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. If you have landed here from my friend Mysha at Remington Avenue, welcome! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. 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.
Over the last several weeks I’ve spent time sprinkling some neutral fall decor around the house. And then moving it around again! I’ve used mostly white and green pumpkins (like my tablescape here), a little greenery, and neutral flowers in green and white. I just want to enjoy it for the next week or so while I can!
I absolutely adore white pumpkins! I’m sure this comes as no surprise, seeing as how I love white everything! But I am especially smitten with these. I don’t know about you, but they definitely weren’t around when I was growing up. There were plain old orange ones and that was it! And let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of houses where bright orange decor really works 😉
I don’t know about any of you, but I certainly never saw white pumpkins when I was growing up! I think one of the reasons I was not big on decorating for fall and/or Halloween for the longest time was the whole orange pumpkin thing.
It just didn’t mesh with my colors or my decor and so, although fall is my absolute favorite season, I really didn’t put out that much or buy very many pumpkins. The orange was just a disaster with all the blues and greens in my house, and really bad with the reds in my family room!
