So... it's Fall! I did take the big boys to the beach this weekend and for the first time ever I let us get sunburned (oops!)... but no matter the temps... it's time for FALL! Last time I left you all with the Summer Mantel (finally).
Been sort of a slow-but-sure process around here lately... but the mantel is decorated! I participated in my first fantel party last year and made sure I got myself up & going (seriously lacking motivation lately) to do it again this year :) YAY fun! If visiting from the linky party... big Hello :) Just try to ignore the window over the fireplace. Simply explanation... it's a direct vent gas fireplace & the builder thought this was cool I guess ;) So, here it is:
This year I was trying for more green in the mix. I love fall colors don't get me wrong... but it's not really any of the colors I use in my house. So I wanted it to blend a bit more. Plus it's still in the 90's here... so green is still a part of fall in these parts! As always, the budget was very minimal. Some of these Pinterest pins were my inspiration...
I added my Lantern steals from Lowe's... topped off above with my Teardrop Yarn Wreath.
As always, I love have stuff out for the kiddos too. It helps make the holidays more real to them... not to mention fun! (and in looking at these pics I think I need a small rug to toss over the hearth for the pot o'toys to set on. hmmmmm.....)
After Halloween I'll remove some of the decor... I'm going to try to pull off a more elegant fall mantel for November, since I HAVE to have the fun stuff for the boys up there! They love it!
Happy Fall! Come back and visit soon!
