Autumn is the period of spices. Think Apple Spice, Pumpkins, Ginger Spice (not Gerri from the Spice Girls!) Cinnamon and add Nutmeg in the mix to dial up on the season.

Planning your Autumn decor also points to planning for Hallowe’en (a massive occasion these days) so go grab the decoration boxes out of the garage or attic and see what you have even before you need to get decorating.
Some items just dont last the pace (even in storage) so use some of that cosy indoor time to sort through and get rid of the less ‘enthusiastic’ looking pieces.
Hallowe’en doesn’t have to mean spiders or ghouls either. Check out these super cute autumnal decorations from Gift & Art Gallery in Dundalk that are ideal for tables, mantlepieces and around your home.
