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 Mix:
• 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
• 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
• 4 teaspoons ground ginger
• 3 teaspoons ground allspice
• 1/4 teaspoon cardamom seeds (optional)
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….
Here is a 5 star recipe for the most amazing Pumpkin Spice Cake: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/pumpkin-spice-cake. I recommend a cinnamon glaze to top it off.
And just a little more inspiration…….

I will admit that the only feather to make an appearance on my wedding day, was the huge feather plume on my guest book pen. I was so in love with it. I used it until it ran out of ink. There simply weren’t a lot of tasteful options for incorporating feathers into a wedding back then. But today it’s a different story. You can find so many options, no matter what your theme is. Isn’t this flower girl headband by Caroline’s Boutique gorgeous?
And this boutonniere by Clay Bouquet Shop is very classy:
If you want to do a lot of shopping in one place Etsy is overflowing with artists who share my love of feathers. I created this treasury collection there to give you some ideas:
The pomanders are simply rich, and I love that custom guest book, but check out this unique set of wedding rings from Happy Go Licky:
But the icing on the cake, for me, was this beautiful ostrich feather cake topper that would have matched my guest book pen perfectly!
I hope this helps you find some fun ways to incorporate feathers into your special day. I hate to leave you wanting more…..so check out these items: FEATHERS!
