It’s time for our list of Fargo Mom Fall Favorites! Our team of local mom writers collaborated together to share some of our favorite fall trends, recipes, and products. From yummy candles and coffee drinks to scarves and sweaters, we’ve got a list of all things fall to get you in the spirit!

Fall Flavored Coffee

Did somebody say pumpkin spice? It’s definitely pumpkin spice coffee season, but other flavors such as butterscotch, marshmallow, and pecan abound! Our fall favorites are the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew from Starbuck’s and the Butterscotch Mocha from Red River Coffee

Fall Scented Candles

So many wonderful scents come up in the fall, and it’s fun to fill our homes with the warm, inviting smells of pumpkin, vanilla, and cinnamon. Our favorites are the “Sweater Weather” candle from Do Good Adventures and this Pumpkin Patch candle

Bourbon Apple Cider

Apple cider is definitely a favorite during fall, and this Bourbon Apple Cider recipe is delicious! For a DIY version, make a pot of apple cider on the stove and simply add orange slices, cinnamon sticks, and a bourbon of your choice. Feel free to leave out the bourbon – it’s just as yummy!

Sweater Weather!

Fall means sweater weather, and we love wearing all the cozy sweaters we can this time of year! Some fall favorites include VICI and The Nines, and we also love lcoal shops Kittsona and The Black Frame for their cozy collections.

Dark Berry Nail Polish

The temps are cooling, and so is nail color! When fall hits, we love wearing a dark berry colored nail polish to go with our sweaters and scarves. Try this essie polish or this one by OPI

Dark Hair Color

Speaking of dark colors, fall is a great time to try to go dark with your hair color! Fargo Mom writer and owner of Chelsey Dannielle Salon, Chelsey Winter, gets a lot of requests for dark color this time of year. Find one that inspires you and make a salon appointment with your stylist!

Apple Crisp

Once you gather your harvest of fresh apples from one of the local orchards in the area, use them to make this delicious apple crisp. It will taste as good as it smells!

Charcuterie Board + Red Wine

While this is a year-round favorite, fall is a great time to bundle up and enjoy a fun charcuterie board and a glass of wine with your partner (or solo, if you prefer!). Pick the meats, cheeses, and fruit you like and put them on a simple board like this one to enjoy. Feeling fancier for a date night? Use this cool board with all the accessories!

Tomato Soup

Soup is definitely a fall favorite, and we love this fantastic tomato soup recipe. Use up those tomatoes you got from your neighbor, or find some fresh from one of our local farmers markets. (Hint: Don’t forget the bread!)

Slow Cooker + Recipes

Now that we have soup on the mind, let’s talk slow cookers! We love the old staple by Crockpot (plus a mini slow cooker, too!). Need a good book of recipes? This is a good one with a range of things to try!

Scarves, scarves, & more scarves!

When cool weather and fashion meet, a scarf is born! Try this chic blanket scarf to keep warm, or this warm cowl infinity scarf from local boutique Jade + Jasper.
