Autumn mantle ~

The month of September seems to have flown by and being busy with other obligations I have been a very lazy blogger. I realized the other day just how long it had been since I had put up a new post.

Now with the beginning of the lovely fall season, my favorite time of the year, I am excited to add some autumnal touches to the house and I wanted to share them with you.

In the past I haven't done any fall decorating in my living room - the colors just didn't seem to suit, but since redecorating the room  I now  have a new color palette to work with. Last year I did a small arrangement on the coffee table but this year I decided to do something more elaborate on the mantle.

I was trying for something soft in tone that would reflect the celadon green color in the chairs and drapes. I found the perfect ribbon at Michaels along with the amaranthus. I already had the pumpkins, gourds and seed pods.

This mantle and a large arrangement of  eucalyptus, twigs, berries and other dried plant material on the petite credenza across the room is enough to add a pleasing touch of autumn for me to enjoy throughout the season...and next, well that would be Christmas!

Thank you for visiting I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons.
