Fall Mantle {mantel}

Why I am featuring a Fall Mantle in the middle
 of July you ask?   

What?  Don’t you like to get a good start on your
Fall decorating too?  


Actually, I am joining in the “Autumn Decor”
Talent Scout Party at Whisperwood Cottage.

Remember the Vietri Pottery I featured a while back?
The same pottery I felt like I stole from a VA Thrift store 
because it was such a great deal.
“My Own Bramasole.”

I decided to use a few pieces on my mantle.

I started with the soup tureen for a Fall-inspired floral 
arrangement using some recycled stems from my
 handy-dandy bin-o-florals.

Look at this beautiful piece.  If you remember from my post,
Veitri named this line “Bramasole” in honor of the
release of one of my favorite movies,
“Under The Tuscan Sun.”

Hydrangeas, berries, feathers and twigs – and a pretty
vine pumpkin added in too.  Perfectly Fall.

I placed the large platter on the opposite end.

Here is a close-up of the platter. 
I heart this piece!  It is absolutely gorgeous.

In the center, I added two ceramic candlesticks
which echo the rusts of the Vietri.

Some grapevine and bittersweet woven randomly throughout…

… and a pair of sweet ceramic birds, again in a beautiful rust color.

My original intent was to create the mantelscape, then 
take everything down and put it back as it was.

But, I am such a lover of Fall that I may just keep it here 
for a few days to enjoy it a bit more.
(to read:  I am too busy to take it down right now)  


I hope you enjoyed this easy Fall mantle project.

    Looks wonderful! Sigh I’m ready for fall – while getting ready for work this morning I reminded myself it was only a few more (8) weeks of summer work clothes and then we’d have some cooler days mixed in -thanks for inspiring!

    I have no idea what Vietri pottery is but I love your mantle, especially the floral centerpiece with the feathers! Just beautiful – so evocative of fall and ‘olden times’ (hunting birds season, etc.) I love your use of the dark reddish color (cranberry?), rich and warm and very autumnal without being overdone, and I love that you didn’t overload your mantle with tons of decorations. Gorgeous! Visiting from Centsational Girl’s linky party.
