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?
