I love changing my mantle to reflect the seasons. It is such a nice change of pace from the rest of my home. Plus it is a fast fix to make the room feel different without having to move a lot of furniture around. I have found that lately I am sticking to just a few items, unlike years past where I have packed as much stuff on the mantle as I possibly could. The simplicity of it all really appeals to me right now.
Shopping the house is always my main focus when I am putting together a new mantlescape. Recently I purchased a grapevine wreath but decided to leave it alone and not decorate it with anything. Again, the simplicity of it really works for me right now. I love to display elements that reflect what reminds me of the season. Fall is also a great time to play a tribute to the hunter in your life by making a mini exhibit of the antlers, feathers, or mounts that they have collected from their hunting trips.
Happy Fall everyone!!
