Autumn decor

Photobucket

Vanessa decorates her mantel differently each season, and it's always gorgeous. I'm a little obsessed with the chippy mirror and those pitchers! I love all the sizes and slightly different colors.

Let's talk about that clock, too. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen! Here's a little tour of her Autumn decor.

Apples on the Mantel

I'm a little bit obsessed with spray painting horses.   This is a horse I found in the toy section at Goodwill for a dollar.  I think they'd be so fun in bright colors or gold for a party!! 

Vanessa already had this gorgeous antique frame, and the plate, and I bought the vintage apothecary bottle on my way to Montana for the shoot.

The apples and snowberries fit so perfectly on the mantel, and give it a bright pop of color.

This would be really easy to recreate, but we would love to see what you've done to decorate your mantels for Autumn! Have you used apples or pumpkins? Let us know in the comments! Send us pictures of your mantel and we'll feature it on our Facebook page!

Apples in Autumn

We love a gorgeous white pumpkin, cornstalks, and burlap, but this year we decided to branch out (no pun intended) and style apples in various ways for fall.

We found a wild apple tree down by the lake and harvested a few branches.  I am in love with the bright colors on each one.  Greens, yellows, and reds -- it really is a great palette to work with for the season.

Always looking to do something unique, we styled apples on top of vintage bottles in this first shoot.  Add in a few old rusty springs and an apple branch, and it's a quick way to decorate a mantle or entry table.  We love this look!

For a centerpiece idea, tip a small basket of apples on it's side, and place a few berries among the apples that naturally spill out on to the table.  We used snowberries and dogwood which are easily found in the forest in Montana.  You can get creative with different berries wherever you are! I love that the forest is full of inspiration.

DIY Fall Centerpiece

Some of you know that I, Jana, used to have my own blog.  It hasn't been updated in 2 years, but there are a few great posts that I would love to share with those of you who didn't read my blog.  

This post is a cheap centerpiece idea that my mom and I came up with while exploring the woods in Montana.  

You'll need a vintage chicken feeder (here's a great one for sale on Etsy), some pumpkins, some hay, black spray paint, and candles.  I recommend flameless, but if you'll be at the table, nothing beats the flicker and color of a real flame.


Spray paint your chicken feeder, and stage your pumpkins in a bed of hay.  Place candles on the top and enjoy!

Get yourself some cream cheese, butter, chocolate chips, sugar, flour, bananas, cream, an egg, some baking powder, and some salt.

Beat the cream cheese and butter together until it's nice and fluffy, and then mix in all of the other ingredients.  

Pop them in the oven and bake on 400 for 20 minutes!
