Bake from scratch – Take advantage of the season’s harvest and bake yourself an apple pie, or other recipe favorite from scratch. The smell of warm baked goods lingering through your house is the epitome of fall.

Host an outdoor bonfire – As the temperature drops, yet you haven’t quite surrendered to the idea of staying indoors, stoke up an outdoor fire complete with good company, mulled cider and plenty of smores.

This stunning closet in our Silver Spring Estates furnished model is what organizational dreams are made of.

Update your closet – It’s time to accept that you’ll no longer need those cute flats and breezy summer dresses at the forefront of your closet. Switch over your wardrobe to welcome fall by following our tips on organizing your closet.
