Fall is my favorite time of year and decorating is always about bringing the outside in. So when I decided to Fall-up the lobby mantle here at the Uptown Regency, I chose to keep the colors and feel of the décor exactly that… organic and simple.
The most important tip for decorating a mantle is to keep it balanced. Nothing to heavy or tall on one side if you aren’t balancing the other side.
Here I just started layering… first some green leaves and tree limbs… then the pumpkins, squash, lemons and other natural elements. I positioned the lanterns and then decided I needed something tall on either side. I chose the two tall vases with the sunflowers to tie in all the colors and textures. And the finished project is perfect for fall right thru Thanksgiving. Maybe you prefer Halloween décor instead… just remember if you do a mantle for that you will have to change it again once November 1 hits… and then again after Thanksgiving. This mantle will get you through the end of November without much upkeep. Enjoy this wonderful time of year!
