I love fall, don’t you? I especially love all the colors and smells of fall. When you look outside and see the bright colors of gold, orange and red leaves against a Carolina blue sky, it’s hard not to be inspired to create and decorate your home. Oh, the smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and maple syrup in fresh baked goods. Those wonderful smells permeating your home from pumpkin, sweet potato and apple pies. The flavors from pumpkin scones, muffins and sweet bread cannot be missed either.
Did I mention the fall coffee flavors? Let me tell you, I love tea also, but when all of those wonderful special blends of coffee appear in the coffee shops and grocery stores, I believe I am experiencing a little bit of heaven. Pumpkin Spice, Maple Bourbon and Maple Pecan just to name a few. However, my favorite fall flavor is Hot Butter Rum. I am like a child in the candy shop ready to buy my first bag of this delicious treat! The taste of warm butter and rum with a touch of caramelized sugar and vanilla cream…oh my…it just warms the soul. Add a pumpkin scone, sit back and enjoy.
Believe it or not, this is what inspired this month’s featured wreath. It is created with the colors of warm browns, cream, variegated purple florals, birch branches and dark foliage. The focal point…a steaming cup of coffee made of metal. In my mind’s eye, it is a steaming cup of hot butter rum coffee. You will find this small pretty wreath with extra pictures to view in my Etsy shop. The link is below for your convenience.
