There is a variety of ways you can get ready for fall! A typical autumn vegetable is no other than the pumpkin. Not only is it delicious and healthy, but placing some pumpkins in your garden or porch will give your house an autumn ambience.

Then wrap a string of fairy lights all around it, to illuminate your house at night!
