Autumn Touches On The Mantel

Here's my autumn on the mantel for this year!  
Keeping it simple yet a bit elegant.

 I used the cloche that has been showing up in various spots in my living room and stuffed it with some gourds and velvet pumpkins as well as dried berries and leaves.   I used a magnolia leaf candle ring I picked up last year at Pier 1 at the base.

 The pumpkins and stands are new from Pier 1 this year.  I will find various ways to use the stands which make them a good investment.  

I loved how they made these natural style leaf covered pumpkins including a touch of feathers on the top!

It's begun to feel like autumn here and I'm enjoying it.  I especially love how the nights cool down and the days are moderate in temp.  

Can't help it- tomorrow is the first day of Autumn and I am embracing it!!


  1. Liz,
    Your fall mantel is very simple but so elegant at the same time.

  3. Liz,
    Elegantly done, dear friend!
    Love the texture of your pumpkins!
    Autumn is attempting to arrive here on the Prairie, also!
    Crisp mornings, warm days and breezy evenings. . .
    welcoming my favorite Season of the Year!

  4. Simply elegant Liz. The first thing I noticed was the stands, beautiful and you will get great use out of them I am sure.


  5. I love the simplicity of it all! Beautiful!!

  6. Simplicity at its best! I love the pumpkins on the stands!

  7. Hi Liz, Beautiful mantel, gorgeous and simply yet very elegant and fall inspiring. Love the pumpkins perched on the Pier 1 stands. Have a great first weekend of fall.

  8. Beautiful mantel, very simple but just perfect. I don't like the overdoing of Fall, maybe C'mas, but that's all.
    The pumpkins made of leaves are awesome, my friend.
    Enjoy your Fall weekend.

  9. Simple is fabulous and I love your Fall mantel. I have yet to decorate although, today should get me in the mood, it's dreary and windy. I love how people around here love to decorate their homes, porches and yards with an Autumn theme. So festive!

  10. Liz your mantel looks beautiful. I'm about to pull everything out of my living, dining and kitchen and finally get it painted so it will be a few weeks before I decorate for Fall. I love your place.
