While I will always be partial to the Christmas season, I love Fall an awful lot. The leaves, colors, cooler weather (in theory, although it's yet to be a reality here), pumpkins, hot cider, start of school, etc. all get me pretty giddy. Despite my excitement, even I think that early September is too early to decorate for Halloween. However, I think I can get away with putting up fall decorations. Here is my plan: do fall decorations now, add a Halloween layer for October, then remove the Halloween stuff and use the fall decorations for November. This plan has three benefits. 1) My fall decorations work twice for me. 2) Adding layers of decorations gives it a well thought out and rich look. 3) They make me smile whenever I walk into the apartment. And frankly even if the first two reasons didn't apply, the third one is all I need.
Have you started your fall decorating? Are you a must-get-to-fall or not-yet-done-with-summer type?
