Enjoy the fresh fall air by taking a hike in beautiful Morehead, Kentucky.

Across the bluegrass, we love to put out potted mums on our porches to usher in the new season, but what do you do to decorate inside?

Add some fall flair to your dining table with gourds and pumpkin colored flowers.  This fun, patterned tablecloth from Target (no longer available) adds a touch of whimsy to this elegant table setting.

What are your favorite ways to decorate for fall?
