musings from the ladies of a day in may events


Feeling Fall

Can you believe we are almost half way through September? As we move into the Autumn months, we can’t wait to embrace the classic styles of the season – warm colors, plaid patterns, rich textures and rustic touches. We are officially ready to cozy up to fall…bring on the blankets and apple cider cocktails!

As nature’s beauty is on full display with the changing leaves, we love incorporating design elements inspired by the outdoors. Beautiful wooden tables, an earthy color palette and antler details are perfect for fall!

We can’t wait to try Jacin Fitzgerald’s Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktail recipe! Perfect for signature cocktails or an autumnal dinner party.

Wedding day attire is a great way to incorporate fall patterns. Plaid shawls are lovely for bridesmaids or you might consider a fun print for the gentleman’s ties or pocket squares!

Autumnal blooms in a rich color palette are truly breathtaking. We adore the romantic effect of garlands paired with glimmering candlelight!

From seasonal crostinis to butternut squash soup appetizers, we love bringing in the warmth of the season to the menu of a party! Don’t forget a decorative fall garnish!

Though the temperatures are cooler in the fall season, an outdoor ceremony beneath a beautiful arbor is truly special. Just be sure to provide guests with custom woolen blankets or pashminas to warm up!

Happy Fall!
