Inspired By Autumn

{Mini, white pumpkins are tucked into all corners of my apartment. They like to hang out on the towel rack in my bathroom, the stack of plates in my kitchen, and on top of my vintage cake stand}

Fall is my favourite season, but in Montreal, it doesn’t last half as long as I would like – the weather likes to race towards its preferred and longest season: Winter. (Ugh..) But this year I’m really trying to make the most of my beloved Autumn, as long as it sticks around. I’ve been apple picking, hiking, baking, eating soup (and flagging recipes to make it!), and going on little strolls in the crisp night air, kicking up leaves all the way! What have you been doing to celebrate fall?

At home, I’ve been having lots of fun with festive, harvest-like, Halloween-y decorations. It’s been really comforting to create a few little autumnal touches for my humble little apartment – it makes it feel more cozy and homey. And it feels like I’m making an effort to appreciate my favourite season! In the coming weeks, I hope I’ll have a chance to snuggle up more into the fall weather, and celebrate with warm apple cider, carved pumpkins and roasted root veggies. Mmm.

I’ve been scouring Martha Stewart’s website for craft and recipe ideas for Halloween (such a fun holiday!!!), but she tends to go a bit all out. I’ve been trying to find cute little projects I can do that aren’t too complicated – does anyone have any ideas? Please let me know!

I’m really loving my cute, festive decorations. Have you decorated for autumn/Halloween? If so, what have you done! Do you know of any fun crafts or cute Halloween dessert recipes? I wish I had a bigger apartment, so I could throw a haunted house party!
