Fall Mantel Decor… Week 3

Welcome to Week 3 of our Bloggers Fall Tour! We truly hope that you have enjoyed following along and have gained some inspiration for your own homes. Remember, Week 1 was Fall Tablescapes and you can see ours HERE. Week 2 was Fall Recipes and you can find our recipe HERE.

Lets get going with this weeks theme – Mantels!!! Now, we know some of you don’t have mantels, but you can definitely use these same ideas on a shelf, ledge or tabletop. Yesterday, Angie with The Altered Past shared her creative mantel decor using an old door with a mantel/shelf attached. Click HERE to see her creation!

We love all things vintage and rustic and we really wanted to add a lot of these elements into our decor. Even Honey Bee got involved and gave us a hand :) Here’s a full view of what we created:

I move it around frequently and I thought it would be the perfect centerpiece to build off of.

The vintage trophies and loving cups are typically always on the mantel except for Christmastime. I’ve filled them with all types of decorative items – sticks, shells, moss. They are a great vessel to build off of and in this case we used flowers from our garden.

The antique spool is from an old Georgia mill. It too was great for added extra height  and dimension to the mantel.

    This looks ah-mazing! You guys are so creative! Im currently preparing my Christmas list which I’m hoping includes the suitcase, ladder, demi john, trophy cups, and herbs box just to name a few. Southern vintage style at its finest. Great job ladies!

      Why Thank you BobbI…We tend to decorate with a “more is better” attitude and were happy with the end result. I just love looking up and seeing my collections on the mantel!

    So lovely! I loved that you incorporated an item you’ve had for years (the birdcage). And can we talk about that trophy????? In all my jaunts, I’ve never come across one that I could AFFFORD!!! LOve them. Mantles or on everyone’s mind today.
    Lovely post!

      Hey Donna!! You’re right…collections are getting harder and harder to build. We feel prices have skyrocketed over the past couple of years. I am fortunate that I already have a couple of collections…but I would really like to add to them. Trophies and ironstone are very hard to come by at a reasonable price these days. Happy hunting…let us know what you find!

    I saw this post in your “Related Posts” and I had to pop over because I have almost that exact same birdhouse that I bought secondhand earlier this summer, except it’s not painted. I almost didn’t buy it because it was pretty expensive at the resale shop but I am so glad I did. It’s one of my favorite accessories now. You can see it here if you’d like :) http://girlinthegarage.net/2016/07/cherry-blossom-dresser-makeover-themed-furniture-day
