Once your moving company arrives at your new home, and you furnish the rooms with your furniture and other belongings, it could be a good idea to start planning out your fall decorations. This process doesn't need to be lavish or expensive, but you could benefit from adding a bit of color and seasonal decor to the rooms that you will use to host guests.

Candles with fall-related scents can be a great addition to the home, as your will give your residence an autumn smell and feel. Doing this in multiple rooms could be a good idea, but try not to mix scented candles, as this may not have the best results. Additionally, you will want to be in the room whenever you burn the candles, as leaving these items unattended can be dangerous. You should also follow all directions when lighting candles in the home to make it a safer process.

While many people enjoy adorning their home with large pumpkins, these fruits don't last particularly long, especially if you decide to carve them. Instead, choosing smaller, less expensive items from the gourd family may be a better decision. With small gourds, you can make centerpieces for tables, as well as line your front steps with these items. In order to make them last longer, giving each a coat of lacquer will help them last longer. This will slow the rotting process significantly, which can allow you to not worry about them through the season.

If you have young children, they usually take part in fall-related arts and crafts activities at school. Their creations may be a nice addition to your fall decorating process, and hanging these items up will make them feel more included when beautifying your home.
