A Fresh Mantlescape For Fall


I wanted a whitescape mantle for fall, so here’s the green and white mantle I did in the family room.  These are my favorite vases. Notice the SWEATER detail on them.  I have seen many very high end versions of these, but I found this pair at Target for a song last Christmas.

Simple yet fresh and visually symmetrical by alternating green and white.

A clean slate before the coming of winter.  I added large moss topiary balls to the vases and whitewashed woven balls to silver pillar candleholders.

The white glazed artichokes came from Hobby Lobby.

The vintage French floating ball from my bathroom finishes the "look".

 I love autumn but I'm personally holding out and enjoying the last bit of summer.  It's been absolutely beautiful here with sunny days and late summer bliss.

Come back Tuesday night to see what I was up to this past weekend in the garden.

Blessings,
Kim

I am with you 100%, Kim. I am hanging onto summer for all it's worth. I feel like I got cheated out of most of it. Enjoy your week- xo Diana
