Fall Mantel

I've been adding fall decor to my home one room at a time.  Next up on my to do list was my mantel.  I love changing it up with the seasons.  Here's what I came up with this year:
My absolute favorite part of the mantel is this ceramic pumpkin I found at Home Goods.
I love a non-traditional pumpkin.  The browns and creams blend so well with the decor in our family room.  The ceramic pumpkin sits on books I wrapped in scrapbook paper in autumn colors.
The owl art I created last year  - I think I used it in my front hallway last fall.
On the other side of the mantel I added a variety of mini pumpkins with a few in a crystal bowl.  I love combining formal with informal - I think it makes for a more interesting display.

The center of the mantel remained the same from my summer mantel.  I really love the glass canister with the bird on top filled with the eggs.  It's the right colors, so I decided it was okay to keep it and just mix in the fall accents.  I'm adventurous that way. Lol
What do you think of my fall mantel?
Have you started to decorate for fall?

I love those mini pumpkins, Judy! I need to get a bunch of minis to add in, but otherwise I'm done. Oh, and I have to do outside, but I'll probably add those touches this weekend.

Your mantel is so pretty, including the mantel, if you know what I'm sayin'!

I love the color of green in your candles. My husband and I are strongly considering making that one of the main colors in our house, we both like it so much. I would probably either go with that color, or "shabby" white everywhere. But hey, when you both find a color you really like, generally it's a good idea to just go with it, lol!
