Fall Mantel 2013


It's finally fall ya'll! That means it's time to decorate and that is what I love to do! I could not decide what I wanted to do this year. It finally came to me when I found the mirror at Hobby Lobby.  I decided to make the arrangement in front of it and add the lanterns from Pier 1 Imports from last year. Last year I left them plain, but this year I decided to dress them up with swags. I also added the lanterns on the ends and filled them with pumpkins. Do you see the owl in the arrangement? I found him at Pier 1 too and had to add him to the mantel.
 The fall colored pillow came from Kohl's.






Thanks for stopping by! I will be sharing more of my fall decorating soon.

Your mantel looks terrific and its so nice that you put some of your "famous" swags on the lanterns! Just adds the perfect touch! The new mirror is a nice change and the arrangement you've created in front of it compliments your mantel décor wonderfully. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pumpkins in the smaller cute lanterns - somehow give s hint of Halloween to me.

Beautiful, Kristen! I just love the way you did that center arrangement. Great mirror. I saw a gorgeous one the other day in Hobby Lobby. It was super big {way too big for my home} so it stayed right there in the store. They do have nice ones though.

That looks really beautiful, Kristen. I love all the snippets of Fall that you have combined there. Those lanterns look really sweet with those mini-pumpkins nestled inside them. xo Diana
