Fall Decor on the Etagere

Here is a look at how I decorated the etagere that stands in the far corner of our living room.  Although it usually takes me awhile to get a look I like, I always enjoy arranging seasonal decor on this piece of furniture.

Here's the full view of the etagere.

I'll break it down shelf by shelf for you starting with the top one.

I've kept these trees as a backdrop. They are a metal wall art piece that I attached to the etagere a few years back.

These pumpkin soup tureens make great decor items atop candleholders. Faux fall flowers in a burlap vase sit on a piece of birch.

Wooden letters spell out the season we are celebrating.

The second shelf

I had fun adding a buffalo check pillow on this shelf.  It made for a contrasting backdrop to these orange pillar candles.

In the center of the shelf, I placed a round basket behind a wooden cross.

A faux fall flower arrangement and another pumpkin soup tureen sit to the right on this shelf.

Another look at the fall decor on this shelf.

The third shelf features a birdcage as the centerpiece.

A little birdie has made a nest on yet another pumpkin soup tureen :)

A black lantern and scarecrow sit on each side of the birdcage.

I placed some fall decor inside the lanterns instead of candles.

Another look at the birdcage, lanterns and scarecrows on this shelf.

The fourth shelf

The black colour is continued with a black lantern on this shelf as well.

Another buffalo check pillow provides a background for these fall ceramic pieces.

The matching fall floral arrangement from the 2nd shelf is placed here on the bottom shelf to carry the colours throughout.

A final look at this shelf.

And there you have my fall decor on the etagere.

I hope you'll check back to see more of my fall decor.

Pumpkins & Antlers Fall Mantel

I've started my fall decorating and began with the mantel and fireplace in our living room.  I chose a pumpkins & antlers theme since I wanted to group all of the Pier 1 antler pieces Mr Delight has given me over the past while in one place. Last year, I went with a more neutral colour scheme (here) but the more traditional oranges were calling to me this fall.

I like how they pop against the stone of our fireplace.

And they add a warm glow to the living room.

Which is the look I crave in the fall.

I started by hanging this pumpkin wreath inside a gold frame above the mantel.

A few leaves are falling from this metal wall art piece with the help of clear fishing line.

This gold tone antler candleholder from Pier 1 was placed in the center of the mantel.

Mr. Delight gave me these 3 pieces for different occasions over the past while.

He picked them out himself and I just love them!

I nestled pumpkin garlands around the bases.

I placed a vase of tall faux grasses with battery-operated mini-lights on each end of the mantel. They look nice at night.

And of course, candlelight always creates a cozy atmosphere.

A couple years back, I made this FALL banner and I brought it out again for this year's mantel.

I taped it to the existing curtain rod underneath the mantel.

The hearth got a dose of fall as well.

I recently ordered this fall pillow cover from Amazon.

It's perfect for Thanksgiving so I placed Mr Turkey beside it.  Thanksgiving is Oct 9th this year - not that far away!

On the other side of the hearth sits a tall vase with a fall floral arrangement.

More Thanksgiving decor was added below.

Now that the fireplace area is decorated for fall, it is time to move on to the rest of the house.  Hope you'll check back and see what progress I've made.
