My Fall Inspired Mantel

I was just thinking that I haven't shared with you my Autumn Inspired Mantel for this year yet. Well, I was also thinking I should share it before I start adding all the Halloween decor :-)

Made the twig urn out of some pretty twigs my hubby and I found on one of our walks.

I think for Halloween I'll hang some little black birds off the twigs... Like this:









Or this...














What do you think?

Now off to decorate for Halloween!


Wishing everyone a fantabulous weekend.



Note:




Hugs and Kisses,

Your mantel is beautiful, it is what I was hoping to do this year, but I couldn't find all of the right elements, so I went with faux flowers. I love what you have done, though.
I want to find a tutorial for the lovely pumpkins that you make, I love the look of them.
Hugs, Cindy

Hi Ana, I love the colors you are decorating with. The twig tree will look great with little blackbirds hanging from them. In fact, you can change it up for all the upcoming holidays. I keep intending to do just that with the branches I have in vases. I should go crochet some pumpkins right now. :) Have a bright and beautiful day. Tammy

I like the black birds idea for Halloween! Very pretty colors on your mantel and arranged so lovely!

I love the idea of adding the birds to the branches. I put crows on branches above my corner cabinet, and I think they really add something!

Your color combinations also look great. I like the red urn and the splash of acid green in the candles. Great job!

Your mantel looks lovely and I also like your new header.

Love your mantel Ana! Mine can't be decorated because of the TV. Love the twig tree and that red urn, black birds would look very pretty!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Ana!
I am so pleased to meet you!
Thank you for visiting 34th Street!
I am so happy that you found me so I could find your wonderful blog!
I stopped by your Etsy shop!
I LOVE the little monogrammed pumpkin. We became grandparents to sweet Holland Grace this past summer.
Since she is to tiny for candy, a pumpkin with an "H" will be perfect for her Halloween visit to our home!

your home is always adorable.
I like the first photo. birds are more ordered. and the branch is "clean". maybe add some small spiderweb, but not the little skeletons.
beautiful your blog for halloween.
kisses and lots of sweets for you my dear friend

I love your Fall mantel, and the green candles really stand out. The red vase is so unique, as red is a favorite color of mine. Your Fall decorating is coming along nicely.

La idea de los pajaritos me parece estupenda, y me gustaría copiártela. Son siluetas de cartón ?
