The summer heat is beginning to disappear, the trees are shedding their green leaves in favor of warm yellows and reds, and our favorite sweaters are out of storage and back in our closets. Fall is a favorite time of year for many of us, whether it’s the cooler temperatures, fall-themes activities, or delicious ciders and warm drinks we get to enjoy.
When it comes to fall activities, many of us think of going out to pumpkin patches or apple picking, but there are just as many enjoyable options to enjoy in the comfort of our homes. So when you’re stuck on what to do on your next Friday or Saturday night indoors, check out these four options.
1. Watch a New Film/Series
Sure, this can be done any time of the year, but there’s something special about curling up on the couch with a new fall blanket and watching the leaves change outside your living room window. It sets the perfect scene to dive into a new movie or TV series.
With so many streaming options at our fingertips, finding new content can feel overwhelming. Start by narrowing down your choices to a specific genre — whether you prefer fantasy content, action films, or reality tv series like Broadstream’s This is B.S. If you select a series, you can even make a weekly date night to stay in and watch a new episode.
2. Whip Up Something Delicious
There’s nothing like fall baking, from the warm smells of cinnamon or cardamom to the delicious pumpkin-flavored creations at every cafe and grocery store. So why not give it a try with your spouse or children? Choose a recipe online or from one of your cookbooks and try a recipe you’ve never attempted before. Baking with someone you care about is a great way to spend quality time together and teach each other new things.
3. Start Decorating
Your home is a seasonal canvas, full of so many decorating opportunities. With fall in full swing, why not swing by your local craft shop or department store and pick up some decor pieces that you can add to your home — from unique-colored pumpkins to a fall wreath on your door to greet guests. Throw on your favorite tunes and make an evening out of it!
4. Host a Potluck
This season is the most ideal for family and friend gatherings. The temperatures are just cool enough and fall decor is on display. If you’ve been looking for the right time to have your loved ones over for a delicious meal, this is it. But instead of preparing everything yourself, consider a potluck.
Potlucks are a simple and convenient way to enjoy a diverse meal with friends or family without putting all of the onus on you to cook and serve everything. Everyone invited is tasked with bringing a dish, from appetizers to dessert, and when everyone arrives, you’ll have a full multi-course meal ready to serve and enjoy.
