Can you believe it’s September? With everything that has been going on, it seems like time is dragging on. The months seem to be running together, but dare I say it, things are becoming somewhat normal again! My kiddos just started back to school last week and as tradition, I pull out the Fall decor!
This year was no different! I was absolutely bursting at the seams to decorate! Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul!
Unlike years past, I wanted to incorporate a little color into my design. I headed to Michaels & found this beautiful maple leaf garland. It’s the perfect touch of color to pair with my decor! I swagged it across the middle, leaving a little to hang down on the side. Perfectly imperfect.
While I was at Easton that day grabbing my garland, I stopped by one of my favorite stores, Trader Joes! They always have the best selection of fresh eucalyptus. I snagged two bunches of silver dollar & two bunches of traditional.
I came home & made small bouquets for a couple places throughout my decor & also added in fresh stems to my garland to pull the look together.
The simplest way to add instant character to any mantel design is books & candles. You can never go wrong! Of course, I used my favorite mercury glass votives & candlesticks. I added in a few antique pieces & it just gave this design life!
Not to mention my favorite chunky knit blanket! Adds instant coziness ♥️ You can find one here similar to mine!
I feel like this is the perfect, simple introduction to Fall. I will be changing it up as we will be making some changes to the paint color & other updates coming soon! Follow along with me on Instagram for the latest!
