Fall Mantel with a Touch of Blue

My Fall mantel is finally finished. I had my last mantel up for 6 weeks. I think that is the longest ever. I like to change it monthly, so it was about time.

I went with pretty traditional Fall colors but had to add a couple touches of blue. The little squirrel on the acorn and orange pumpkin are from Hobby Lobby. I’ve had the blue bottle for years.

The frame remained on the mantel from the last mantel scape. I scrounged everything else from around my house. I love the little bit of blue on the cover of the book. The frame adds another layer to the mantel and the twiggy pumpkin adds great texture.

The candlestick adds a little bit of shine and the candle adds a bit of pattern. The little pumpkin adds a touch of nature. I had all these items on hand.

I added a large glass bottle and 3 different colored pumpkins to the hearth. And more texture with another branchy pumpkin.

I also hung a leafy wreath from the shutters to add more Fall color and texture.

I’m ready for Fall, are you?

    It’s beautiful! I can’t wait to decorate for fall but it’s still 100 degrees here. 🙁 I just can’t bring myself to do it when it is still so dang hot!

    Do you have a shelf or table top you could decorate? I have a shelf in the entry that I pretend is a mantel and decorate it for the seasons and holidays also.

    I love your fall mantel. I am a huge fan of blue and love how you added it to your decor. The squirrel is adorable. I am visiting from Centsational Girl. I would love for you to come and link up to my Fall into Fall party that opens tonight at 8pm EST. Hope to see you there.

    Gorgeous mantel! I don’t have a mantel, but I decorate the top shelf of my computer desk (which sits between the living and dining rooms, as well as my “bookshelves” that are on one wall of the dining room. I am really loving the blue with the fall colors this year. Totally crushing on your shiny candlestick, as well as your orange and green pumpkins!
