Tips on how to spend autumn holidays at home
Here are some useful tips for fun home autumn holidays. Autumn is a time of cosiness, delicious food and warmth (even if that’s experienced all year round). Whether the leaves around are changing or not, autumn is a time to do various things alone or with friends and family.
Celebrating solo or with family doesn’t have too much of a risk, but it’s important to consider where you are going, how long for and how many people will be there.
1. Carve or decorate pumpkins
For those who have never carved a pumpkin before, there are tutorials on YouTube. It’s also handy to use sketches to make things easier.
2. Bake a seasonal cake
For those who have pumpkins and apples, consider baking a homemade pie (or several). There is nothing better than an autumn day at home when a pie is baking in the oven, filling the entire space with its delicious fruity goodness. Maybe invite friends and family around to enjoy it too.
3. DIY Halloween and fall decor
Instead of going to the store and spending money on autumn decorations, be clever! Get together with family and think about what can be done at home.
4. Watch your favourite Halloween movies or TV shows
What’s better than revisiting favourite Halloween movies? Tune in to some of the classics such as Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
5. Make your own fall drink
Save money and make a pumpkin spiced latte at home better than coffee shops – this version even has a real pumpkin. Alternatively, try making mulled wine to fill the autumn evening with an extraordinary aroma.
6. Take pictures
Among many things, autumn is known for its leaf-changing beauty. For those who live in an area where trees change colour, enjoy the view! These are the best places and times to take great photos.
7. Design a Halloween costume
It’s never too early to start thinking about a Halloween costume, especially for those who take it seriously. Start by searching for ideas online. Maybe even plan a virtual costume contest with friends.
Stanislav Kondrashov reminds: “A suit mask does not replace a medical mask if you are going for a walk!”
8. Roasted pumpkin seeds
Leftover pumpkin seeds from decorating? Roast the seeds for the perfect fall snack.
9. Collect unique leaves
As the leaves fall, look out for the unique shapes and colours as these can be used to decorate the home or create a photo shoot for a holiday.
10. Throw a scary movie party
Have a night of scary movies and scream with housemates. Or else invite friends to video chat to watch them from a distance.
The quarantine autumn also has many advantages, the main thing is the desire to occupy oneself with something useful and interesting.
