FALL MANTLE 2017

Hello friends.
I hope your week is going well.

In the last couple of weeks I have been slowly decorating our home for Fall. It took me a while to get the bins down from storage and I have been selecting here and there what I wanted to use this season.
It is amazing how much Fall decor you can collect through the years! :)

I have been taking my time, since our temperatures are still in the very high 90's and it is hard to get into the
 Fall decorating mood.

My kitchen and family room are almost done, so today I am sharing with you our Fall decorated mantle.
It is very simple since this year I decided not to go overboard. :)






I mostly used items I already had to decorate our mantle for Fall. The only things I purchased new were the "Thankful" wood letters at Kirklands and the two orange rope pumpkins at Ross. 




On each end of the mantle I placed the old glass jars from Homegoods with some leaf branches and the lanterns I bought at Kirklands years ago.
I left our homemade shutters on the mantle to create a backdrop for the lanterns.






On the hearth you will find the the sign I purchase last year, my old orange pillow and a metal container 
filled with acorns. All items I already had.



And next to the fireplace I have the Fall subway frame I made a long time ago


And that is it! Quite simple, but enough to give the family room a cozier feeling for the new Fall season.




I have been working on the kitchen decor and also making a few things for the front porch, so I will share those 
as soon as I am finished.
Meanwhile, have a wonderful day and I will see you all soon. 
Take care!

  1. Your mantle is simply beautiful! I have those 'thankful' letters, too. Mine is on my built-in shelves. Yours look perfect with the pumpkins on either side. I can't wait to see the rest of your Fall decor!

    1. Thank you, Zenda! I really liked the letters when I saw them and they were 25% off, so I couldn't leave them behind. Take care! Maria

  2. Very cozy, Maria! I love that knitted pumpkin. I'm like you--after Christmas, I think I have more fall decorations than anything. I haven't yet sorted through, I want to choose only bit to make a simple decor. Ha! We'll see!

    1. Hi Jane! Thank you! It is crazy how much you can collect from previous years. I am just using just some fall pieces here and there around the house, just mainly decorating our living areas and the front porch. It is so much work! LOL

  3. Very lovely, Maria. It is tasteful, and the focus is on "thankful", as it should be. Blessings to you.

    1. Thank you Kim! The pumpkins were a great find at Ross. They were only $5.00 each so I figured I could use them somewhere around the house.

  5. Your mantel would look gorgeous without a single thing on it, but you've truly brought it to life with your decor choices. The rope pumpkins are the perfect pop of color!

    It feels like a cool-down here because it's finally below 100*! It certainly feels like Fall inside, though!

    Hugs,
    Carol

    1. Hi Carol! Thank you so much! It felt like Fall here for a few days with morning temps in the 70's, but it didn't last long. Take care dear friend. xxx

  6. I love your mantle. One day I hope we can have one in our next house. The sign is so pretty and I like the words on it.

    1. Thank you Betty! We didn't have a mantle/fireplace before either. My husband served in the military and we lived in 14 different homes during his career and only one of them had a mantle that I could decorate. And now that I have one, I have the hardest time decorating it. LOL Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Hi Lisa. Thank you! Just a few items here and there. It is hard to decorate for Fall in this heat. :)

  9. Your mantel looks wonderful! I like its simplicity and that the thankful sign takes centerstage. I also admire the leaves in the vases on each end - looks great!
