Bonjour October!

October is my very favorite month out of the entire year.  This is the time when fall seems to truly set in.  I love to welcome its arrival.  I get so excited to see pumpkins everywhere!
I wanted to do something fun to celebrate the first day of fall, but unfortunately, an economics test had my best interest for a portion of the day.  As soon as that was out of the way, I remembered something I had been needing to do!  Last week at Target in the dollar section, I stumbled across these darling little pails with a scalped border.  Being scalloped, I fell for them immediately.  I decided they would be cute for holding a small fall flower arrangement.  After my econ test, I picked up a gorgeous bouquet of mixed fall flowers, some chrysanthemums, and a small spray of red roses.  Flower arranging was perfect for the first day of fall!  Have a look at how they turned out.
I just love the colors in the arrangement, and the pails were such a cute find.  I am also thrilled that I included chrysanthemums in them as they’re my birthday flower (November).
I also accessorized myself with some new baubles I had picked up form Bauble Bar and my weekend getaway this past weekend.  I felt accessorizing a fall outfit was another way to welcome in fall, right?

And to add to the fall festivities, Jaycee got a pumpkin!  
I can’t contain my excitement for fall and the fact that October is finally here!  I have more fall crafts in mind, like painting and decorating pumpkins.  Fall is such a marvelous time of the year.
How did you welcome in the first day of October?
Stay Tuned!
