Add your own pumpkin spice flavoring to your morning coffee or cocoa using readily available coffee syrups. Start weekend mornings with pumpkin spice muffins or pancakes. And plus up dinners with pumpkin spice soup as an appetizer and pumpkin spice cheesecake for dessert.

See and Feel the Pumpkin Spice

And finally, set your sights on pumpkin spice as a decorating theme for fall by incorporating pumpkins into your door wreath or mantle greenery. Carve out a pumpkin and use it as a vase for fresh fall flowers. Position a basket of mini pumpkins and cinnamon sticks on your coffee table or dining room table as a centerpiece.
