5 Ways to Decorate Your Space for Autumn

It’s officially sweater weather here at Summit Creek, and we couldn’t be happier about it. With dozens of hiking and biking trails throughout the property, there’s no shortage of things to do in the great outdoors. But sometimes you just want to cozy up in a mug of hot chocolate and enjoy the comfort of your own home. If you’re looking for simple yet effective ways to make your home feel like fall, we’ve got you covered.

Pumpkins Galore

When it comes to pumpkins, there’s no such thing as too many. Consider purchasing a few large orange and white pumpkins to liven up your entryway or living room. (You can even get the whole family in on the fun by holding a pumpkin-carving contest.) Or, to add some fall charm to your dining room, consider topping your table with pumpkins of different sizes and colors.

Cozy Throw Blankets

To prepare for chilly Utah evenings, pull out your coziest blankets to add a warmth to your home. Whether draping over a couch or placing a few in a wicker basket, a few extra throws can transform the feel a room while also doubling as a warm wrap on cool nights.

Festive Doormats

Welcome friends to your home in a fun new way by changing up your doormats with the seasons. From pumpkin-themed mats that say “Hey There Pumpkin” to gourd-dotted mats that spell out “Happy Fall,” you can easily find a cute doormat that matches your personality and style.

Rustic Straw Bales

Summit Creeks expansive outdoor spaces offer endless opportunities for fall decor. Beyond pumpkins and fall flowers, a few straw bales (and a scarecrow, if you’re feeling really festive) provide the perfect, rustic touch to your home.

Candles & Autumn Scents

While candles are a great accessory year-round, their flickering warmth makes them ideally suited for the cooler months. Consider buying several with seasonal scents—such as pumpkin spiced latte or nutmeg—to make the entire house smell like fall.
