Hello everyone and welcome to our early fall blog hop! Today I’m joining 11 fellow bloggers to bring you some fall and Halloween inspiration. We’re hoping to inspire you with lots of fall decorating ideas, and today I’m sharing this year’s simple and neutral fall mantel.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of the oranges and rusts that are the traditional fall colors and I know a lot of you aren’t either. Instead, I wanted to create a neutral fall mantel using some of the colors I used in my fall home tour, but even softer.
I love the idea of using items from nature to convey a sense of the season. And I wanted the look to be a soft and simple version of fall. So I focused on greens and creams; using both green and white pumpkins and seeded eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is my absolute favorite green to add this time of year. I love it’s casual, drapey look – and it’s inexpensive, as well as long lasting. What’s not to love about that?!
Simple and Neutral Fall Mantel
I started by layering several bunches of eucalyptus over the surface of the mantel. Usually buy mine at Trader Joe’s but many markets also carry it this time of year.
I then added white and green pumpkins and played around with the order until I was happy with it. It still looked a little sparse when all I had were large pumpkins, so I added some small white ones to balance it out and fill it in.
