I love the squally winds of October, watching the leaves scutter over the ground and then swirl into the sky and skip around on the wind. The rain I like less, unless I'm cosied up inside by the fire watching it through the window. When it comes to styling my home for October I can't get enough of pumpkins and the golden leaves that I steal from the trees before they're all blown away. And candles, lots of candles to give everywhere a gorgeous glow.
Snuggle up by the fire with a lovely pud and a good book.
Make a simple table centre but lying branches of eucalyptus down the middle of your table and arranging pumpkins and candles through the leaves. Eucalyptus will last for a good while without water and it smells amazing.
Cover every available surface in pumpkins and pine cones.
