Fall Mantel with Apples and White Pumpkins

Since, we are finally getting some cooler days, I thought it was time to decorate a fall mantel with apples and pumpkins!  After all, this is only the second year we’ve had this stone fireplace.  I have been eager to play around with it a bit…

Using natural accessories like apples and pumpkins are perfect for fall…

White pumpkins have become so popular for fall!

My son and I stopped by a farm stand yesterday and picked up these cuties…I think they are called “Baby Boos”.

Lean a piece of artwork…

During a recent dig through the basement, I found this framed fruit print which used to hang in my dining room.  Months ago, I decided that this would be the year to finally repaint my red dining room.  Since I plan to go for a different look in there, I didn’t see any point in re-hanging this art.  Have I repainted the room yet?  Well, no but I really plan to do it soon…Really, I swear…(**Exciting update – the dining room is painted!)

Some greenery on the mantel always helps…

For some more color, I added a bit of greenery in white pots.  As you can see, the white repeats with the pumpkins and mat on the artwork.

You can’t go wrong with fresh apples!

Since these small fruit baskets from Michael’s Craft Store were just sitting around, I decided to fill them with apples to go with the artwork.  Have you noticed the great selection of apples in the stores lately?  They are always so much better when you buy them in season!

Since, I already had some red in the family room, the apple theme fit right in.

Although, I might change things around in October but I think this works fine for September…It’s kind of an early harvest type of look.

Before long, we will be building some roaring fires in here.  I am sure my boys can’t wait!

    Looks great, Shelley. I love to decorate with apples in the fall, too. I have not bought the first pumpkin yet. I will when it feels like fall. 🙂

    Looks wonderful! Those little "apple baskets" are perfect for your display and the apple print is a terrific backdrop. Glad to hear I'm not the only one that has had plans to do some painting around the house for "awhile" now. 🙂
