On the Mantle Monday - Fall Mantle

Hi Everyone!

Well, it's been a great summer and start to the Fall season, but unfortunately NONE of it included   I just can't believe how fast the months flew by and that it's already a month into Autumn!!!

To celebrate, I'd like to share with you my FALL MANTLE

I absolutely love fall!   I love the cooler weather after a hot summer, I love that many of my loved ones have Birthdays in the fall, and I LOVE THE COLORS!!!   Fall is such a fun time to decorate and I have a huge bin designated for my fall decor!   I just love it!!!

For my fall mantle, I FINALLY got my mirror up (not HUNG up, but just standing up over the  

On each end is a white IKEA pillar candleholder with some small pumpkin ceramics on them.  My hope is to switch those out for a couple real pumpkins soon.

Next to those are some glass cylinders with some fall ornaments that I got on major clearance after the Holidays a few years ago, and next to THOSE are some festive fall pumpkins, both thrift store finds!

On either side of the fireplace are these tall white "vases" with some fall flowers.  These vases were from Kirklands, but were not white, so I got them for a good deal and then spray painted them white.  They came out pretty good!

I continued the "fall florals" on our coffee table with a nice bouquet I found at Goodwill last year!   The plain glass vase didn't look the best with all the fake stems so I wrapped some sparkly fall garland around them loosely, and also added some to the "tray" on the table (which is actually an old Mirror from Goodwill, where the glass was sliding around.   It soon became a nice tray instead of hanging on the wall!  lol

I always enjoy spending time in this room, but even more so in the fall season, because the colors with the white just look so pretty to me!   I love it!!!  

Also, as an added bonus, I wanted to show you my fall entry table.   Every season I dress up these pillar candle holders for the season.   Here's what I came up with for the fall.  The ribbons and the little jewel pendants were all from Joann Fabrics.  I simply wrapped the ribbons around and secured them with hot glue.  Then I hot glued the little pendants in the middle of the smaller ribbon.   I think it adds a nice elegant touch, and it makes a nice entryway look. 



I have since traded out that orange pumpkin (which didn't seem to fit for me) for a white leaf bowl, and have replaced the candles in the glass cylinders with CANDY!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed today's ON THE MANTLE MONDAY!   Have a great day, and HAPPY FALL!!!!   =D
