Fall is in the Air...

Although I live in Florida, the state of eternal heat and humidity, I can definitely tell that fall is in the air.  Our weather has been cooler (80 instead of 95, with 50s and 60s at night), Halloween decorations are adorning homes in our neighborhood, Guavaween (Tampa's Halloween festival) is weeks away, etc.  I thought I would celebrate the coming of Fall, and all things related to Fall, with this blog post.  I have a fall-themed party to present as well as a harvest-party inspiration collage that I put together.

My cousin and creative director, Melissa, lives on Long Island, NY, where I truly believe that celebrations have developed into an art form.

This weekend, she went to a fall-themed birthday/anniversary party that was so fabulous, I was jealous I could not attend (as I live in a completely different state, 1000 miles away).  There was a decadent cocktail hour, a three course meal, a tiered cake, a dessert spread, and dancing all night long (to the actual band the Duprees, nonetheless!).  These pictures provide just a taste of this fabulous fall event:

Fall also inspired me to put together this inspiration collage which reminds me of harvest-time, Halloween, and Thanksgiving goodness all combined into one.  I hope this collage inspires you to plan such a warm and festive party!
