Busting Out the Fall

It's that magical time of year. The nights are getting crisper, pumpkin spice flavored things are everywhere, and the fall decorations have been busted out. And I love it all.

I started decorating for this favorite season of mine last weekend. My mantel and entry table are all fall-ified. I thought I'd share them here, via this "Fantel" link-up party on one of my most favorite blogs.

For the mantel, I decided to use some of the candlestick holders I've accumulated on my thrifting adventures. I added some fall branches and a bushel of fake wheat, filled my apothecary jar with a fall mix, left my mirror and "There's No Place Like Home" etsy print, and...voila, my mantel is ready for fall. I like how it glows :)

To fall-ify my entry table (the one I recently transformed), I hung the feather and cattail (at least I think it's cattail) wreath I made last year. I added some pumpkin shaped mercury glass candle holders, a pot 'o branches with a spooky sign, and a glass pumpkin filled with a mix of black and orange pretties.

I'm looking forward to finishing up the fallification of our house this weekend, which includes the planting of mums. And for me, that can be a dangerous activity. Let's just say, I can go a little overboard. I mean, how many mums is enough? It's an awfully tough judgement call.

Happy Fall!
