So Thrifty Decor Chick is having her Fall mantle party…. being so on top of the game, I am a day late but better late than never, right? I took the opportunity with the seasonal change to add some warmth and color plus a touch of Halloween to our living room fireplace. Here is how it looks as of now…
I brought in a little nature and a little color…. gourds in whites and oranges, antlers, candles, and an aqua weight my parents gave me for my birthday on the left….
On the right, more gourds and antlers and candles, a gilded pear, and balancing out the aqua with a vintage Dansk pitcher filled with Silver Dollars.
Here is a shot of the silver dollars…. I love how they catch the light.
Gourds travel along the center….
Across the mantle is the bat book page banner I made last year when I was down and out.
I added a creepy antique painting and a couple black owls to the hearth.
And in that first shot maybe you noticed a couple of other additions, like this tan hassock I scored at a flea market. Emmy loves to rest her feet on it and calls it the “brown squishy comfy”.
And on the table, I added some white glitter pumpkins and a little Halloween tree my kids like to decorate each year.
I am happy with the look of the mantle this year. It feels warm and cozy. Last year’s mantle was definitely a little creepier….
Don’t worry though… I’ve got my creepy going on in the dining room. 😉
