Warning: this post will make you hungry!
Happy Friday! I saved the best for last: Candy apples! YUM! Using different toppings, you could make the apples match your color scheme or just make them pretty neutral.
All apples from here.

I <3 fall! It is comfortably cool, has wonderful scents and tastes associated with it, and has a gorgeous color scheme. If you are planning a fall wedding for next year, here are some fabulous, slightly untraditional colors that you should consider: eggplant and goldenrod. They could be beautifully combined with reds and oranges to bring out the entire fall palate. I also just adore this flower girls dress from Watters & Watters. It is not too grown up, but plays into the fun fabric flower trend that is so popular in adult clothing.
Combine one of these sweet dresses with this pomander = Gorgeous!

My Mam-Maw (my mom’s mom) used to make the best apple jelly! Even now, it makes me think of her warm and amazing home made biscuits with the jelly on them. YUM! As I was thinking about fun fall favors that are DIY, this yummy jelly came to mind. Do you have a favorite jelly or jam? While they are slightly time consuming to make, so are most other DIY favors! Go for it! I love to make Cran-Strawberry jam each Christmas to give as gifts and I find it to be really fun!
Here are a few ways to make them your own:
I love the Spread the Love labels with the red gingham topper tied off with a little rope. From here.
I love the color of the peaches and cream jam! From here.
I love the little attached spoons! So cute! From here.

I love finding new and unique favor ideas especially when they represent the season of the year, a theme or something the couple just really loves. This week, I want to feature some fun fall favors that you can incorporate into your day!
Today is all about pie! If you like pie better than cake, serve it at your wedding! I you don’t want to serve it as the “main dessert,” you could always make a pie station with little take out boxes for your guests. This might be a great way to incorporate your family and friend’s baking skills. Have your mom make 3 of her famous apple pies and your mother-in-law make 3 of her blueberry pies and your Great Aunt Sally make you favorite chocolate chess pie. Have each them write out 20 recipe cards to put next to their pies so that your guests can take home a slice and a recipe. Oh, how I love personal favors that are actually yummy and/or useful!

Tonight is my first normal night with my Bible Study of 11th and 12th grade girls this school year. We are eating lasagna (mine is a.maz.ing) and dessert and spending a little time talking about Jesus. Although I am super tired, I am really looking forward to the time with my girls!
Now that I have told you one piece of information that you do not need to know, here is your Dressy Wednesday:
Today’s dress would be a gorgeous bridesmaid dress for just about any body type! It is from Watters and Watters and it comes in a bunch of fabulous colors. I love the formality of the fabric and the shape mixed with the flirty and fun ruffle on the right shoulder (you know my love for one shouldered items). It is the perfect mix! Happy Wednesday!
