Fabulous Fall! A Three-Part Series

I recently asked Pink, Preppy Lilly Lover, Lily Lemontree and Housewife Bliss to participate in a three-part series dedicated to fall. I asked each contributor to give me their own personal take on my favorite season. What resulted were three fabulous and unique posts. My series kicks off with Trish's fabulous photo montage. Tomorrow I will feature Lilly Lemontree, and Housewife Bliss will roundup and complete the series on Wednesday. I hope you enjoy them all!

(And please do not forget to include your blog in my blogroll request below which disappeared when The Entertaining House experienced all those technical difficulties last week.

"Forever in Love with Fall"

Hello dear readers of The Entertaining House,

I'm Trish from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover, honored to be guest posting here on Jess' beautiful blog, and in the company of several extremely talented women.  As we kick off the first week of fall, Jess asked me to share some of my favorite images that convey a sense of all things crisp, lovely and magical about the autumn season.

My favorite things about fall include...
Cozy nights at home by the fireplace,

Smells of pumpkin cupcakes and pies,
The rich colors of chocolate and caramel in sweaters and suits, 
and the cozy, chic, cool shades of grey,

Spiced apple cider and the sweet smell of cinnamon,
A Sunday afternoon drive on a grey day,

A splash of leopard print or a colorful pair of tights,
the perfect way to jazz up any fall ensemble!

A trip to the pumpkin patch under canopies of fall foliage, and a pumpkin spice latte,
 the makings for a perfect Saturday with the family...


A little time to play in the leaves, and take in all the beauty around,

Plenty of entertaining, rooms echoing with laughter shared by friends and family...

A brisk afternoon walk with a loved one or two,
a bouquet of freshly fallen leaves,

and coming home to the heavenly smells of hot cocoa, and chocolate treats!

Wishing you each an enchanting autumn season, full of all of your favorite thinngs!
Thank you so much for having me, Jess, and for all the inspiration you share with us...

Happy Fall!
