Country Belle Chic’s Fall Bucket List

fall

Fall- my favorite season of them all! We are TWO days away from the start of the season and every year, there are several things I MUST do before it ends, so here is my fall bucket list:

  • Tailgate at a football game.
  • Go apple picking.
  • Buy school supplies.
  • Watch Halloween movies.
  • Decorate with tons of pumpkins and DIY fall crafts.
  • Travel through the mountains to see the leaves.
  • Visit the county fair.
  • Carve a pumpkin.
  • Make an apple pie, apple butter, apple pie, and homemade apple sauce. (Can you tell I like apples…alot?)
  • Stuff myself during the holidays.
  • Go on a hayride.
  • Eat s’mores at a bonfire.
  • Wear a hoodie, while snuggling up with a cup of hot chocolate.

It’s fall, y’all!

Trick-or-treat! Smell my feet! Ok…hopefully, not.

Going trick-or-treating on Halloween is just one of the many fun parts to the holiday. So, why not make giving out candy just a little bit more creative? Add that extra Halloween flare with putting the candy into vinyl gloves and closing the top with a ribbon.

Trick-or-treating just got better with some quick and easy Halloween candy gift bags.
