Just because a Charleston autumn might still have a balmy summer atmosphere, this doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the season! With fall here, it’s time to turn your Charleston property into a cozy autumn oasis. Through decor, seasonal drinks, and comfort recipes, your warm Charleston rental can feel like a New England fall home. Decorating can feel a little challenging while navigating your rental agreement, and that’s why we at CREC have put together a list of tips to help you get started transforming your home!


Getting Cozy 

Fall is a season of transition, where a bright, lush environment starts turning into muted and warm tones. A simple way to spruce up your home starts at your front door. Get ready for fall festivities by pairing pumpkins, various gourds, and mums outside your front entrance. Bonus: add a few lanterns into the mix to elevate the look and add a welcoming glow to your gatherings. In addition to the outdoor decor, creating floral arrangements with seasonal flowers such as sunflowers and mums adds a fresh pop of color to the inside of your home. Toss a chunky blanket or two on the couch for a cozy and inviting feel, add some earth-toned cushions to the living room, and we’re getting somewhere!


Fall Fragrances

Special memories are linked with specific scents, and new ones will be forever remembered because of them! This ability that aromas have is exactly why you need to bring seasonal candles into your home this year. Be sure to check out Charleston Candle CO. for their clean burning soy candles and autumn specials hand poured here in Charleston, South Carolina!


What’s to Drink?

This transition between seasons calls for drinks that warm you from the inside out. While pumpkin spice lattes seem to hold the first prize for fall drinks each year, we can’t forget about seasonal cocktails (or mocktails)! Try spicing up your parties with sparkling apple sangria, cranberry margaritas, or apple cider mules!


Charleston Classic

If you haven’t tried Lowcountry mac and cheese yet, do you even live in Charleston? Fall calls for comfort not only in your home but also in your tummy. Try out this creamy baked southern-style macaroni and cheese recipe for a comforting southern classic.
