two mantels = twice the fun

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Save the date break!! While I wait on my mom to send me her guest list with addresses, I decorate under my roof. When I started working on the first mantel with Halloween fun, I couldn't leave our second mantel bare and lonely. So I started with what I had, created a few projects and used inspiration from the wonderful blogs I visit often. Here is one that I just love from Good Housekeeping.

Just a Girl made her mantel a top inspiration for me!

This fall inspired mantel was created by Traci at One Fell Out of the Cuckoo's Nest. She doesn't stop at the mantel and has great ideas for the rest of your house.

The great thing about this mantel is that it's so simple yet colorful and meets your fall theme. Thanks Poetic Home for sharing an amazing picture!

Who needs a mantel to get festive? Not the Smith family! I fell in love with this space when it was featured on Eighteen 25.

Here is our new and improved 929 Halloween mantel (and I know I need something a little bigger behind "eek" but let's wait for the after Halloween sales):

While I added a little more jazz to the fall mantel in the family room.

For a lot more inspiration and ideas on how to decorate for fall in any place of your home, visit the Nesting Place and check out its Fall Mantel Party.

  1. I hope you know I've added "mantle" to my list of must haves for our future house. I can't wait to join the mantle party! In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through you.
