Fall has more charm and romance to offer than any other season. Between changing leaves and fun festivities, count yourself lucky if your anniversary falls during this beautiful time of year. But how can you make this year even more exciting than last? Keep reading for great tips on how to celebrate your anniversary in autumn!
Bike ride through the woods
When the temperatures start to cool, leaves begin changing colour. Their beauty is all the more striking in nature, so find the nearest park or forest, and treat yourselves to a bike ride!
Do you both love the outdoors? Why not pack your bikes in the trunk along with some camping equipment and make it into a weekend excursion? Pack a bottle of wine and some good food to enjoy around the campfire together.
Relish in autumn’s harvest theme and take a trip to an apple orchard. If you’ve never gone apple picking before, just google orchards in your area. These places let you onto their property to pick apples. Now you can stock your kitchen with fresh, hand-picked fruit that you harvested with your one and only.
Warm up at home with a few cups of hot chocolate while you bake an apple pie together. This classic autumn treat will add the perfect touch to your romantic anniversary in autumn!
Don’t forget to give her flowers! October and November offer the most beautiful colours and in-season palettes. Make your autumn anniversary complete with this simple, yet thoughtful gift.
Trip to Italy
Looking to make this year’s celebration your most romantic anniversary yet? Book a trip to Venice, Italy! Fall is the best season for a trip to Italy – the streets aren’t packed with tourists, the colours are changing, and the cool temperatures will keep you holding your partner’s hand the whole time. Plus, the area has loads of romantic scenery and tasty treats to indulge in. Here are a few tips on what to do and see for your anniversary in the Veneto region during the fall:
One of Italy’s most romantic autumn past times is picking chestnuts. Don a warm coat and boots, then head to the woods! Breath in the fresh air and pick chestnuts together. Alternatively, you can buy roasted chestnuts in town! You can find chestnut vendors out on the main street in most towns.
Do you consider yourselves a couple of foodies? Italy has loads of amazing local foods to offer, such as castagnaccio, or chestnut cake. This seasonal dessert is made with chestnut flour, raisins, and pine nuts. Buy a slice from a bakery, or even make your own!
What could be more romantic than a scenic drive through golden vineyards in the Italian countryside? Plan out your route in advance and stop by three or four wineries. Some even offer a bed and breakfast, so you can taste away without having to worry about driving.
