Who else is ready for Autumn?!! Bring on the crisp air, caramel apples, and falling leaves. Once the bug has hit us, it's only a matter of time before we start filling up our houses with pumpkins and cinnamon scented candles! Where should we begin?? The hearth of our home, where the whole family gathers every evening. So here are a few tips for all of us to get our mantles ready for Fall! Let's start with some basics:

1. Begin with a fall garland!

2. Load the mantle up with gourds of all different shapes and sizes.

3. Fill in with vases full of greens to get some height.

4. ALWAYS add candles!
