Fall Mantel Ideas
Well Fall is almost here! It’s still a bit warm around here, but when my friend Kelly invited me to participate in her Falling for Vintage Fall Homes party, I jumped at the chance, because I love Fall Decorating!
Because my house is currently under a major renovation right now (more about that soon), I decided to focus on my Fall Mantel. I love decorating my Mantel and I’m always looking for ideas for changing it up! I raided my home for a few Vintage accessories, and added in a couple of new ones too, to complete the look.
My inspiration piece was a gorgeous Antique print that was passed down from my Grandparents. I love the sepia tones in this print, and the wonderful wood frame. I thought that the wheat bundle in the child’s arms and the wheat sprig in the woman’s hair were perfect for Fall! The print wasn’t quite large enough to fill the Mantel space, so I layered it on top of a large mirror with an ornate frame. Believe it or not, I got the mirror at Walmart! It’s from the Better Homes and Gardens collection, I think it’s really lovely and it was such a great price!
Here’s a close up of the Antique Print. Gorgeous right?!! I wish I could scan it for you guys but it’s huge and also, I’m afraid to remove it from the glass.
I managed to find a great looking wheat bundle at TJ Maxx in the Home decor section, to echo the Wheat in the print. I popped it into an Antique Ironstone Tureen, and propped some books under it to give it a little height. Some dried Hydrangeas from my garden added a little more texture and color to the vignette.
Here’s a close up of the Tureen, I love the detail on the handles!
These old Antlers were a free find… I found them in the trash. Can you believe it?! Also, you can see the pretty details on the BHG Mirror.
One fast and easy way to change out your decor, is to swap out your throws and pillows. This Mohair throw is so warm and cozy and I love it’s nubby texture, I bought it at Ikea a couple of years ago. Burlap is always nice for Fall too!
This Early basket is another family heirloom. It’s filled with more Hydrangeas from my garden. To balance it all out I added a few vintage suitcases from my collection and a lantern from Marshalls.
Check out the writing on the side of this suitcase. It makes me wonder who Albert Ellsworth was and what is life was like. I hope he had a good one!
Thank you for letting me share my Vintage Mantel with you all today! I hope it gave you a few ideas for incorporating some of your Vintage finds into your own Fall displays! Be sure and visit the other bloggers in the party for even more ideas and inspiration!
