Autumn is not only one of the most beautiful times of year around the South, but it’s also one of our favorite seasons at Southern Lady. Our annual Autumn special issue was created to celebrate all things fall, and we have plenty of ideas to inspire you, from festive tablescapes to pumpkin-bedecked porches. Nothing feels cozier than a pot of soup or stew simmering on the stove, and our roundup will warm you down to your toes on a chilly eve—and leave you ready for one of our sweet finales that spans the rich flavors of the season. If you want to experience the best of fall around our region, take a cue from our city breaks and small-town escapes. Savor the turning leaves amid the mountains; soak up the energy of a bustling hotspot like Atlanta or Raleigh; enjoy one last beach retreat before winter sets in. Wherever autumn leads you, it is sure to be memorable.
