Falling leaves, cooler temperatures, and pumpkins can only mean one thing … it is fall and the Halloween season in the D.C. metro region! This week, we would like to share some ideas to get your home ready for fall. Our Fall and Halloween Home Guide is provided to help you prepare for a fun, festive, and (somewhat) spooky Halloween.

Indoor Fall Décor

It is time to store away your light-colored, summer favorites. This season’s colors are bold and bright – brunt orange, vibrant purple, and rich red. Opt for warm, cozy blankets and textured throw pillow in these autumnal hues. Scented candles also help to create a cozy atmosphere. Try scents such as apple cinnamon and pumpkin spice to remind you of the holiday.

Liven-Up Outdoor Spaces

Spreading pops of fall color around the outside your home is the perfect way to carry your fall decorating beyond the front door. During the fall months, magnolias add a nice, woodsy shade of green to your entry. Mums and pansies are perennial favorites. Place small groups of pumpkins wherever you’d like to add a fall touch.

DIY Decorating

You can create your own fall décor with simple DIY projects. From simple leaf wreathes to customized jack-o-lanterns, the possibilities are endless. Here are 30 easy Halloween creations to display in your home.

Halloween Treats

Like any other holiday, Halloween isn’t complete without delicious food. However, at Halloween you can be a bit more daring with your choices. From Pretzel Broomstick Appetizers to Mini Mummy Meatloaves, there is a recipe to please every ghoul’s taste.

Haunted Haunts

With nearly 400 years of history, Maryland is filled with ghosts. The alleyways of Annapolis, battlefields of Antietam and Monocracy, and streets of Poe’s Baltimore all have their share of ghosts. Their stories are just waiting to be discovered!
