Butter boards, 5 easy ways to welcome Fall into your home and more on Weekend Meanderings.
Good Saturday morning friends, it’s time for weekend meanderings with Kim and Juliet.
It’s Fall y’all! Yesterday it was 75 and last night we slept with the windows open for the first time, it was 50! Waking up to the cool crisp air, and the scent of a wood fire wafting into the house was a sure sign that Fall has arrived in my neck of the woods. I love it!
It’s been a busy week and I am ready for the weekend. I have a pile of magazines and a good book waiting for me. Not to mention that I want to bake a few loaves of pumpkin bread and some no-knead bread.
I have lots to share this week so let’s meander!
Butter Boards, 5 Easy Ways to add Fall to Your Home, an amazing cake and more on Weekend Meanderings
First there were charcuterie boards, then pancake boards, now butter boards? A butter board, for those who do not know, is essentially room temperature butter spread on a board or a platter and topped with herbs, spices, honey or whatever else you like.
This viral trend was created by Justine Doiron,
On Sept. 16, @justine_snacks, whose real name is Justine Doiron, posted a clip to her feed where she creates a butter board. In her video, Doiron spreads butter across a serving board and adds various herbs, onions, flower petals, sea salt, etc.
Since then, 7.6 million views and nearly 1 million likes on Tok Tok, 2.7 million on Instagram, with 147, 546 likes later this trend is sweeping the world and everywhere you turn is another butter board.
What do you think? The only time I eat butter is on hot homemade bread or mixed into a baked goods but this might be an interesting appetizer served with hot bread, or homemade rolls.

5 Easy Ways to Welcome Fall Into Your Home
It’s Fall y’all! To be honest, although I love Fall I am not a big Fall decorator. I don’t like Halloween, don’t get me wrong, I love the candy and treats but not the scary decorations. Here are 5 ways that I add a touch of Fall and style up my home.
1.Add pumpkins and gourds
Head the the farmers market and stock up on some baby boos, mini pumpkins, cinderella pumpkins and gourds and add them to your decor. Put them inside a cup, into dough bowls, plop some outside too.
2.Cosy throws and pillows
If you ever visit my house you will always be warm, we have cosy throws and pillows everywhere. I am partial to the look, but not always the feel of vintage tartan throws. I have been collecting them for years.
But we also have cosy cotton throws, and plush throws that the dogs like too. My favorite throw is a cashmere one that my mom gave me years ago. If I was going to purchase a new throw I would splurge for this gorgeous cashmere throw!
I place my throws in baskets, draped on chairs, rolled up at the foot of the bed so that there is always on on hand for a guest of for me. If you like tartan too, and frankly who doesn’t you will love The Tartan Blanket Co, I shared a few of my favorites in this post.
Candles are one of my favorite ways to add a touch of the season to each room. The scent and the warm glow make the room cosy and comforting.
4. Natural Elements
Seed pods, pine cones, acorns, leaves, dried corn, flowers, magnolia pods, fallen leaves, dried okra, cotton, the list goes on and on.
5. Books, Vintage Items
There are so many easy ways to add a touch of cosy and fall feels to your home and they are either already in your house or just outside the door!
