Are you sick of me yet? I hope not because I have a lot more fall content coming your way…:) Including this pretty fall arrangement for a shallow mantel. It didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted it but I still love colors against the dark wall. There was a time when I did elaborate mantels and though I enjoyed putting them together and I still love seeing others put theirs together, my taste and style have changed and I no longer want too much
on the mantel. Well, except for Christmas, then give me all the greenery and sparkly lights.
Last week I bought the little brass jar from the thrift store and I knew it would be perfect for the mantel because it’s small enough to fit. I also went out and bought some mums and a couple of sunflowers from the grocery store and those very unusual looking ‘flowers’ from the flower shop. The lady said they were left overs from a wedding so each stem was $2.00. I have no idea what they are called but I loved the texture and the muted color. I then went for a little walk in the forest with hubby and Brody and I picked little twigs and some fun greenery.
I wanted the arrangement to be a little more asymmetrical and organic but it ended up looking pretty ‘normal’ ha. So I’m going to try again next week and try not to overthink it too much.
I had also videod the process but the video quality was just not great and I didn’t really want to post it. I promise to record the process of the next one.
I’m not sure if I’ve showed you our new chairs yet? I got them this spring and they are super comfy.
As you can see the mantle is as simple as it gets. Just the arrangement and the candles.
I still haven’t styled the shelves for fall but I did add a little wooden pumpkin and the wooden bowl I bought at the thrift store.
In other news, I can’t wait to show you the pretty arrangement I made using that pretty baske. Coming to you on Monday…:)
In the meantime, please don’t forget to visit my friends and their beautiful mantels and vignettes for more inspiration. And as usual, thank you KRISTA for putting this hop together.
