Fall Mantel

Northwest weather is typically quite pleasant in September.  But it’s been plain hot here lately. {Well, hot for the northwest!}  The heat has made it challenging  to feel like decorating for fall!  But I didn’t think my starfish and driftwood decor was appropriate anymore since we are in full fall routine here.   So a few days ago, I dug out some of my fall decorations.

This is what I came up with.  It’s simple and uncluttered. And it feels a bit unfinished, but at least I’m headed the right direction!

I picked up some pumpkins and mums at the grocery store.

My ferns were relocated in front of the fireplace.  And my fall burlap banner was hung up.

Bittersweet was added to a watering can…

…and the mantel is complete {for now}.

  1. I love this tradition you have to adapt your decoration to seasons.
    In france, we don’t do that and its much more sad. Most of all when bad days came.
    You’ve got a beautiful mantel.

  2. I think this looks great, and so traditionally autumn. My absolute favorite part is the fall burlap banner. So adorable and rustic. Nice work!

    • Thank you so much!! The banner is from an old coffee sack that I had on hand. A little paint, stencil and twine and the banner was complete!!

      Thanks for reading!

  3. I like it! Clean, simple and full of FALL! Love the banner!

  4. Your mantel is beautiful! I love the two squares that are hung on the wall as the backdrop!

  5. Lovely and simple, clean, neat, pretty… 🙂

  6. Your mantel is simple and lovely, just the way I like it ~ and the way I do mine too!
    Happy Fall!
