As you already know, the mantle and I have a small fight every time it is time to decorate it. :)
I know you can't really tell in the pictures, but it is very high.
Just the thought of having to use the ladder it is enough for me to think about it twice any time
I want to make changes.
You see, the ladder and I are not good friends at all and I have actually fallen out of it a couple of times in the last few years LOL, sooo, after several hours of up and down with my arms full of pumpkins and breakable items,
(praying the whole time), I am now finished decorating our mantle for Fall and I am not changing a thing! LOL
As you can see, I did not buy anything new, but used all the items I have collected in the last few years.
I did start by decorating the center to which I added a small stand with a ceramic pumpkin and a Fall garland.
On each side I added my old urns and the faux leaves I bought at Kirklands several years ago.
On the left side they got paired with an old set of candle holders and a leaf plate.
On the other end you will find the same plate and a glass container than during the Summer time was full of sea shells and now holds pumpkins and pine cones.
The hearth is simple, just a pillow, another ceramic pumpkin and the harvest frame I purchased last year.
And that is it!
I know it is simple. but I think just enough to make the family room feel warm and cozy.
Have a wonderful weekend!
