I like my fall mantel this year. I changed it a up a bit from last year.
If you have been reading the blog for a while you know that the husband and I took over my childhood home and have been making improvements as we go. Along with the house I also inherited some awesome items from my mom and grandmothers. I wanted to incorporate some of those into my decor this year.
The first piece I used was this silver dish propped on a small wire easel with sparkle pumpkins pouring from it. I found the sparkle pumpkins at Pier 1 and I love how the react to the camera flash. I used them in one of my hurricanes as well.
In the center of the mantel I used some clearance bird houses I got from Willow House when they were phasing out their home goods. Silly Willow House, I liked their home goods. I don't know why they decided to do away with them. Sigh.
I tied bows on them and added these hand written welcome notes that I made with scrap book paper and a metallic sharpie. I thought it turned out kind of cute.
The right side of the mantel remained the same as last year, but I incorporated gourds into my large hurricane.
I am a fan. I love sitting in the living room in the evening with the candles lit.
Another silver piece I used from my stash was this footed dish to elevate one of my pumpkins on the top of the piano.
I like how it makes the pumpkin stand up above the music stand.
Are you already decorating for the fall? Or even better do you already have some fall temperatures where you live?
Enjoy your Wednesday!!
