10 Kitchen Accessories for Fall Fanatics [Video]
Fall is here. There are orange leaves on the ground. There are pumpkins for sale at the grocery store. Chances are, you’ve resurrected the pumpkin pie recipe from your favorite cookbook and you’re already planning what will be on your Thanksgiving menu. Most people certainly get excited about fall—the crisp chill in the air is a relief from the sweltering heat of the summer and the holiday season is within reach once Autumn arrives—but some people are absolutely obsessed with this time of year. Once August ends, you’ll find gourds on the doorstep and a Pumpkin Spice Latte in the hand of those among who just can't get enough of Autumn. If you’re one of those people, you’re probably redecorating your entire house in fall-related paraphernalia as you read this.
If you need help with completing your kitchen and dining room, though, Food & Wine has your back. Here are 10 products every fall-fanatic needs for their home.
