I’ve always had a thing for copper, when given the choice I’ll always pick it over silver or gold. When Oriental Trading Company reached out for a Thanksgiving collaboration I was immediately drawn to the sparkly copper items. I thought an autumn table candle display was a great time to celebrate my love of copper.
Something about cold and rainy autumn days makes me want to hole up and create something. It’s the time of year when I dig out the needle craft supplies I stash away in favor of gardening gloves and hand weeders from spring to summer. I wanted to make something new so I drew up a set of autumn punch needle patterns.
You can’t celebrate fall without at least a dozen pumpkin treats. Lucky for you that’s what I’ve collected for you today. I’ve rounded up 12 seasonal pumpkin cakes and breads. I even snuck in a brownie recipe at the end, it had ‘Double Chocolate’ in the title, what else was I supposed to do?
Don’t forget to pin the collage at the top so you know where to find all these awesome recipes in one place!
I’m almost certain that Aldi’s is pumpkin spice heaven. They have managed to sneak that ubiquitous fall flavor into everything!

My fridge is still full of the fall beer that led to my pumpkin gingerbread.
I have a serious problem not buying anything with the word fall on it. Honestly, if Tampax had a fall variety pack I’d buy
enough to last me a year a pack or two. That’s how I found myself the proud owner of the Sam Adams Fall Variety Pack. I’m not an adventurous beer drinking, I pretty much only drink wheat beer. But the case said ‘fall’ and ‘pumpkin’ so I really had no choice and I brought it home. Knowing full well I won’t drink more than 4 bottles from the entire freaking case! Well done Sam Adams… My solution was to turn the undrinkable (to me) bottles into something I can enjoy. First up is my rendition of the Gramercy Tavern Gingerbread recipe made fall appropriate with a few modifications and the addition of pumpkin (of course!) for a spicy, dense pumpkin gingerbread.
