While watching my shows, I noticed that I hadn't decorated our mantel for fall yet. What have I been thinking! Well...it was 90 degrees here on Saturday, so I was probably thinking "Where is Fall?" 90 degrees doesn't make you want to hang out at a pumpkin patch all day. But..I managed to scrounge around the house for some items to create a simple fall mantel.
A little gold, a little white and some little gourds are exactly what this mantel needed.
The gold vases were on sale last season at target. (Love the bargain end caps!) These antlers were on sale after Christmas at Tuesday Mornings. They are a good transition from fall to winter and to be honest they are displayed somewhere around here most of the year!
The little gold vases were a find while traveling this summer and I added a bit of green with some flowers and branches from my backyard. The fabulous antiqued frame is originally from my grandparents house. Love the look of rustic and modern mixed together.
You may remember these lanterns from my Thanksgiving table. They use to be black and I gave them a quick spray of my favorite gold paint! I love the glam they bring to the mantel vignette. A HomeGoods bargain from way back.
I have noticed that at this stage in life I enjoy simplicity. Little touches of fall rather than HUGE changes that take me forever to put into action.
What simple touches make you happy for Fall!?
