“Septem­ber is by far one my fa­vorite months of the year,” says Melissa D’Ag­nese, FIRST se­nior ed­i­tor. “Be­tween the sunny, breezy days and cooler nights, the tem­per­a­tures are per­fect—and I can fi­nally en­joy my morn­ing cup of cof­fee on the pa­tio with­out swel­ter­ing. To kick off my days on an even hap­pier note, I like styling bright blooms into mini mug bou­quets. To do: I snip a large hand­ful of early fall beau­ties (like chrysan­the­mums, asters, leaves and ber­ries). Then I in­sert the stems, one by one, into a wa­ter-filled cof­fee mug. It’s a sim­ple yet stun­ning way to show­case the sea­son while also bright­en­ing the table and my mood!”
