~ Fall Mantel~

Happy Monday!! Hope you had a great weekend!!

I've had some fun putting a few fall accents around the house; and today, I thought I would share my Fall mantel.

I didn't really have a plan. I just played with the things that I already had in my bins.
The blue and white candlesticks were a $3.99 thrift find. 

The lanterns are a staple on my mantel for most of the year. I just added a few picks to bring in some fall color. I'm also loving all of the metallic pumpkins this year; so, I added a few of those, as well.

The green hydrangeas are perfect for early fall.

 A scattering of pumpkins and leaves on the hearth completes my vignette.

And, that's my fall mantel! 

Have you started decorating for fall? 
It's still pretty warm here; so, I haven't bought any real pumpkins or mums for outside just yet.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you're having a great day!



  1. This turned out beautiful! I love all the colors and the pumpkins scattered around. We haven't put any outside yet either. It's going to be in the 80s most of the week again.

  2. I have so enjoyed all your fall decorating but the only thing I've actually been inspired to do is put a fall arrangement on my dining table. I think I will live my fall decorating vicariously through yours. I usually get an assortment of decorative real pumpkins while in Amish country but it was too hot even up there.

  3. You have such an eye for balance and detail, such a beautiful mantle display Shenita. You are making me want to re-work mine. :) Thanks for sharing, I love it.

  4. This is my first time over here! What a beautiful home you have and I love this mantel! Nance from Instagram

  5. Shenita,
    Lovely fall mantel, dear friend!
    I love the white and copper hued pumpkins!
    I shy away from metallic accessories, as I feel they 'clash' with my heirloom silver.
    However, I'm swooning over the PoPs of copper this Season!

  7. Very pretty Shenita! Isn't it fun to go through the bins are revisit what you have and put it out in a new way!

  12. This is so pretty, Shenita. Starting with the lanterns was the right thing to do. I just love it when hydrangeas and pumpkins hang out together. :)
