It’s Fall Y’all – Fall Mantel
I’m always up for a little fall mantel-scaping – so when I saw the party at Centsational Girl, I snapped a couple pictures. I try to keep my mantel simple, so I use cream and brown all year round so I can just pop a couple seasonal decorations in when I want to.
I love stoneware and have an affinity for antique Red Wing – notice the large crocks, bean pot on the mantel, and the small cream vase on the left.
Large candlesticks are always a classic mantel piece – I added the fake cat tails, pumpkin candles, and faux leaves under a couple pieces to ‘fall’ it up.
See a theme here? More cream and brown – it’s a great base to build on, especially for accessory pieces. I like an asymmetrical mantel, so I try to keep heights similar but I use a lot of different pieces to keep it fun and not too serious (enter turtle ‘frog’).
So….are you joining in on the Autumn Party?
Cute display! Totally off topic…LOVE that mirror frame!

Thanks Joy! It’s an antique frame that I had a beveled edge mirror put into – it’s one of my favorite pieces!

Becky, this is gorgeous! I love the simplicity of it. I got so tired of the clutter in my house, but still wanted my home to look welcoming and decorated! This is absolutely the best of both worlds!

That looks amazing! Unfortunately, my husband hung our TV way too low to do anything like this!!

The pussywillows and cattails are just fantastic! Love it. Very subtle, but definitely fall.
