So let’s talk mantels! Particularly mantels with a TV. When it came to the placement of our TV in our new house I lost. My hubby really wanted the TV over the fireplace. It was his one request so how could I argue. But between you and me, I don’t love it there. Why? It can make decorating difficult! I know that sounds crazy but it is true! As challenging as it can be, I have to admit it, I LOVE my fall mantle!
I have tried to collect a variety of colors and shapes of pumpkins over the years. Most of my pumpkins actually came from Wal-mart! I always start in the middle and work my way out when placing the pumpkins being sure to alternate the position of each pumpkin.
Once I got them where I wanted them I tucked in faux eucalyptus sprigs between the pumpkins. I love then the eucalyptus hangs down a little, giving it the look of an actual vine.
I found these mini grapevine pumpkins at Hobby Lobby this year and tucked them in where I had small gaps. The texture and color is the perfect addition!
To add some height and texture, I placed my favorite candlesticks on each end of the mantle and voila! My fall mantle is complete! I just love all of the natural colors and textures! Now, all I need to do is light a fall candle and wait patiently for cooler temperatures! Happy decorating friends!
