If you are from a location where you get a true autumn feel, we hope you are not disappointed to learn that Florida does not get an actual fall season, especially here around your UCF apartment in Orlando. Compared to the summer months, it does cool off a bit, which we all welcome, but it is not the same to many. Not to worry, though, we compiled a list of how you can bring the fall season into your apartment near UCF to at least make it feel like fall in your home despite the temperatures outside. To start, think about your favorite things about the fall season. Is it the colors, the smells, or the memories of home with anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday? Once you have your top things, let us talk about how to bring those inside your apartment.

Let's start at the beginning and how to add some fall touches to your front door, porch or balcony/patio to welcome you home after a long day of classes at the University of Central Florida or visiting friends and family. Add a festive fall wreath or flag décor on the front door. A fall-themed doormat is an easy change for the season. Pillows or chair cushions for any porch furniture are also an excellent way to bring more fall colors and fun to your home. Lastly, add bright yellow, orange, or red flowers like mums to frame your entrance. If your porch gets full sun or you don't have a green thumb no matter how hard you try, you may opt for faux flowers, corn stalks, or pumpkins.

Any local Target, craft stores such as Joann's, or even a dollar store has many fall décor items to bring the season into your apartment on any budget. Look for faux fall leaves, feathers, pumpkins, guards to create a table centerpiece or accent existing décor pieces. Look for copper or brass bowls or flower vases to display around your home. Fall-colored throw blankets or pillows with fun sayings can update your living space for the season.

For many, the fall season's food, drinks, and smells bring anticipation each season. It may mean a home-baked apple pie from Grandma's recipe collection, spicy chili in the crockpot for the weekend football game, or your favorite pumpkin spice latte from the local coffee shop. If cooking or coffee is not your jam, maybe a candle of your favorite scent is enough to bring the fall season to your UCF apartment. Bath & Body Works 3-wick candles have all the favorite scents and will quickly fill your whole apartment with your favorite scent, whether it is Warm Apple Pie, Pumpkin Bonfire, or Fresh Fall Morning, to name a few.

Although outside your University of Central Florida apartment may not feel like fall, there is no reason to forego the season this year. Bring the season inside your apartment with all your favorite colors, smells, and eats instead.
