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
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
