Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I’m excited to be sharing my first fall decorating post of the season and it’s all about fall mantels!
Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, so I’m always anxious to start collecting pumpkins, putting out cozy blankets, and having my first Pumpkin Spice Latté of the season! Of course, it’s still hot here in California, but we’ll just pretend that there’s a chill in the air already while burning my favorite pumpkin candle! 😉
I’ve been stalking my local Trader Joe’s for the last week looking for pumpkins, and am thrilled to have been able to get some in time for this tour.
You see, I had a certain color scheme in mind for my fall decor this year, and it involved being able to find the pinky-orange pumpkins that I saw there last year. I wanted to do something a little more colorful than my previous neutral fall mantel, but nothing too strong. I generally steer away from the bright oranges and dark rusts, but lately I’ve been loving a softer version of that palette. All those warm and cozy autumn colors, but just a bit more faded.
Think soft coral, faded gold, and lots of green, with accents of brass and copper. That’s what I had in mind when I created my romantic fall mantel in shades of copper…..
Of course, I have to have my favorite white baby boos! What would fall be without these?!
Though if you can’t find real ones yet, I’ve found some faux baby boos that are so realistic! And I love that you can use them year after year. I got some for using during any year that I can’t find the real ones.
I mixed them with lots of eucalyptus, as well as one of these fabulous pink/orange pumpkins! I’m in love with this color!
After having several seasons of a more neutral fall palette, it’s actually a really nice change to have some color in here! I’m enjoying the warmth these colors add to the room, and it’s making me definitely want some cooler weather now!
My vintage French urn holds more eucalyptus and is joined by some adorable copper votives. As soon as I saw these, I knew they would be part of my fall decor this year! (Sadly, these are discontinued but I’ve found some cute similar ones below).
And I actually mixed faux and fresh flowers in this mantel for the first time ever! I think the trick to using some faux is to mix some real in with them. It gives the whole thing a more authentic look! 😉
