A Green & White Fall Mantel

Fall | Home Tour

I love this time of year when the air turns crisp and the leaves start to fall.  Hot apple cider, pumpkin scones, acorns, gourds, baby boo pumpkins, family…there are so many things that I love about Fall!  But there’s one little thing that I don’t love.  Decorating with orange.  What can I say?  Orange just isn’t in my comfort zone!  Finding Fall decor that isn’t red, orange, and yellow is challenging, so this year, I just used items that I had on hand.  Plant clippings, white pumpkins, hydrangea, and pinecones all mix together to create my version of a Fall mantel!

I included my potted wheat stalks, which have a traditional Fall look to them.  I then decided that the worn edges of old books would tie in well with the wheat, and so added some books to the mantel.  On one side, I stacked several together in a grouping.

I added a white pumpkin and a pinch of my Bright Ideas sweet potato vine for a pop of color.

On the other side, I included a bloom from my hydrangea, which started out blue {see it here} but has now turned to this amazing green color!  Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to successfully dry it.

I added a few pinecones and acorns across the entire mantel, and centered my latest ironstone find, a covered casserole dish.

I haven’t had this piece very long, but I’ve already found lots of uses for it all around the house!  {Hmmmmm…I might need another one!}

So that’s how Fall looks in my living room this year!  What are your favorite Fall colors to use in decorating?
