Today, I’m linking up my fall mantel over at Centsational Girl. I can’t wait to see all the inspiration from everyone’s fall decorating! It’s not often that we actually use our indoor fireplace but I wouldn’t trade it for anything and the best part is getting to decorate the mantel with every season!
Almost all of what you see here on our fall mantel are things that we already had.
The only thing new is the hydrangeas, because I love the color!!
|LOVE!!!! My favorite flower!|
Got those at Hobby Lobby (on sale of course!)
The fall garland at the bottom of the fireplace was a little twist this year,
and I am thrilled with how it looks!! I like that it adds color at the floor as well!
I always worry that our little girl will take off
with it or that our dogs will chew it up, but so far, so good! 😉
I wanted to be sure to add some things that were very meaningful to us,
and what could be better than some family pics!
On the other side, I added some flowers from Hobby Lobby (where else)
in a vase I already had, along with a mantel clock, and a candy dish.
I wanted to add a little height to this one so I added one our favorite and most used
books: Hiking Trails of the Smokies. Although we don’t do much hiking these days
with a toddler in tow. 🙂
The wreath on the mirror hung on our front door last year, so I decided to find
a new home for it right above the mantel.
And last, but not least, I added some votive holders that one of my best
friends gave me for a birthday gift a few years ago.
Simple, but I love the warmth and coziness of those little candles!
So, what do you think of our fall mantel? The great thing is, even if you don’t have a
mantel in your home, you can use a bookshelf, console table, just about anything to
create a cozy little fall vignette! Even add some candles to give that extra cozy feeling!
You know, it’s getting a little chilly in the evenings
around here now. Maybe we’ll light that fire up one more time!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll stay and take a look around!
