Falling For These Autumn Puzzles

A lot of people have a favourite season and autumn is mine. I love the crisp fresh air, the smell of rain, the sounds of car tires on wet pavement, the beautiful pumpkin patches. It's such a lovely season and if you're a pumpkin spice latte kind of person, you know this is one of your favourite seasons too!

I think the major drawback to fall for most people is they're sad that we lose the long summer nights with all that light. As the days darken, sitting on the deck sipping iced tea in the afternoon becomes a distant memory. 

So what is one to do? Jigsaw puzzles, of course! Bring the outdoors inside your home!  Make your favourite hot drink, sit down, start sorting, and enjoy falling in love with your autumn puzzle pick.

If you're new to puzzles, we recommend starting with a lower piece count to get you familiar with finding pieces by shapes and colours. Fall Feast by artist Jane Maday is a wonderful Easy Handling 275 piece puzzle. This piece count has extra large puzzle pieces so you can easily see a lot of the detail in one puzzle piece. The Easy Handling puzzles include a linen print reference poster, so you could even find a partner to share in building this puzzle with you OR since you have the poster, that means both box lids could be used as sorting trays!
If you're looking for more of a challenge, we have a lot of wonderful fall themed 500 and 1000 piece puzzles.  Some of them are bright and cheerful autumn colours, while others have that misty, moody fall feel.  We recommend having both on hand to suit whatever mood you're in whenever you're ready to dig into a puzzle and a cup of tea.

Apple Pie Kitchen is a Cobble Hill Creation puzzle, which means we either commissioned the art work on it solely for our use or our Creative Team licensed images from an artist and then created our own image using various pieces of work. This one in particular was painted for us and we love the vintage feel of the kitchen and the "smell" of fall apples being baked into a pie!

In 2018, we switched over to the new box design that includes posters and at the same time, we also changed the finished puzzle size for the 500 piece puzzles. They used to assemble at 18" x 24", but now the finished size is 19.25" x 26.625", which means each piece is a bit larger. So, if you need puzzle pieces to be a little bigger so you can grip them more easily or if you just like having more detail per piece, then our new 500 piece puzzle size is going to be perfect for you.

The 1000 piece category has a popular fall puzzle called Autumn Bouquet. It's by artist Greg Giordano who is popular for his bird images.  The bright reds and oranges really make this puzzle pop, but those cute little pumpkins are what sells it as a wonderful autumn puzzle.

Another great puzzle with a lot of autumn colours is New Day by artist Mark Keathley. This puzzle has a lot of foliage, so it will be more challenging, whereas Autumn Bouquet puzzle can be sorted into flowers, fence, and ground. But it's a gorgeous puzzle when finished! And it's always a great new day in autumn!
