Fall is here in Ruidoso and Alto New Mexico and there is much more than smelling the changes that are coming, you can see them!

Fall ColorsThe leaves begin to take on brilliant hues and the colors are spectacular to watch and witness.This is the time of year that thoughts begin to turn to football, hiking, and the upcoming holidays (for there are quite a few on the horizon).

Fall also has two of my moist favorite Holidays! Halloween and Thanksgiving. Keep these holidays in mind when planning your primary fall home decorating scheme and make small adjustments in order to accommodate the holidays.

Personally, I love the colors associated with autumn. The yellows, shades of gold, orange, and brown are favorites for my decorating taste. I always regret a little that this time of year is often overshadowed by Christmas as it approaches and the expectations of others that I decorate for Christmas almost immediately after celebrating Thanksgiving.

Below is short video I put together to get you in the mood for fall!
