Fall Mantle

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a lovely weekend. My roommates and I finished up our Fall mantle and I'm excited to share it with you today! We had everything already except for the leaf garland and candy corns, so it was inexpensive...always a plus!









Decorating in layers was the key!  Stacking old books, incorporating rustic elements with lots of glass, and of course bringing in the orange, yellow, and reds of the season made our mantle complete.  Candy corns added just the right touch of Halloween fun.  My roommate also had this vintage map of Shakespeare's Britain, which I totally love. How fun that it had all the colors of Autumn in it! Vintage + history + color perfection = love.


Have you decorated for Fall yet? 
Love,
