Ideas for the Fall Bride

I love the Fall. Of course I love the colors, and the endless social gatherings, but the food is the real reason that I look forward to this time of year. Homemade apple crisp, eggnog lattes, Irish cream, and pumpkin everything. It’s when I really get excited about baking. I learned to cook from some amazing women. And everything was made from scratch. So recently, when my mother came to a complete standstill over the fact that I didn’t have the Pumpkin Spice Mix that she needed for her recipe, I was floored. She could not figure out how to make her dessert without my help, and I loved every minute of it. For those of you who rely on the Pumpkin Spice Mix as my mother now does, here is the breakdown. And if you ever find yourself in my mother’s predicament, I hope your daughter is more understanding than I was.

Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice Mix:

•             4 tablespoons ground cinnamon

•             4 teaspoons ground nutmeg

•             4 teaspoons ground ginger

•             3 teaspoons ground allspice

•             1/4 teaspoon cardamom seeds (optional)

For all of you brides who happen to be have Pumpkin Spice Mix on hand, here are some really cute, and very creative ways you can incorporate it into your wedding.pumpkin spice cappuccino

I think these are fabulous favors.  You can place these instructions on the back of the tag: Add some spice to your life! Stir 2 tbs of cappuccino mix into 1 cup hot water/milk and enjoy!

You could personalize these bags by adding a custom tag or label with your wedding information (names and wedding date).

Okay, this one is just because I’m hungry. But these are so cute, bite size, no mess, and very Fall’ish.

Wouldn’t these be beautiful sitting in a tiered cupcake holder on your dessert table.

What? You’re drooling? Do you need a reason better than taste approval for your big day? I think not….
