Fall Festivities

Fall is in full swing, and we have been enjoying all the fall festivities here in Nashville! We've been jumping around to all the neighborhood fall festivals and enjoyed a visit to Cheekwood Harvest just last week. With all the fall fun going on, I was excited to team up with Draper James to host a fall backyard party with my gal pal Melissa from A Happy Healthy Heart!

We kept the menu simple, but with all the fall favorites - complete with apple cider, s'mores, and Melissa's yummy pumpkin soup! I love all things pumpkin, so this soup definitely hit the spot. It's the perfect thing to serve on a crisp fall day! You can head to Melissa's blog here to get the recipe.

Draper James gifted us some of their newest pieces to promote their fall fashion line, and Melissa and I ended up wearing the Meadow Vines Lace Top and Stripe Mohair Sweater. I picked the Mohair Sweater because I'm a sucker for a comfy sweater and stripes - especially in the fall! Draper James is Reese Witherspoon's clothing store that was started here in Nashville, and it has quickly become one of my favorite brands! I just love the southern details of all of her pieces. You can see more of our backyard fall picnic over on the Draper James Blog - we just loved teaming up with them!

I just love this time of year! Fall festivals and backyard parties with friends are things that make my heart so happy. What fall festivities have you been enjoying lately? I can't believe we are just one day away from Halloween! I'm going out to buy allll the candy today. We go through about 4 large bags at my house - our neighborhood is crazy busy with trick or treaters on Halloween night! Wishing you a happy one and thanks for reading! XO -
