Fall Mantel Decorating

Eeeeeeek!! Fall makes me squeal in delight. I saw some leaves fall last week and I could hardly contain myself. I am counting the days till September cause that is when this house goes all Fall! If you know me {even a little}, you know that I ADORE FALL!! Everything about it. Now I know that the weather is hot pretty much until the end of October and that technically the first official day of Fall this year is September 23rd but —  it’s my most favorite time of year and it goes so fast with all of the fun that swirls around the season. This being said, I am putting out all of my pumpkins and sweet Fall finds come September 1st. Now as far as Halloween? Well I do a little switch over on October 1st. There really is a method to my madness 🙂 I will definitely share my mantel once it is all decorated but I thought I’d give you some fun inspiration from blog-land.

Life in Grace always inspires me. I love the simplicity of this mantel and of course the saying is one of my faves.

The Lettered Cottage is also a fave. I love the simplicity of this mantel. Doesn’t Gather really sum up the season?

Sweet Something Designs did a little mantel makeover. I likey! Pendants are always a fun way to highlight a season.

Just a Girl always has some fun stuff going on. I love how she ‘shops’ her house to decorate for a new season.

The Nester is another fun place to visit. I love that she added in some blues to her Fall scene. Fun!

Tatortots and Jello not only has great ideas but they also show you HOW to make certain things like this cute pendant. I do love tutorials!

Ten June shared a mantel that I adore. #1 – she uses a monogram which I love in decorating and #2 – she has the owl I just bought this last week at HomeGoods!

One Nutty Girl showcases a family photo with a mix of letters spelling ‘family’. I love this! Probably cause I am a complete letter and word junky as far as decorating goes.

Random Thoughts added some bunting and a list of all things Fall.

These are just a few fun ideas for Fall mantel decorating. Do you change up your mantel by season? I’d love to see some pics. I think I need to figure out this linky party thing. Then ya’all could share with me!!
