Fall(ish) Mantel

I have a confession to make.  I have never really loved decorating for fall.  I think it is because my birthday is in October and the decorations and colors in the calendars, etc,. were always orange and brown.  As I child I did not like those colors and they are still not my faves.

However, right now I do love gold and white and that can work for fall as well.  So, here is my new obsession incarnate on a mantle.

The lanterns are from Threshold at Target and I found them for $10 each on clearance!  The framed pictures are just framed marbled paper.  The frames are brown Ribba frames from Ikea that I spray painted gold, and the paper I found at Hollander’s.

The wood centerpiece is from Marshall’s and it is called Grapewood.  Grapewood is a natural wood that grows in coastal parts of California.  Each piece is unique.  I love its rustic and beachy feel.

How have you decorated for fall?  It it one of your favorite seasons?
