Labor Day is coming up in just a week and a half, which means that Fall is just around the corner! As a native Californian, I don't have a ton of experience with the Fall season...there are pretty much TWO seasons here - winter and summer - with some small transitions in between. For that reason, Fall has always seemed like such a beautiful, fascinating time of year from way over here on the West coast! It really is gorgeous in some parts of the country, too. My husband and I took a drive through Michigan (his home state) in the Fall a couple of years ago, and the all of the trees and colors are absolutely amazing!
Fall has SO much rustic charm innately built into it, that it was pretty easy (not to mention FUN) to pull together this week's Picks on Paper - Fall wedding favors. There really are so many adorable ideas out there! My Picks are divided into five categories - Jams, Coffee & Mulling Spices, Maple Syrup & Honey, Small Pumpkins & Pumpkin Ale, and Apples of all kinds! Caramel apples, apple pies, apple butter, sparkling and hot apple ciders...you name it! :) Some of my favorite fall wedding favors include the small burlap sacks of fragrant coffee beens (which you can actually learn how to DIY on Ruffled!), apple roasting kits including apples, caramels and sticks for roasting via SMP, individual pouches of hot apple cider mix and if you're especially talented, you can try your hand at brewing your own special pumpkin ale beer! Or just purchase them and slap a custom label on all of the bottles ;)
