite like pumpkins. This year, try upgrading the classic jack-o-lanterns by incorporating these whimsical pumpkin decorations for fun accents. To add a delightful, natural autumn spice to the air, try making clove and orange pomanders.

For an even easier way to add a splash of seasonal colors and an extra touch of warmth to any room, you can drape red and orange throws over chairs and sofas and enjoy the extra benefit of having blankets closer as the weather gets cooler.

Of course, fall flavors are one the biggest delights of the harvest season. Change up your weeknight menu and add seasonal ingredients in unique ways. This velvety pumpkin alfredo is sure to be a crowd pleaser while also being a healthier alternative to the standard dish. Or try baking a decadent butternut squash and spinach lasagna to warm up any evening. And, for dessert, caramel apple cupcakes are a delicious alternative to the usual fall pies.

Here’s to ideas that inspire making the most of the season. Wishing you a fall filled with great moments spent with neighbors, friends and family.
