I usually do not decorate for Fall. Christmas is my time to go Over the Top. But this year, I really wanted to break out and add some Fall around my house.
I had such a good time and had a fabulous helper as well (Emma).
Here is what my mantel looked like before the change:
And after the change:
The wreath is definitely my favorite. I searched High and Low for the right one. I wish I could say that I had made it myself, but I did not. Maybe next year.
I kept the “B” so that there was still some turquoise in the design.
The candlesticks also remained in their spots because I needed some height on the right side.
Everything else is a new addition.
I love the Sign.
And the Pumpkins are fabulous.
The natural look of the Lantern ties in the natural wood look pieces that I have throughout the connected rooms.
I am so pleased with the turn out. Very much like the original mantel design, it still looks a bit different in the picture than it does live. But live…Love it!
While I was able to decorate the other rooms as well, I still have some things that I want to add to the Fall Design. I cannot wait to highlight some of them.
What does your Mantel look like? Have you even started decorating? Are you a DIY‘er? Are you adding on to your Design from last year? I would love to see what you have done.
Your challenge is to send me your pictures by emailing me at email@example.com. Any that you send will be highlighted here in a post with all Fall Designs. Good luck, join in and have fun!!

Great Job on the mantel! and thanks so much for the link to All Things Pumpkin!
Oh you are welcome. I looked through a few others so that I could highlight some other of our groups fall items. Loved your pumpkin post. Thanks for all your support.

Ooh, pretty gold patterned pumpkin. I love the blue, and would keep that in my mantel vignette, too!
Thanks Darla! I love the pumpkins as well. I have to keep a little of the blue since that is my pop color throughout the house and there are blue items that I can’t replace…like my wall design. Ha! I am going to post my home tour this week…finally. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
Beautiful mantle! I’d love if you’d link up to The DIY’ers! http://homecomingmn.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-diyers-31.html
Thanks Kayla! Will definitely link up! Thank you!

Thanks Tami! I appreciate it! I do love it as well. Although I am already thinking of things that I will do different next year.
LOVE the mantel. LOVE the wreath. It all came together so nicely. I am what I like to call decorating illiterate and always require the help of a more talented friend 🙂
Ha! Well I love to decorate. Thanks for the sweet comments and let me know if you need any help with anything. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
