{Simple} Fall Mantel


Can you tell I am all about simple these days?  Ha ha, I think because my life has been so crazy this past year I just want simplicity, calm and serenity.  Easier said than done, but I do feel it in my fall mantel.


I used the garland from last year and my garage sale dried gourds.  {I love them.}  I kept the books I already had up there and that was it! I hung my dried magnolia leaf wreath with burlap ribbon on the fireplace screen like I did last year in my front room.  A few acorns on the side table and that was it!

A few small touches of fall give my family room a warm harvest feel.  I changed up the look from last year a bit just my moving some things around from different rooms and using what I already had. Simple as that! ;)

Gettin’ all Linky….

  1. I love it! I also decided to go simpler this season and am thrilled I did.

  2. Krista finally someone who has the same problem as me with the TV above the mantel!! It's such a decorating dilemma, we should write a book on it. Love the simple leaves and those gourds are truly a treasure.
