Fall Mantel by @Jenna_Burger

I've been loving the cool temps over the past few days, have you?  For me, there's no transition time once September hits.  A switch goes off in my head that says "Fall, Fall, Fall".  Thankfully I haven't dug out the sweaters yet, BUT I did gather some decor for my newest mantel for the coming season. Autumn is almost here and after sharing a fun roundup of Fall Fireplace Mantels earlier this week, I'm ready to reveal mine.  But before we begin, I have a confession to make...

14 Festive Fireplace Mantels for Fall

Fall is a favorite time of year for me. Even though it's not technically a new year, with the kids returning to school, it feels like a new beginning. I treasure the breezy days of late September when we get to pack away the sandals and replace them with riding boots and polar fleeces. I enjoy apple picking and pumpkin carving with the kids while being mesmerized by the Fall foilage. But most of all, I love organizing and decorating for the new season.  Pumpkins, ghords, warm colors, blankets...  Autumn brings such cozy thoughts.  As I'm starting to think about and get in the mood for … [Read more...]

Fall Wreath with Fabric Flowers

Fall is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate a new season than to don a new wreath on the front door.  The front door is often thought of as the “mouth” of a home, the entry point of comfort, happiness, and where great opportunities begin. For me the front door, signifies the "entrance of", so let's enter this new season with my new Autumn Wreath. I loved last year's wreath because it was different and unique, but for a long time, I've wanted to jump on the bandwagon and make a burlap round wreath with fabric flowers.  I was going to make this style wreath in the Spring, … [Read more...]

Decorating for the Fall

September 21, 2010

Well, my favorite time of year is here again....FALL!  I was excited by this cool weather, and went out this afternoon to buy mums and pumpkins to decorate my front porch.  From that, I was inspired to provide some affordable tips on decorating the front entry of your home.  The entryway and/or porch of your house, is the first thing everyone will see when visiting.  First start off with hanging a festive wreath that has leaves, berries, sugar pumpkins, fall ribbon, and/or sticks.  I prefer a wreath that is simple using only one element, but this focal point into your home can be as ornate as … [Read more...]
