Fall In Love Mantel

This year I am actually getting my Fall decorating done early.  The past few years I was lucky to get it done by the middle of October.  I have managed to get the entry and living room done so far and I will be working on the dining room today.  That leaves the kitchen, formal living room and possibly the powder room.  I like to wait until the end of September to do the porches.

So today I am sharing my fireplace mantel in the family room.  I thought it would be fun to combine glass, grape vine, ceramic and plastic pumpkins in my design.

I found this picture at HomeGoods and it works perfectly with my fireplace.  The background is burlap and the frame is natural wood with gold leaf.

I just added some garlands and fall picks to fill in around the pumpkins, candles and acorns.

The candles are all battery operated so they come on at night and give a warm glow.  Here are a few different angles of the mantel.

Here is how the whole fireplace looks.

    other the addition of the whites in there too.....sort of breaks up the
    Fall colors in a good way.........
