Fall Mantel

In addition to the amazing clothes of the season, fall provides plenty of opportunities for dressing up the house. I’ve already showed you guys my fall tablescape last week, but I’ve been working on other decorations as well. One of my favorites is our fall mantel 🙂The star of the show is definitely this cute little ceramic owl that I got on clearance at HomeGoods a few weeks ago. He’s just so adorable! Since our fireplace is brick, I had to add a splash of color because the oranges, reds and browns kind of blend in. The teal of the frame is the perfect splash I needed 🙂The little pumpkin is actually from the Dollar Store, such a cute find and addition.And this little vase was made by my grandmother. The picture is one of my favorite wedding photos and also adds even more color to the mantel. I love decorating for the seasons and just doing this little bit for the fall has got me all excited for Christmas! (Too soon??)

Have you decorated for fall? Does it make you excited for the holidays or is that just me?

  4. We almost bought that exact same owl 2 weeks ago. I might have to go back and see if they still have one. For my birthday, my Hubby bought me the white pumpkin and the ORB pumpkin from HomeGoods that I was loving and posted about back in August.

  5. Love all those touches…it looks so fall-y. And yes, decorating for autumn gets me all excited for the holidays that are a couple months away. 🙂

  6. I have that exact same owl as well as his buddy in blue and black. I found them at TJ Maxx last year, but didn’t buy the other two color schemes they had. Now I’m going to have to run to Home Goods to see if they have them there. We had a party last Saturday and everybody commented on how cute they were.

  7. Love the mantel set against the brick wall! You’re right; the frame adds just the perfect pop of color. And I’m in love with your little owl! I might have to start collecting owls, at this rate – I just added one to my fall pianoscape. 🙂
