Pumpkin spice lattes are something most people look forward to as fall approaches. Summer ends, leaves are turning and you know the dance of pumpkin and cinnamon is just around the corner. So how do you drink in that sweet and spicy flavor all the time? You turn your home into a pumpkin spice latte.
Ok. Not really. But maybe the next best thing. If you’re all about fall and can’t wait to enjoy all the smells, flavors and colors it has to offer, dive into these simple tips and take your love to a whole new level.
Let’s dive in.
Start with smells. Think of the smells of your favorite steamed drink. What do you notice? The strongest smells are of apple, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin and vanilla. So head out and invest in some specific pumpkin spice air fresheners or candles or simply grab a few of your favorite scents and use as desired!
Next, go with color! No need to overdo it, just go with the accents. Think of your favorite fall colors; rustic red, rich orange, forest brown, evergreen, gold and burgundy. Grab some tea towels, accent pillows, tealights and even curtains to switch out for the season? Think about it – it’s a one time investment that you can use ever year to bring back the ambience and flavor you love.
Finally, tantalize your tastebuds with the flavors of fall while keeping your baking skill fresh and hot. Some seasonal favorites you can go with include cinnamon rolls, pumpkin bread, apple crisp, oatmeal cookies and of course, pumpkin pie. Things don’t have to all be sweet. You can make a simple pumpkin and squash soup with freshly baked sourdough bread! As long as you’re including cinnamon, vanilla, clove and pumpkin, things will taste just right.
