Fall on the Mantel

 Well I dove into fall and decorated my mantel.  I decided to use all my MacKenzie Childs pumpkins in one place.

 I used one glass pumpkin to fill in a spot that looked like it needed it.

 This is the little cart from MacKenzie Childs last year.  I decorated with it quite differently as you can see "here".

 The green "verdigris" pumpkin is new from this year. All of the others I've been adding here and there over several years.

I decided to put my two mini pumpkins on top of the candle holders.  They add a festive touch! 

That's all I've done so far except for two pillows on the recliners that have pumpkins on them that I got from Pier 1 recently.
I ordered it online during one of their sales.  It was the only way they were available.

Happy early Fall!


  1. Liz, The mantle is just beautiful. I love every one of your pumpkins. So different. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  2. Your mantel looks very sophisticated with the black and white MK pumpkins. I like your new verdigris one as well. Elevating the small pumpkins on the candlesticks look great! I really like your new pillows on your chairs, Liz. Perfect.

  3. Your mantel looks beautiful. The Mackenzie Child’s pumpkins add such a festive touch. Love them all. The new verigris pumpkin is gorgeous. I have been admiring the new designs. Looks like fall has arrived at your lovely home.

  4. Beautiful Liz. I am still holding on a little longer to summer. I know it is fall but my flowers and all the stuff out front is still in summer mode. Just have not had it in me yet to change over to fall. Maybe this weekend. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Your mantel looks lovely Liz! Love the striped pumpkins. 90+ degree weather is hanging on here and hopefully, it will be in the 80s next week, and I'm definitely not ready for decorating yet, but I'm ready for Fall weather!

  6. What a beautiful home, Liz. The mantle is gorgeous and so is your living room. You were spot on with those candlesticks -- it really sets it up perfectly.

  7. Your mantle looks beautiful all dressed for Fall. Your MacKenzie Childs pumpkins are so pretty and you have a great collection. I just posted my DIY ones and a pitcher for Fall.

    Happy Fall,

  8. Liz, your mantel looks perfect for autumn. The MC pumpkins are so pretty and you have quite the collection. I haven’t done any autumn decorating, it is so hot that it is hard to get in the mood.

  9. Liz,
    Love the whimsy that your MacKenzie Childs pumpkin collection brings tot he mantle!
    Beautiful throw pillow!

  10. Liz, your mantle looks great! I love the MacKenzie pumpkins!!
