Fall Has Finally Fallen Here {Fall Mantel 2013}

This weekend the weather finally felt like fall, and I enjoyed the cool temps so much!!  It also, finally put me in the mood to pull out a few fall decorations. Combining a few things from last year with a few other finds from around the house, and of course my newly painted gold pine cones…here is my mantel for the fall.  🙂

I took the feather out of my burlap wreath and added some fall foliage and flowers (still really loving my chevron backdrop).
The other fall foliage and flower arrangement is something I did last year for somewhere else, but I decided to plop that on the mantel this year.  The platter and Faith are things from other parts of the house that I pulled in.  I wanted to break up the orange, yellow, white, cream, and brown colors, so I decided to use my turquoise bowl I bought when I was thrifting last month.
I think it is the perfect place for my giant gold pine cone don’t you?
The candles sticks I’ve had for years, they were the right color and height, so they got to join the party too. Those cute burlap pumpkins I made last year, and the books – a bible and some small hymn books – belonged to Van’s grandma.  I love the boost it brings to my pumpkin, but I also love the history they add.  

So, there it is friends, the only fall decorating I have done so far.  

How are you doing on your fall decorating – not started, done, not going to do it???

I love fall.  What’s your favorite season?

Blessings to you and yours!!
