Fall Mantel

For my 2016 fall mantel in the family room,   I left some existing decor and added some new touches as well.

I continued the Pumpkin Patch theme across the hearth that I used to decorate the fall tree.    If you missed that post here is the link to it......

I had bought a box of shutters at the auction Saturday and I decided to replace the pink ones in front of the fireplace with the "new" white ones .     I also took down two of the mirrors above the mantel and replaced them with the rest of my white auction shutters.

I had an architectural piece above the center mirror above the mantel  that I replaced with my Home Sweet Home sign.

I added two white ceramic pumpkins to the front of  the existing Victorian house.

I recently did a make over on two lit ceramic houses and I put them on each side of the Victorian house.

If you missed that post,   here is a link to that post.......

I mixed cloth and plastic pumpkins across the hearth......
