Happy Friday! Welcome to Part Two of Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas. Yesterday, I showed you how I used all the autumn colors to create a fall inspired mantel (here). The reds, oranges, yellows and whites combined beautifully to create a really vibrant focal point for our livingroom. In the end, the sunflowers seemed to be the element that really anchored the entire theme. Today, I completely changed the mantel! For this mantle decorating idea, I used white and jarrahdale pumpkins and combined them with light pink roses, hydrangea and seeded eucalyptus to create a softer looking mantel. This is much more subdued and feels French Country. I love the slightly vintage vibe from all these elements. One of the best parts of this mantel is that the hydrangea and seeded eucalyptus will dry beautifully and I can use them again for another project!
I hope that you have a lovely weekend.
A side-by-side comparison of each style.
I started with a blank slate.The Jarrahdale Pumpkin was the focal point, so I started with it and worked from right to left. I alternated color, height and textures.
The vases were bought from a thrift store years ago and worked really nicely with the color theme.
I also had some pink and white striped candles that made the mantel glow.
