It's on it's way...my favorite season of the year!!! I love all the color and warmth associated with the autumn, so much beauty and inspiration. It's like Mother Nature's version of a Mardi Gras celebration before she moves us into the colder cooler colors of winter.
This year I am also thrilled to have my new mantel to work with. It is so much more substantial and brighter that what we had before, not to mention I have a full 10 inches in width to decorate.
I wanted to keep the display on the top of the mantel simple yet colorful, so I grabbed my two treasured white swans and added a little faux bittersweet around them.
Then I filled some glass vases with pretty faux pears, kumquats and wine corks. And also added a few silver touches to give the display a little bling.
This burlap wreath I made last year using a wire hanger. To read how it was done just click here.
I purchased this beautiful basket to hold wood at our local Home Goods for only $20. The galvanized vases I picked up at Walmart for $5 each, then just filled them with some faux foliage. Those sweet pumpkins I have been collecting for years.
Are you thinking Fall yet???
Wishing you a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
