Fall Shelves and Mantel

Last spring, my good friend Heidi asked me to update her mantel to reflect a lighter, spring feel.  This month, she asked me to help her transition it over to fall.  Heidi liked the look and feel of the existing shelves but wanted to warm it up for autumn.

Here is what the left side of the shelves looked like last spring…

And here it is all decorated for fall…

And now the right side of the shelves….

And here it is all ready for fall…

I know it’s difficult to see the details and changes in the pictures above. So let’s take a closer look at what it looked like last spring…

…and now the quick, simple update for spring….

{jars – Target for $5.99 and pine cones – Michaels for $3.99 a bag}

Next I simply swapped out flowers in a vase…

{orange flowers – Pier 1 for $8 a stem}

And swapping out a vase with rocks and an orchid for a wire pumpkin and candle…

Very little changed with this decor update.  The overall placement of the items stayed the same.  We simply switched out a few spring items for fall items,  added some pumpkins and gourds, and an entirely new look was achieved.

Have you made any updates to your shelves or mantels this fall?
