Fall is a season filled with apple-picking, tailgating, and the beloved pumpkin spice.
Bring the fall excitement into your space with these quick and easy fall decor tips!
| THE GARDEN |
Feeling that familiar chill in the air? Your plants feel it too, and that means it’s time to bring in the houseplants, succulents, and tropicals. Make sure they’re placed in an inside space that gets good lighting and repot if needed!
Give your houseplants a chic Autumn upgrade with these faux pumpkin planters. They’ll look simply stunning on your patio or your coffee table or anywhere else you put them! (via Be Purposed - DIY PUMPKIN PLANTERS)
This can also be your opportunity to experiment with your green thumb and plant some new cold-tolerant flowers (violas, petunias, violets, and alyssum) that continue to bloom through frosts. Fall is also a great time to plant certain veggies (fast-growing radishes and peas, leafy greens such as lettuce, kale, spinach, and collards).
| THE DINING TABLE |
This spot in your home can be the easiest to bring in the Fall vibes. No need to overthink here, because even a few thoughtful decorations go a long way!
Consider sticking to neutral tones for table runners and place settings to keep your space open and airy during busy game day buffets or family parties. Small pumpkins, gourds, your favorite fall candle, and some flowers can be your creative yet affordable go-to decorations.

| THE LIVING ROOM |
There are so many opportunities to ramp up this gathering space with fall-festive items. If you have a fireplace, mantle, or any free shelf space, drape some leafy garlands and tiny lights to set the tone.
It’s time to bring out the cozy fur and wool blankets to keep you and your guests comfy, and nothing says fall like plaid throw pillows. Window wreaths are also a great way to accent doors or bare walls.

History of Milton
The Town of Milton is located in the heart of Southern Ontario and thrives in the shadow of the gorgeous Niagara Escarpment. Milton boasts winding scenic trails, great skiing at Glen Eden, seemingly endless paved bicycle paths and awesome outdoor tourist attractions. The area which is now Milton was first settled in the early 1800's by the Martin family from Newcastle England. Jasper Martin quickly realized that his 100 acre plot of land had Sixteen Mile Creek running through it and proceeded to build a grist mill on the creek, with a pond to harness the power of the water. Over a period of 17 years, the mill became the centre of a population base that grew to about 100 people. During this period, the town was referred to as Martin's Mills. The title then changed in 1837 to Mill Town before finally becoming Milton shortly thereafter. In 1857, Milton was incorporated as a town and was chosen as the county seat for the Halton District. Over the years, Milton has expanded it's borders by encompassing former sections of Oakville and Burlington, along with the addition in recent years, of parts of the Niagara Escarpment. Modern day Milton has received a lot of publicity and with the release of the 2006 Census, Milton was declared the fastest growing community in Canada. In 2008, Milton's population had grown to 72,500 with no signs of slowing down. Milton was built on the hard work and determination of it's early settlers and has grown into a dynamic, ever expanding community, that also cherishes the idea of environmental and historical conservation.
