Welcome Back, October

Welcome back, October.  I missed you.

I missed your crisp weather that gives way to my best hair days all year. I missed your pumpkins, caramel apples and cider. I missed the joy of being outside on one of your glorious days (assuming there is no physical activity involved - at least that I am participating in).

Oh, and the fact that my birthday falls within your 31 days also makes me love you.

Do YOU love October as much as I do? By October we are enjoying Fall and all the loveliness that it brings. We crave warmth and coziness. I pulled out my chocolate brown velvet throw pillows and fell in love with them all over again.

So as an ode to my favorite month, I bring you a collection of beautiful autumnal floral arrangements.

Like this one from blog decor8. Simple, but a warm little touch to a desk or side table:

Or this front door arrangement.  I LOVE feathers in floral arrangements. Click here to read how Rhoda from Southern Hospitality made it:

And I couldn't bring you fab floral arrangements without calling on Martha. View the full slideshow with details here:

If the high cost of real arrangements keeps you from displaying them, go faux (and reuse it next year)!


  1. Thank you So much for the mention! I'm honored to be among all of these. Welcome to blogging, so nice to meet you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. And I hope you'll come back for many visits! Your blog looks very pretty so far.
