Beautiful Fall Mantel and Hearth

Fall Mantel

Before we redid our fireplace the first time, I went all traditional styling a fall mantel and hearth.  It is fun to look back and see how I styled it before we added our blue tile and took out the funky electric fireplace.

Antlers and Gourds share this mantel that is decorated for ThanksgivingCraft picks with pinecones, leaves, acorns and cotton bolls were added to my magnolia leaf garland.

Celebrating Fall and Thanksgiving with a mantel and hearth that are decorated for Fall.I used both gold faux antlers and a real antler on my mantel and then filled in with various fall picks, faux gourds and pumpkins.  I filled a bushel basket with Fall florals and pumpkins.  In the back behind the large gold pumpkin I used a wreath of oak leaves.  You don’t always have to use a wreath AS a wreath. I once used the same wreath beneath a basket for an arrangement.  You can see that here at How to Make a Fall Arrangement.  A lavish bushel basket of gourds, leaves and florals rests o the hearth in this lovely Fall display.

Coastal oversized jars were included in this Thanksgiving display by adding a couple of large Fall floral picks.I didn’t want to put away my big glass jars that usually adorn my fireplace, so I just added a small Fall swag to a couple of them and clustered them on one corner of my hearth. A splendid arrangement of leaves and pumpkins grace the hearth in this Thanksgiving display.

Magnolias, cotton bolls, gourds, pumpkins and antlers make for a lavish display on this Fall or Thanksgiving mantel.

Dried magnolia blossoms and dried artichokes are nestled amongst the antlers and magnolias on this Fall mantel.A couple of my favorite finds were these faux magnolia blossoms that look like they are faded and the faux dried up artichokes.  These were the perfect additions to finish off my Fall mantel.  Stay tuned for my Halloween mantel coming up in a few short weeks!

  1. Terrific fall mantel! I really like the fullness of it and the colours you used look so rich. You’ve definitely proven that even a mantel with a TV over it can be decorated beautifully. Those magnolia leaves and antlers look fab!

  2. Beautiful Chloe, love the elements you’ve chosen and the gold accents. I’ve just about gotten Halloween out of my system, and I’m ready to bring in some calmer November decor- your mantel and fireplace decorations would work in any style home, just lovely!

    1. Thank you Jenna. I put up my Halloween early this year, took my pictures and in true blogger form, took it down two weeks ago and did my Fall! Next week, time to begin Christmas!

  3. Your mantel is lovely. Love the garland. It is rich with so many fall items. My Halloween is still up, because we had some dinner parties. One more halloween dinner party to go and then it’s gone.

  4. After seeing your beautiful decor I’m more convinced than ever that I need antlers. I don’t know how you’re going to pack this away at the end of the season it’s so pretty. However, I know you have something gorgeous up your sleeve for Christmas!

    1. Oh Sandra, I don’t know where I am going to pack it all either. I am emptying Christmas bins to put the Halloween stuff away, but after Christmas I am going to have a little issue! I finally think my style is coming around, very full, very lush, what I kind of think of as very Pottery Barn “ish”.

    1. Thank you Angela. I got that garland a few years ago at a place in Sandusky, Ohio called K & K Interiors. They do sell online to businesses, but you have to go directly to their stores to purchase otherwise. The garlands were $9.99 for a six foot garland, so my husband just kept pulling out more and more of the, I think we bought 10 or so at that great price!

  5. I love your Fall mantel! The metallic touches really makes it pop! 🙂
