I tend to be a bit wordy in these Living Spotlights, but today I’m just going to cut to the chase. Why? Because we’ve got a lot of fun ground to cover with a fall-inspired spin. So let’s put a quick “pause” on wedding world, and shift our eyes to all things Living, shall we?

The only thing that’s (maybe) more adorable than a DIY hot air balloon or sushi costume, is this little duo of pastry chef and cake. It’s the perfect trick-or-treat attire for pint sized besties, and bonus: frosting bites required along the way!

Floral crowns are sort of the “next big thing.” We’re seeing them embraced by brides and ‘maids alike, but you certainly don’t need a formal occasion to rock these blooming beauts. Whipping up a crown is as easy as 1, 2, 3, and Kristin Ess is going to show you how to do it!

The lovely Sarah Yates never ceases to amaze us. And this fall accessory round-up? No exception. Think booties and gloves and all your cold weather “musts” stepped up a notch in style.

I love a good pumpkin DIY. Mostly because they’re the perfect canvas for all kinds of fun. So whether it’s giving them a pretty touch of shimmer or carving in some fancy pants calligraphy, they’re a million and one ways to make these festive little pretties feel all your own.
