My Secret for Transitioning into Fall

It's still hot and humid here in Georgia so I am trying to think ahead to the cooler days of fall. It's too soon to pull out the pumpkins so I am sharing my secret weapon for gently transitioning into fall...apples!  I love adding them to my décor and having a hint of the smell of fresh apples in my home. So I thought I would share a few of my favorite ways to get that fall feeling with the help of some wonderful apple-y additions!

  1. Apples are such a great transition to fall!!

  2. Great ideas, but at 100+ degrees they'd get mushy, maybe some fake ones? :) Nancy

    1. Actually, most of them are fake...but down here in the South you just about can't survive without air conditioning so that helps! ;-)

  3. Loved all of your fall ideas.....It's my favorite season, and I'm ready for a break from the summer heat, so I'm counting down the days until fall!!

  4. I think it is a great idea to add apples to transition into fall decor. I particularly like that you chose Granny Smith apples, as the pop of apple green is such a great accent to fall colors. Thanks for sharing.
