September in the South presents a sweet interlude between the vibrance of summer and fall’s anticipated arrival. Here at Southern Lady, we delight in everything this transitional season brings, and this issue is filled with them—from radiant and refined settings to floral arrangements brimming with jewel tones and much more. As routines resume, you’ll love our harvest-inspired lineups that include make-ahead breakfast favorites, a charming teatime spread, and a colorful cocktail party packed with robust flavors. Enjoy an escape with friends and family—or even just in a few moments lost in these pages—and join us in the creative Eastern Shore hamlet of Easton, Maryland, and on the next stop in our Grand Getaways series: the tranquil Audubon Cottages nestled in New Orleans’ lively French Quarter. If you choose to spend these days in the comfort of your home and find yourself looking for a new project, don’t miss our tips and tricks for repurposing vintage linens and Jefferson cups. As we tiptoe into autumn, we hope you’ll relish our salute to the season!
