Fall Mantel

Decorating for fall has been really difficult this year.  I would take the decorations out and just stare at them, nothing…..Usually my creative juices start going right away, nope, not this time.  Could it be the weather?  I think so…It is going to be 105 on Monday!  Darn weather is interfering with my decorating!

~I went with a very simple design,  white with pops of orange~

YAY~I can actually participate in next weeks party!

  1. Hi, I love all your beautiful and inspiring ideas!! It must be the teacher in me (but “thankful” is only one l at the end:) How easy will that be to fix??? (just remove a little bumpkin:) God Bless and thank you for sharing your creative thoughts!

  2. Love the simplicity! I totally agree I’m sooo not in the mood for decorating for fall, even with the apple cider candle burning!! We went to Oak Glen today and it was almost 90 degrees. Still got some yummy apples and a few pumpkins…hoping to get the table decor finished today! Stay cool my friend!

  3. 105? Wow. Okay, that is one thing I don’t miss about living in So. Cali. I love the little white pumpkins on top of the mantel as well as the reminder to be thankful.

  4. Beautiful! The simplicity of it speaks volumes. What a great idea to write the letters directly on the pumpkins. It turned out fantastic and I’m not sure how you were able to do that with 105 degree days. I would definitely not be in the Fall spirit! Gorgeous!

  5. So glad I’m not the only one with a late start! Just finished my mantel yesterday…

    And can I also say how happy I am to see I’m not the only one who has to work around a big TV? !

  6. Wow, even with decorator’s block you pulled together a pretty fall mantle!! Your fireplace is one of my favorite parts of your house – love the stained wood and stone!

  7. 105 … seriously? Ugh. Well, you sure wouldn’t be able to tell that by the incredible beautiful Fall mantel that you’ve created inside! I absolutely love it … while you may call it simplistic, it’s sure does pack a punch. Adding the letters to the pumpkins is genious, and the pops of orange are fabulous. You always inspire!

  8. I am feeling a wee bit the same Kristin..but honestly – I love the simple look. It is not so much that you are going to be sick of it.
    It is classic and simple…love it:)

  9. It’s just lovely Kristin and I found myself going with a much more simple look on my mantel this year too. Yours is just lovely and so elegant! 🙂

  10. I love your Fall mantel! The tiny pumpkins are so cute with “Thankful” on them! I also love your hearth; it ties in so well with your mantel! I know what you mean about the heat; it doesn’t feel like Fall!

  11. I live in Cold “Canada”…and am thinking of putting our flatscreen TV over the fireplace, such as you have.

    Does the fireplace effect the TV at all? Do you have your fireplace on very much, is it gas or wood?
    Enjoyed your blog and all your ideas!

  12. Loved clicking through and finding this while pinning your other post. You see, this was posted on my first day of blogging – October 1, 2012. I love that so much. And I love reading the comments and seeing how many friends I now recognize after just 9 short {and sometimes long} months. I’m so glad we connected here online. Your home is beautiful, just like you!!

  13. Hi!
    This is beautiful! Where did you purchase your fireplace screen? I have been looking for one just like that.


    1. We actually found it when a business was moving and was selling everything out of their warehouse, wish I could be of more help.

    1. Hi Joe- I looked at the invoice and it does not give the brand name. The stone is also faux, wish I could be of better help.

  14. Does your stone have a cut out space behind of the big screen tv or is the tv mounted with bracets to the stone?
