I recently got married and I could not have picked a better venue. It was absolutely perfect for me and my husband. It totally checked all of our boxes because we knew exactly what we wanted. It’s funny because some friends of ours got married about 5 weeks after us in one of the venues we looked at and almost booked. And even though they are both farm venues, they were completely different feels. That’s why it’s important to ask yourself what you really want when choosing a wedding venue. In our case, we knew we wanted something outdoors and rustic but not too fancy or too country.
So ask yourself: What do you really want?
The fall season kind of snuck up on me this year. Trying to plan a wedding in the middle of the holiday season has not left much room for actual holiday planning. But I’ve been seriously missing that holiday feeling this year so I wanted to come up with an easy craft that could take my mind off wedding stuff and decorate for fall.
I’m sure if you’re inept at crafting you’ve seen the yarn pompom craze that’s been sweeping the internet. But my favorites, are the yarn balls before they become the pompom poof.
First, I made garland inspired by this post, just something simple and cute for me.
It’s officially one of my favorite times of the year: fall!
Since we live in Florida, the fall season is basically nonexistent. The seasons don’t really change here. Sometimes, if we’re lucky, we’ll get a beautiful day with low humidity and a light breeze. Those are the days it feels like fall.
So we do other things to make it feel like fall. Like filling every room with fall decor and pumpkin scented candles. It’s okay, we’re used to it. That’s why when temperatures actually dip below 80 we jump at the chance to wear a cargo jacket and boots, maybe even a scarf.
This fall season I have been inspired to make a fall flower crown. They’re the perfect accessory for a day at the pumpkin patch or a fall festival. It’s super easy to make and you can get most of the materials at the Dollar Tree.
I know the first day of Fall isn’t until September 22nd, but by Starbucks’ calendar, it’s officially pumpkin spice season so I’m in full swing. While everyone in Florida courageously awaited the arrival of Hurricane Irma this first weekend in September, my son and I walked the bare isles of Target trying to keep our minds off what was coming. When we came upon the dollar spot (a.k.a. Bullseye’s Playground), one of our favorite sections to browse, I immediately took notice of [Read more…]
One of my favorite snacks are baked apple chips because they’re healthy, tasty, and easy to make. They can be baked simply plain or sprinkled with cinnamon, but they’re a real treat when coated with fruit sauces. Cranberry flavored apple chips make a delicious holiday snack. They’re flavorful and have an extra zing. You can also try other fruit sauces like raspberry, which is one of my favorites.
Fall can be a confusing time for a Floridian. While the rest of the country is wrapped up in their scarves and boots we’re still rocking tank tops and flip-flops. We’re lucky if the temperature drops below 85 before December. And if it does, we immediately bust out those boots, scarves, or beanies like its 40 degrees out. (But we’re sweating by 2pm because the sun came out and it’s back up to 85 – probably). It’s a weird time for us.
BUT that doesn’t mean we don’t trick ourselves into thinking it’s fall with a couple of other things – like pumpkin spice everything, apple cider, and pumpkin patches.
And I still like to enjoy all the fall styles! Dark colored clothes; berry and gold tones, and yes, boots with dresses.
These are just some of the things I’ve been enjoying this fall season:
Fall is my favorite time of year. In my house, as soon as the calendar flips to October it’s time to break out the fall decorations, hang the orange and yellow wreath on the front door, and light the pumpkin spice candles.
It’s also time for hot cups of apple cider tea, warm fuzzy blankets, and those knee-high leather boots!
