Fall is here! Well, it’s been here since September, but with the cold, cloudy, and darker days here lately in Central Oregon, it really feels like fall, which gets us in the mood to bust out the fall decor, bake & cook comfort foods, and maybe even vamp up the decor in the house with new paint and furniture, to prepare for the darker, colder days ahead. Here are our favorites for all things fall.

Trending Fall Colors- When it comes to fall decorating ideas, fall colors are front and center. They’re bold enough to make a big impact, even with the smallest home accessory, like a single accent pillow or throw blanket. To capture that autumnal feel year-round, try warm paint colors on walls, furniture, and even your front door. Don’t stop there—let your fall color palette spill outside. Decorate your front porch for fall with all the season has to offer, from pumpkins to mums to pretty fall wreaths and more.

While the season may be fleeting, its rich plaids, warm hues, and all-around cozy vibes don’t have to be. Browse this gallery for fall color palette ideas, best fall color combinations, and fall paint colors to wrap your home in warmth all year round.

Tasty Food & Drink Recipes-

Pumpkin, Gouda, and Bacon Pasta- Bacon delivers bold, smoky flavor while pumpkin and gouda add velvety creaminess.

Pumpkin and Chicken Curry with Rice- Make the pumpkin curry ahead and warm it just before dinner to give the flavors and aromas a chance to meld.

Pumpkin Shrimp Bisque- Pumpkin goes savory in this delicious soup recipe. Succulent shrimp, veggies, and cream all join the pot for a rich, indulgent bowl.

Pumpkin Cream Turnovers- These flaky pumpkin pastries are simple to make and a delicious addition to any brunch spread.

Cream Puffs with Pumpkin Ice Cream- While the puffs are hot, carefully split each with a serrated knife. Then use a fork to gently remove any soft dough inside the pumpkin-spice puffs, leaving just the crisp shells.

Apple Cider Punch- Try a sparkling apple cider for your next fall drink recipe. Made with apple cider, juice and sparkling white grape juice, this apple cider punch is the perfect for the whole family. For an adult punch, switch out sparkling grape juice for a chilled champagne to give your sparkling cider a kick.
