Update to the earlier post on Decorating the Fireplace Mantels for fall. We did some cleaning and removed all of the summery goodness from the upstairs fireplace mantel. This is what we’ve got so far:
Just a small grouping on each side of the mirror. This on the left:
A small platter, pedestal candle and a vintage glass candy dish with acorns.
And this on the right:
A stack of books with a metal candle holder in green and a couple of glass containers with assorted nuts, pine cones, twine balls and wooden fruits.
Definitely need to change out the candle color but for now this is what I’ve got on hand.
For downstairs I removed the mirror and replaced it with a black and white picture. Then I added just a few decorative items, some books and of course Mr. Monkey.
I have since added some votive candles to the candelabra. They are still a work in progress but getting there. Elle pulled the fall decor out of storage so I’m sure we’ll be adding some pumpkins, pine cones and greenery eventually.
