We always get a little excited when the seasons change – new takes on event design, more wedding trends to try out, and the best part… lots of beautiful seasonal blooms. In celebration of all the lovely fall events we’ve seen so far, we’ve put together a few (okay, more than a few) of our fave autumn bouquets. From ferns to feathers to fall foliage… we must say, these arrangements are pretty genius. Click through the slideshow to see them all! xo

We’re feeling a bit crafty this morning, so how about we start the day off with a little DIY? We just shared a super cute DIY bridesmaid glam gift idea over at LaurenConrad.com, but honestly, why stop at one?

See the how-to below to show your ‘maids how much you appreciate them with the gift of relaxation. Say it with us now: Ahhh.

As for scents, some lovely combinations to make are…

5 drops rose + 3 drops sandalwood

5 drops jasmine + 2 drops clove + 3 drops vanilla

2 drops lavender + 2 drops chamomile + 2 drops cardamom + 1 drop cedarwood + 3 drops geranium

2 drops orange + 3 drops lavender + 2 drops cedarwood + 2 drops ylang ylang + 2 drops bergamot

Then, put the aromatherapy oil and jojoba in a pretty rollerball perfume container.
