Hi friends!! My goodness, I feel like it’s been a ghost town around here, and I want to apologize for that! We had a busy Summer and getting the kids back to school! I cannot wait to get back to writing and blogging full time again!!
Thank you for being here with me today, it’s truly such a pleasure to have you here, always <3
Today, I’m sharing with you my simple, neutral Fall mantel! As you know, I am crazy about Fall!! It’s my favorite season and I adore decorating for it!
I had a hard time deciding whether I was going to go neutral again like I did last Fall, or use color this year. Clearly I decided to opt for the neutral! Shocker (haha!). The desire to use a little color has consumed me at times, so that may be something I transition to later in the season! As of now, I couldn’t be happier with the simplicity of my Fall mantel! It’s seriously so simple, and took me just minutes to create!
You’ve heard me say in the past how much I love using dried eucalyptus! These stems are some that I already had from previous arrangements! I innocently added them to the sides and worked around them! For design purposes, I always mirror my sides as much as possible. Next, I added my beloved mercury glass votives and candlesticks, books and baskets for texture! Oh, and white pumpkins!! You can never have enough white pumpkins <3
It’s effortlessly beautiful, warm and inviting! I literally smile every time I walk in the room! I will be adding little mementos here and there and sharing with you via social media, I hope that you are following along!
One of my favorite things about this mantel design, is that I am using pieces that I use and love year around! The other day, I went into the basement to grab totes full of my Fall decor, and decided to use very few items from them. Not because I don’t love them anymore, but my style has changed! And, I’m ok with that! I will be adding those items to my local community site to sell! Someone else will get to love them and bring them to life again!
Thank you for stopping by and hanging out with me for a bit today! Have a wonderful, blessed day!
