I’m not going to lie… I decorated this mantel mid August! Once the kids were back in school, I found myself with a little more down-time and decided it get a head start on my decorating! I have to say, I’m glad that I did. We are super busy preparing for barn shows we have coming up, AND if you didn’t see via Instagram or Facebook, our barn was delivered last week so we are busy working on that anytime we can! I will share more info about our storefront in another post soon!
I wanted to keep my early Fall mantel, simple at first! It’s always easy to go back and add little pumpkins, fresh greenery and such. As you know, I love using fresh greenery, but I found some beautiful, faux stems that don’t look “fake”. I don’t like the ones that you look at and automatically know they’re not real. So, I added those cute little stems to this mantel design.
And as always, my trusty go-to antique books never disappoint! They are the easiest way to add instant character to my designs. Throw in some candles and tea lights and you’re good to go!
This sweet mantel design will be getting a face-lift soon with some sweet baby boo pumpkins!
It was a pleasure to have you here today!
See you next time 🙂
