The season for Fall ribbons bounds over the months of September, October and November. With colors ranging from deep, yet clear jewel tones to muted and faded dusky shades, the palette for fall is unlimited. Begin with the start of school in September, with themes of apples and multi-hued leaves. Continue into October, celebrating the harvest of pears, grapes, grasses, and squash. For many October is all about Halloween, which merits its own section, found here. And as we put away the fun of Halloween, fall decor looks to the unity and bounty of Thanksgiving, reveling in the richness of the autumn colors and the dignified waning shades of nature preparing to rest and retreat over the winter.
