Snuggly jumpers, crunchy leaves, pumpkin spice and tasty Gins! Who doesn't love Autumn?
Who can agree that it's one of the best seasons? There's a crisp autumn chill outside, the leaves turn a beautiful array of colours and it's time to get those fluffy blankets and snuggle on the sofa.
You'll have probably noticed that in the world of Instagram & Facebook that most people started welcoming the change of seasons early in September but the official start date is the 22nd, everybody has their own countdown for the start of Autumn though but for me its the return of Pumpkin Spice at Starbucks!
An Autumn Bar Cart
As the season changes, so does the display on my bar cart and I've been so excited about sharing this one with everybody!
I know I'm probably late on the trend of spray painting pumpkins but once I saw my friend Lindsay had sprayed some for her Autumn fire-place I knew I had to copy!
A tin of £2.99 spray paint and a £1 pumpkin later I had a shiny Gold Pumpkin and I am in love!
I had an idea in mind for how I wanted my cart to look and honestly, it turned out better than I could have hoped!
I knew I wanted to include a real look of nature and this pine cone garland was ideal! (I do believe you can buy these on Ebay) and to match the Gold cart and pumpkin I decided to keep some natural and spray some gold.
I also wanted to included a jar of my homemade dried Orange garnish!
One of my favourite seasonal scents that I burn from the start of autumn to the end of winter is Gingerbread and the best candle around (in my opinion) is the one from Home Bargains so I made sure it had a home on the trolley!
The gins on my trolley include Blood Orange, Sipsmith London Dry, Zing 72 and one of my favourites that I have saved for now - GINGERBREAD!
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think to my seasonal Bar Cart!

Since going on holiday for most people has been a no go this year, why not take a trip down the Ancient Spice Route instead with Opihr Gin?
A short while I go I was lucky enough to have been sent some of their new Ready To Drink Tinnies which are exclusive to Tesco and are incredible!
Much like their fantastic take on London Dry Gin these premixed cans are made up of an exotic blend of spices inducing; Cubebs from Indonesia, Tellicherry Black Pepper from India and Coriander from Morocco which when blended together with Juniper will really bring your taste buds to life!

I'm going to end with one of my favourite quotes which is very fitting for pumpkin season!
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” - Henry David Thoreau
