Easy Ways to Transition Your Home From Summer to Early Fall. Get ready for fall by adding a few fall touches to welcome Autumn without using pumpkins.
Transition Your Home from Summer to Fall
I love summer and never want it to end. On the other hand I love the excitement of fall. Fall brings cooler weather. And in Utah Fall is the most beautiful time of the year. We usually have warm weather with cool nights through Halloween. I love seeing the GIANT trees leaves change in the fall and it’s so nice to sleep with the windows open at night!
Transition Your Home from Summer to Fall NO Pumpkins
I am brainstorming fall porch ideas and I thought I would share a few inspirational homes that have added a few fall touches while still maintaining the overall summer vibe – perfect for August and September! All of these ideas are subtle ways to bring fall vibes to your home with NO pumpkins! I think we can agree that it’s too early for pumpkins in August haha!

Bring Fall Touches to Your Porch
Early Fall Porch | Southern State of Mind
The first place you might want to add some fall touches is at your porch! I love Heather’s porch with the animal print rug and colorful pots. She added some fall flowers that really give that fall vibe while still showcasing beautiful summer flowers. Be sure to hop over and see how she carried the early fall vibe inside her home too!

More Late Summer Ideas
Make the most of the last weeks of summer with these fun ideas!
Throw a neighborhood ice cream party or one with your family! I have a free printable sign you can print off and you can make a DIY ice cream cone banner using yarn and paper!
Grab my favorite popsicle maker below and make some YUMMY popsicles with your kids while the weather is warm!
I’ve owned a few different popsicle makers and this is my favorite by far! It comes with the popsicle mold which is silicone which makes it easy to pop the popsicles out once they are frozen. But it also comes with a lid with holes for the popsicle sticks so they stay perfectly straight while freezing and keeps the popsicles fresh as well! IIt also comes with 50 popsicle sticks and a funnel which makes it easy to pour the popsicle liquid into the molds!
Have a Beautiful Day!
