Monthly Overview

Fall is finally here. We can officially buy a pumpkin spice latte and not feel like we are jumping the gun. That being said the beginning of fall brings about a whole new round of trends! Here is what we are loving for the month of October:

Add fun pumpkins to any table to create a festive harvest table scape. Pumpkins and gourds are the perfect way to make any table scream Fall!

One of the best parts about October are the fall foods and drinks like apple cider, pumpkin bread and squash. Fall is all about warm and comforting foods and scents. Cinnamon, apples, and pumpkin everything is the way to go and a great excuse to throw a party. Whether you just want a fall get together because you have 17 pounds of apples after going apple picking  and just want to share the love with pies and crisps or you have an event and need to make something yummy, pumpkin is still in and a hot commodity. Try sprucing up a pumpkin dish with something like pumpkin ravioli with a sage, brown butter sauce or stuffed and roasted mini pumpkins. There are so many more uses for pumpkin than just in your latte!

The colors of autumn are warm and cozy to offset the cooling weather outside. Think burgundy, mustard, caramel and burnt orange for your events this month. we are also loving a sage or moss green and warmer gray colors this year!

Flannel is in so dress up a backyard fire pit with flannel blankets to end the night right. Serve some hot apple cider (with booze if you so choose) and roast marshmallows. Perfect for any age!

For October brides still looking for beauty inspiration we are loving a half up half down look with loose waves and warm natural makeup. Choose either a taupe inspired smokey eye and nude lip or go simple eyes with a little extra oomph on your lashes and a bold dark lip. Keep one feature subtle and let the other stand out.

Fall is also a perfect time for potluck events. Keep it easy on yourself and jazz up the decor while you let your guests do the cooking. Create a gorgeous space for your event with customized decor and a warm color scheme and don’t stress about cooking your own food.

 

October is one of our favorite times of the year in New England because the air is crisp and you get to rock a sweater and booties, not to mention the scarves! Fall is a great time for fashion but also one of the best times to host an event because everyone is happy and there is so much to celebrate before the stress of the holidays starts to kick in. So proudly sip on your Pumpkin Spice Latte with a blanket around you and together your friends and loved ones because October is the time to celebrate!

Of course we can’t forget that October=Halloween!
