Happy Fall!

Happy First Day of Fall! For those of us in Charlotte – how amazing is this weather?! I hope you were able to enjoy it this weekend! Erin and I got to be a part of another gorgeous wedding on Saturday. I’m still fawning over our bride’s dress, can’t wait to share pictures with you all!

Sunday was an eventful day in the Williams household! My hard working hubby was out in the yard clearing out some brush around the edges of our fence. He was swinging his machete (yes, I know, a machete) and it slipped and hit his knee. Ouch! I was inside for all of this, but heard him come in saying ‘Um, I cut myself …”. 4 hours at urgent care, 6 staples in the knee, and 1Β tetanus shot later he was okay. Needless to say, I am so thankful that it was a somewhat easy fix and he is okay now!

Feeling better now that all the needles are put away. πŸ™‚

Now, back to this incredible fall weather! It has inspired me to start thinking about fall decor for the house. Here’s some ideas I am loving!

Acorns

How adorable are these acorns? This would be really pretty on the mantel or hanging along a staircase!

Boxwood Wreath

I absolutely love boxwood wreaths! And how cute is that mini pumpkin?!

Table Setting

Okay, so this is totally one of “those” Pinterest photos – perfection in a picture. But I do love the idea of using green and white as your color scheme!

Lanterns

How pretty would this be on a front porch? Or in front of a fire place?

Thankful Placemat

This placemat is so great! Would obviously be perfect for your Thanksgiving table!

Alright, now everyone go outside and enjoy the crisp air!

Thanks for reading!

Just Call Me Suzy Homemaker

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend and are enjoying this fabulous fall weather. πŸ™‚

We moved into our house about a year ago and love our little place! Our goal has been to make it a home, so little by little we have been working on projects. Recently, I finished our bedroom and love it! So, while I am not going to be starring in my own HGTV show any time soon, I thought I would share my little renovation project with all of you!

BEFORE

I took these pictures right before I started painting. So, besides a couple of pictures and a made bed, this is pretty much what it looked like. Blah. I was desperate for some change!

So, I painted the walls a nice clean grey/blue, added some curtains, and some personal touches with pictures and a mirror. I love how it all came together!

Apologies for the iPhone quality photos, but you get the idea! So much cozier!

Kenan loves it too. πŸ™‚

If I’m brave, maybe I will share some of my other projects around the house. For now, I hope you enjoyed this one!

Thanks for reading!

Show Your Groom Some Love

Hi there! I hope everyone had a great 3-day weekend! Erin and I spent Saturday helping a sweet couple get married on their family farm – it was beautiful! Check out the view on the drive in … gorgeous!

While I love talking about some of the more feminine details of a wedding, I thought we should take a moment to appreciate our grooms! One way to spotlight your husband-to-be is to surprise him with an awesome groom’s cake. What a fun way to add a touch of him to your special day!

Fish

How cool is this fish cake?! So fun!

Golf

I love this golf cake! Plus, how good does that chocolate look? Yum!

Tool Box

This cake is so awesome – it looks so realistic! So perfect for those of you marrying handymen!

Hunting

If this cake doesn’t scream manly, I don’t know what does. I know my husband would be okay with this. πŸ™‚

Tar Heel

Obviously I had to include this one. πŸ™‚ I love the idea of incorporating your man’s favorite sports team or his alma mater!

I hope everyone has a great,Β short, week! Thanks for reading!
