Autumn Bucket List 2020

And so the autumn content begins… and I couldn’t be happier! As much as I like the warm weather and bright blue skies of the summer months, golden leaves, cosy jumpers and crisp air have me living my best life.

This year, autumn is a little bit different. There’s a chance that everything might be a bit restricted, or completely shut down over night, but after the absolute travesty that was the last six months I want to make a real effort to enjoy the autumnal season as best I can, whilst still adhering to the guidelines of course. And, as I love spending this season outdoors, fingers crossed the global pandemic won’t get in the way too much.

So, to get myself into the spirit, I thought I’d write a little autumn bucket list for this year. Just a few things I want to do or see to get the most out of this time of year, and maybe some inspiration for you too!

Watch all the cosy autumnal films – I’m thinking You’ve Got Mail and every single Harry Potter film.

Enjoy fall inspired music – I’m looking at you Red and Folklore…

Take many walks in the park – There’s nothing I love more than the fresh air and crispy golden leaves crunching under my autumn boots at this time of year!

Go on a breezy beach trip – You can combat the cold sea air by wrapping up with fall toned scarf and even taking a blanket!

Go on some autumnal dates – A trip to a pumpkin batch or a sweet hot choc cafe date maybe?

Take a walk in the woods – Perfect for capturing autumn Instragram snaps and being surrounded by leaves in fiery shades of red, orange and yellow.

Go cosy jumper shopping – I love to add to my collection each year; I’m thinking of a burnt orange one this time round!

Have a Halloween film night – I’m not a big fan of horrors but there is definitely Halloween themed films that aren’t too scary – Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown!

Do some pumpkin carving – No matter how old I get, I always wanted to carve a pumpkin – I’m thinking of designs already!

Do some Autumn themed baking – I need to find some recipes! I’d love to make pumpkin cookies, or something toffee apple or cinnamon-esque.

Go to a scare experience – If they’re open! Although I don’t like horror films, I love a scare experience!

Visit a fall themed castle – Again, if they’re open! I know Warwick castle does a great Halloween themed event that I went to a few years ago.

Go to a Bonfire Night celebration – Fireworks displays are one of my most favourite parts of the autumn period. Hopefully we’ll be able to go to a socially distanced display this year.

What do you like do to during the autumnal period? Anything else I should add to my autumn bucket list this year?

    I love autumn too, the colours and the leaves in particular. I’m hoping that summer isn’t quite over yet, because I don’t enjoy the rain we get most of the season. We’re off for a woodland walk today though. Enjoy the season, I hope you get to do everything on your list.

    Gorgeous list!!! I cant wait for scarfs and leaves and celebrating halloween with my flatmates. Harry Potter is definitely excellent for Autumn and you’ve got mail is such an underrated film!!! Xxx

    Love this post and ideas for things to do. I’m definitely ready for Autumn. Love cosy nights in and being able to put my fairy lights and candles on earlier.

    This is my favourite time of the year, hands down!!! I have been looking forward to rocking my fav sweaters and drinking hot apple cider while sitting outside at a campsite, surrounded by beautiful fall colours. We have a campsite booked for the end of September in a very beautiful area of the province. It’s going to be a great getaway!
