Orange, Blue and White Fall Mantel

 Recently I've seen several examples of blue and white porcelain pieces being used with fall decorating.  I guess I was looking for something different this year so I gathered the only two pieces I have and 
gave it a try.
(For those that are new to my blog - we are going to be painting the room soon and have been sampling colors.  It looks pretty weird right now, but believe me it's not staying this way! It will be the color on the right)

These are a couple of Bombay pieces. 
I shopped my house and as you can see I used a variety of pumpkins, glittery acorns, woven deco balls and silk leaves.

I started with a grape vine garland of leaves, added some picks, and some random loose leaves.

 The gold pumpkin seemed to fit right in.  I elevated it a tad so it would show up better.

 The garland was woven in an S shape along the mantel and the fall picks were poked in in various spots to give it more body.

I have to say this is a first for me.  
The blue catches the eye that's for sure!

 I have to pretend the walls are painted.  I don't see us getting this done before November right now because of a couple of trips we will soon be making.  

The sum of my living room for fall.
I will be joining

  5. Liz, your mantel is lovely. I've seen a lot of blue and white out there, used for fall decor. I think I saw some on Nell Hill's blog, as well. I think it's a pretty contrast with the orange. Can't wait to see your room all painted out!

  6. Liz, You did a beautiful job decorating the mantle, and I love the addition of the blue. Thanks for visiting, talk soon.

  13. You've done a beautiful job of fall decorating in your living room. I especially love what you did on the coffee table with the big pumpkin in the center. The blue on the mantle looks great and I will have to try using it in my schemes. I have never thought of it before and it looks so nice. I like blue and white.

  14. You have done such a beautiful job with all your fall decorating and this mantle is perfect. Love the touches of pumpkins and acorns. Love acorns!!


  15. You have such a beautiful house. I love you fall decorations. I am always in awe of people who can decorate their houses to celebrate seasons and holidays and make it look like it came off a catalog. Beautiful mantel! Good luck with the painting.

  17. Hi Liz - Your mantle is beautiful! The orange and blue look wonderful together. I love the painting too! I didn't even notice the paint samples until you mentioned it. The mantle is so eye-catching with the color variations and touches of gold.


  18. Liz, your home is so beautiful. I love the grape vine garland and pops of blue and orange color. I hope we'll see your new tablecloth on the blog - I think blue flowers would look great with it. I was hoping to find blue hydrangeas for mine but no such luck!

  19. The blue and white is so pretty with the orange, Liz! Your mantel is beautiful.

  20. Oh I love this! How pretty! You did a great job!
