It has been two weeks since I shared here at the Fine Craft Guild and happy to be back to bring you some more decorating ideas. Over at One More Time Events, I shared parts of how I decorated my mantel for Fall.
Today here at the Fine Craft Guild, I am sharing how I added to it and completed it with some additional touches to bring out the full effect of Fall. As always, I am to reuse and reuse. Here I am using what I had. Let me show you how I incorporated it to create a one-of-a-kind Fall setting.
Starting in the center of the mantel, I placed a Silver Pitcher filled with some faux and real (Hydrangeas from my yard). I placed a couple of pumpkins into the centerpiece. While carrying out the silver in the pitcher, I added brushed silver trays to each side of the pitcher.
For some added interest, an antique service bell was mixed into the arrangement.
On each side of the centerpiece I used some Mercury glass goblet Candle sticks. Using the Mercury glass not only accents the silvers in place but with the gold tones it brings out the colors of fall.
To carry out the colors and keeping balance within the setting of hydrangeas a small head of hydrangea’s was placed on a mercury glass candle stick holder.
Meanwhile, on the right side of the mantel, a pile of books is tied up with some ribbon displays some silver creamers one filled with another head of hydrangeas next to another mercury glass goblet candle stick.”
See you next week,
