Fall Mantel and Hearth

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.

It has been difficult to find Indian corn here in Florida, but I finally came up with a few ears to tuck along my mantel and by my basket on the hearth.

Gold antlers are a striking addition to this mantel display for Fall or Thanksgiving.

I styled my mantel beginning with a magnolia leaf garland.  I have previously used for my Christmas Mantel.

Craft picks with pinecones, leaves, acorns and cotton bolls were added to my magnolia leaf garland.

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.  

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. 

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.
