During certain seasonal events, Isabelle will send DIY recipes to your phone during her daily Broadcast. For example, when the cherry-blossoms are blooming (April 1st to 10th for Northern Hemisphere, October 1st to 10th for Southern Hemisphere) she will give you the Outdoor Picnic Set.
It looks like there are several recipes Isabelle can give you, so leave a comment below if you get something different!

Sometimes if there are other ongoing events overlapping with the seasonal one, Isabelle's broadcast will end up being about those instead, and as a result you won't recieve the recipe. You can also get the recipes from balloons, so if go balloon hunting if you didn't get the recipe from Isabelle.
Isabelle comes to your island after the Resident Services has been upgraded from a tent to a building. After that, Isabelle can always be found behind the right counter in Resident Services.
Once Isabelle has been unlocked, she will do the Daily Broadcasts instead of Tom Nook. The Broadcasts for any given day are available from 5 AM and will play immediately at 5 AM if you were playing when the time changed, or whenever you first play the game that day.
Isabelle will inform you of any events happening in her daily Broadcasts. Important information will be put in blue, so pay attention when blue text appears!
As mentioned above, Isabelle can give you seasonal DIY recipes during her Broadcasts.
If you progress the game up to a certain point, you can get Isabelle to tell you what your island's star rating is. If you raise your island image, you can unlock the Island Designer app and get the Golden Watering Can, so check your island image and follow Isabelle's advice to increase it.
If you want to change your Island Tune, talk to Isabelle by the counter. We have a guide on how to make Island Tunes, which you can check with the link below.
You can talk to Isabelle if you want to change your island's flag. She'll ask you for your design once you do so be sure to have your design ready! We have a guide on how to create Custom Designs to help you, just check out the link below.
If you want to change a villager's clothes or catchphrase (greeting), talk to Isabelle and choose to Discuss a Resident. If your villagers picked up an annoying phrase or you accidentally gave them some clothing you don't like, Isabelle's got your back!
