Rustic Glam Fall Mantle

Was the first day of Fall as gorgeous in your city as it was here?!  We got to experience a significant drop in temperatures and a morning without humidity- pretty near perfect!  In honor of the official start of Fall, I put together a "rustic glam" mantle.  Of course, we don't really have a true mantle, so our console table subbed in. 



I got some glam inspiration from this little fox I found at Target.   Have you seen him yet? I passed him up a couple of times, but recently couldn't resist. Foxes are the new owl. :) He was originally a nice, light natural wood tone, but I sprayed him gold.  He's wearing a handwritten welcome tag and sitting next to my very favorite Pottery Barn lamp. 




I wanted the main scheme of the table to focus on the (mostly) real pumpkins and a few pops of bling.  Oranges, cream, and forrest green are so pretty together with metallic silver and gold. I felt the display was rustic with the wooden dough bowl, woven basket below, veggies, and burlap lining the bowl.  I almost embellished the pumpkins, but went with my friends on Instagram (@honeywerehome) who recommended keeping them natural.  Thanks for weighing in! :)

I found the eucalyptus at Hobby Lobby for just a couple of dollars and placed them inside hammered vases from Target.  They were both originally silver and I sprayed one gold.  I love the height, shape, and natural color of the eucalyptus. 


I found the dough bowl at a Christmas fair and use it all year long. Most of the time it's in the kitchen holding onions, potatoes, garlic, avocados- items I cook with often.  Here, I lined it with cream-colored burlap and fit 11 small pumpkins and a few mandarin oranges (to fill in the gaps) inside.  


This table is fitted with a shelf below so I like to take advantage of the extra decorating space.  


The mercury glass candleholders were from Target (I think) as were the candles.  I wrapped ribbon and washi tape around the candles and added a decorative leaf to two. 


To pretty up the pillows, I added decorative ribbon.  The burlap and satin ribbon is my favorite.  The ombre green throw is from West Elm.


I made the wreath very easily with faux hydrangeas and a straw ring form.  Go here for the full tutorial.

    1. Thanks Melissa! I use a tripod so I can lower the shutter setting. Most of these photos were taken with my Nikon D90, Aperature f4, shutter speed 1/4, and ISO 640. I usually close the blinds so that the light is even in the room. Hope this helps! :)
