As much as I love Summer it has been a nice change to see leaves and pumpkins scattered along the mantel. I like to keep it simple in a sense. Everything you see up there I just pulled from around the house except for the pumpkins which I purchased for around five bucks. It’s fun to see how I reused a lot of the same accessories from last year’s Fall mantel but achieved a completely different look.
Fall decor doesn’t have to come from the seasonal aisle. Instead look around your house for objects that are the colors you are wanting to use. Color is so powerful and pulling together the right colors really sets the tone of what you are going for.
Our living room can be dark at times so I used white accessories and pumpkins to highlight different areas of the mantel. The gold on the mirror frame and painted canvas work well with the warm colors found in the leaves.
The mums and greenery are left over from last year when I made a monogramed letter for our front door. See it really does pay to keep your scraps!
I just pulled vases from around the house. Like the McCarty Pottery vase and glazed ceramic vase above. Both have good earthy colors that again work well with the simple leaf garland that I used as my main source of color.
The candle holder adds height and balances the vases on the other side but it also reminds me of a bare leafed tree. Although, I am not sure what it was reminding me of when I used it for our Spring mantel.
The wall plaque normally hangs in our kitchen but it sort of has a Thanksgiving feel to it so I thought it would be appropriate for the Fall. Plus, it is just such a great reminder of our commitment to God.
Here’s a few more pics because apparently I can be pretty indecisive when deciding which pictures to use.
I’ll have to let you know how the above recipes turn in out in a Pinning and Dining post.
