Pumpkins and Burlap Thanksgiving Mantel

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pumpkins & Burlap Thanksgiving MantelThere has been so much Halloween excitement at my house this year with the little grands that I decided to wait and let my fall mantel have a Thanksgiving theme. After all, it’s really my favorite holiday and I wanted to give it its due since it so often gets lost between Halloween and Christmas. I love seeing all of my family gathered around the table each year as new little faces are added and our extended family grows!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Transitioning into Fall...Apple and Bittersweet WreathThe starting point was the wreath and that one was not as easy as I had imagined. I had planned all along to rework my transitional APPLES AND BITTERSWEET FALL WREATH, but finding the perfect replacement for the apples took some searching.

But something was still missing…then I spied this burlap banner at Target for only $3.00winner! I could hardly make it that inexpensively!

  1. It's perfect Deb. I can't believe you found that banner for only $3!!! :-O That's a bargain. The only thing I think is missing are some legos and dinosaurs. Well, that's tucked into my Fall centerpiece right now. :-D xxoo, Barb

  2. Deb it looks wonderful, I especially love the urns with the stack of pumpkins, so pretty and organic looking. Happy Fall!!

  3. Deb, it is gorgeous! When you decorate you mantel I always wish I had one to decorate myself. It's just stunning, but I must admit the food is my favorite part also!

  4. Debbie, that is truly beautiful, just the right shade of teal blue-green for a Thanksgiving transition!

    Two years ago, Bill informed me, "It's all about the mashed potatoes and gravy, MoM!!!"
    Some kids just never grow up!!!
