7 DIY Date Ideas For The Best Friend Duo Who Loves Fall & All Things Extra
There are so many endearing qualities about fall. From the changing of the leaves, to the holidays embedded in those months, it's such a lovely time of year. Sitting at home is a definite no-no, and if your BFF is a fall lover too, you're most likely plotting some DIY fall date ideas together, because duh, you two work better together, anyway.
Fall dates could mean wrapping that super cute knitted scarf around your neck, putting on your adorable pair of brown combat boots, and hitting the town. It could also mean putting on that oversized sweater, finding a comfortable place on the couch, and watching a chick flick with some hot cocoa. Don't forget the marshmallows. There's so much that could be done during fall, and if you're trying to stray from the basics, doing some stuff yourself is right up your alley.
Having a fellow fall lover by your side who you also call your BFF works in your favor. The two of you will share the same excitement over elements of fall that most people might overlook. The only thing better than fall itself is planning seasonal activities with your bestie. Whether you've done these things before or not, fall is the perfect season to max out their potential.
1. Host A Chili Cook-Off
Chili is so warm and yummy, it pretty much screams fall. Even if it's just the two of you competing to find out who makes the best bowl of chili, you'll end up with a delicious result. You can even make it more fun and challenge another duo of best friends. Who will be crowned chili queen?
2. Experiment With Cider Recipes
Cider is the fall drink aside from a Pumpkin Spice Latte. It makes you feel toasty, and there is more than one flavor to try or make. If you haven't made cider before, it can be a bit intimidating to try, but it's worth a go. Besides, you and your BFF are not discouraged from anything that might be challenging.
3. Swap Homemade Baked Cookies
All of the spices of fall baked into a gooey, sweet cookie is practically heaven on earth. Don't forget about the shortbread cookies, too. Those were always the best when you would sneak them out of your grandma's circular tin can in the living room. You and your BFF could find recipes online, and exchange what you went with.
4.Have A Picnic In The Park Among The Foliage
A potluck picnic among the fall foliage is a picture-perfect scene for a fall lover. Not only are you filling your tummy, but you're surrounded by fall beauty as well.

There's just something magical about a room being dimly lit by candlelight. Watching movies surrounded by your arts and craft project will have you two feeling majorly accomplished.
6. Make A Kite And Fly It In The Crisp Fall Breeze
Yes, your childlike wonder is showing, but it's fine because fall tends to have that affect on people. Flying a kite will send your childhood nostalgia soaring, and it'll be fun to make one that you can genuinely call your own. People underestimate the free-spirited elements of flying a kite. It's almost therapeutic.
7. Paint Pine Cones With Ombre Shading For Decor
