A time to refresh and renew, Labor Day weekend signals the summer season coming to a close. If you’re taking time to relax at home this weekend, consider accomplishing one or two home tasks that tend to pile up throughout the summer to prepare for a fall full of entertaining. 

Spruce up your front porch or backyard patio for fall.

Front porches call for regular upkeep and seasonal touches. Mums, a quintessential fall flower, illuminate porches and gardens with festive pops of color. In the backyard, prepare for barbecues or bonfires with friends with an outdoor table, Adirondack chairs, or even light blankets. 

Organize work spaces for a new school year.

Back to school season is in full swing - and with school comes homework. Consolidate desk space for a go-to work area without distractions, or, consider transforming flex living spaces to feature a portable homework cart.

Create a calendar for display.

From school to football to holidays, fall ushers in a slew of activities. Capture the family’s busy schedule with a calendar that ties into your home’s aesthetic, whether a rustic accent in a farmhouse kitchen or a sleek board in the laundry room.
