As the Southern sunlight turns mellow and the leaves rustle like crisp taffeta, the magic of this splendid season is on full display, both in the world around us and in this inspiring issue. There’s ample inspiration in our annual Porches & Pumpkins feature, brimming with creative ways to display and decorate with fall’s favorite natural accents. And once you’ve got your entryway dressed up for autumn, take advantage of glorious October weather, and host a dinner amid the mountains to celebrate both the robust flavors and breathtaking views that mark this time of year. For more laidback evenings, you’ll love our lineup of hearty, homespun spins for meals as comforting as the season itself. Take a sneak peek of Southern Lady‘s October 2017 issue.
