Fall Mantel with Apples and White Pumpkins

We are finally getting some cooler days so I thought it was time to update my mantel for fall!  After all, this is only the second year we've had this stone fireplace.  I have been eager to play around with it a bit...

White Pumpkins on Fall Mantel

My son and I stopped by a farm stand yesterday and picked up these cute little white pumpkins.  They are always one of my favorites for fall.

Apple Art on Fall Mantel

I dug around in the basement and found this framed fruit print which used to hang in my dining room.  Months ago, I decided that this would be the year to finally repaint my red dining room.  I didn't see any point in re-hanging this art since I plan to go for a different look in there.  Have I repainted the room yet?  Well, no but I really plan to do it soon...I swear...

I added a bit of greenery in white pots to pick up the white from the pumpkins and mat on the artwork.

Basket of Apples - Decorating the Mantel for Fall

I had these small fruit baskets from Michael's Craft Store so I decided to fill them with apples to go with the artwork.  I am loving the selection of apples in the stores lately.  They are always so much better when you buy them in season!

Apples and pumpkins...sure they go together.  Why not?!!

I already had some red in the family room so the apple theme fit right in.

I might change things around in October but I think this works fine for September...kind of an early harvest type of look.

Like I said, this is our second year with this stone fireplace.  If you would like to see last year's fall fireplace click here - October 1st Mantel.  I also decorated our old mantel many times over the years.  You can see some of those posts here - Four Mantels for Fall.
