My Fall Mantle & A Giveaway!



One of my favorite little spaces to decorate in our home is the mantle that Brandon built me. 

I love to change out the look from season to season....I've been adding little touches of "fall"  through out the month and am really loving the look....I'm soakin it up a little longer, before it's time to change it out for CHRISTMAS!!


The little pumpkin garland was made with mini pumpkins I found at Walmart and fall leaves from Hobby lobby. The silver pumpkin was actually an orange one I found in the Target dollar spot and spray painted with Krylon's Metallic silver, and the orange and white lights were an after Halloween clearance find! 

 

I love the mix of colors and how they all somehow work together perfectly! 

My favorite part is the mustard felt bow garland from my sweet friend Nat at Take the Cannoli. It completes the whole look, don't you think? Do you love it as much as I do? 

Well good cause....


Nat has offered to give one of you a felt bow garland of your own!! She has lots of pretty colors to choose from, and even better, you can choose from her new holiday colors too! 


 I can totally see that gorgeous red one with an all white and silver mantle! If you don't have a mantle, hang this around your door, on your stair railing or a window! 
Pick a color to decorate for the holidays, or one to stay up all year round! 

1 winner will get to choose one of these felt bow garlands of your color choice!

  5. Hmm... like you, I have so many that it is hard to narrow it down to just one, but I think I love Christmas Eve. Our family gets together the whole day, goes to church that evening, comes home to supper, gifts, and then we sit down together to watch a family movie.

  22. My favorite holiday tradition is one that my parents started way back when – they give my sister and I new "Christmas Eve Pajamas" that we wear when we wait for Santa to come on Christmas Eve ;) Last Christmas, I roped my husband in to the tradition and got him a pair of Christmas Eve jammies, and this year, we will be carrying it on with our own baby girl who was born in September!!
