5 Favorite Fall Posts…so far

Happy Friday! I’m still in celebration mode this week as the blog just turned three years old. It’s crazy how this little baby keeps truckin’ along and making new friends.

By the way, if you haven’t already, be sure to enter your name in the Blogiversary Book Bundle Giveaway valued at $80.

The drawing is tonight, so get the details here!

As I’ve looked back at some of my favorite posts, I realize I really do love fall most of all. <3

I thought it would be fun to share my top five fall posts (in no particular order). >>

{ONE} DIY Pumpkin Seed Flowers

This was a fun post to write, because it involved getting creative with my leftover pumpkin seeds from our Halloween jack-o-lanterns.

If you’re carving up some gourds soon, be sure to check out this super simple idea.

The post also includes ideas for what to do with your flowers once they’re made – like napkin ring holders for your Thanksgiving table or even pretty Christmas ornaments. #crafty

{TWO} Fall Up Your Home

This post was written when the temps were finally dipping, and it really started feeling like fall around here in Northwest Arkansas.

I wanted to spruce up the house with some fall flair, but didn’t want to spend tons of money or time doing it. So I found five key places around the house that would instantly transition the home into a warm and cozy spot. Check it out.

{THREE} Inspiration for a Fall Garden

The cool air not only nudges us into sweaters and cozy throws, but also also inspires us to freshen up the garden.

I usually change up the color scheme of my flowers from summery pinks to cooler purples. And as I was searching for ideas for my front porch, I rounded up five of my favorite planters. >

{FOUR} Fall Chore Checklist

Okay, so the idea of “chores” isn’t the most exciting, but it must be done. I wanted to simplify the whole process (and even delegate a few things to my sweet husband and kids), so I decided to make a checklist for us.

To this day, I still refer to this handy PDF. Feel free to print a copy for your fridge and check out the full post here.

{FIVE} Halloween Treats!

While I’m not a food blogger (by any means), I still like to share some recipes from time-to-time.

This special Halloween post includes my all time favorite pumpkin-shaped cheeseball recipe. >

It also features these sweet cinnamon bat pita chips that I serve with fruit salsa.

Mmmm. I can’t wait to make all of these recipes again. There won’t be any tricks at this Halloween party, just plenty o’ treats!!

That’s a wrap! Have a terrific weekend, dear friends. And seriously, enter to win this amazing book bundle!!

The winner will be announced on Saturday here on the blog, as well as on Facebook (so make sure you “like” and follow The Neat Nook!)

Many blessings,

Kate

PS. I’m linking up with all of these fantastic bloggers again this week. Be sure to check them out. >>
