What’s not to love about September? No matter where you go there is a Summer sale. You still have time to indulge in the warm weather. And finally, you can slowly but surely prepare your home, food, and bod for the Fall (go ahead, have another cheese scone).

Read along to learn more about how to set the mood for Autumn, one of our favorite seasons at the Elletourage Office!

Fall-O-Sphere

We don’t know about you, but it has been one heck of a hot Summer here in Vancouver. We are looking forward to grabbing a throw off that couch and cuddling up to some Netflix on those cooler evenings. For a more cozy atmosphere, we recommend a faux-fur throw, some warm & woodsy scented candles, and a never-ending stash of apple cider or hot chocolate. Time to get cozy!

Autumn Wreath

The sky is the limit in terms of how “DIY” you can get this season (think of all the Halloween possibilities!). We suggest you get a little crafty this month and create your own front door Fall-inspired wreath! Desiree from The 36th Avenue shares 25 Gorgeous Handmade Fall Wreaths, each linked to a DIY tutorial. Hello, pinecones!

Cook up a Storm

Whether it’s some granola, pumpkin pie or chili that you are cooking, it’s BOUND to make your home smell good! We’re soaking up these Fall-inspired recipes from Taste Of Home – apples, caramels, and spices, Oh my!

Prepare for the Cold

So, it’s not quite cold enough to pull out the parka? Well, it’s never too early to knit a pair of mittens! Put on some relaxing tunes, sink into that couch and get stitching! Lea Elleseff from DIY Fashion walks you through a step-by-step tutorial on how to stitch a cute pair of mittens (taken from an old sweater). Bring on the evening strolls!
