Decorating a Mantle for Fall

*Disclosure: I was sent product to review, but as always- all opinions are my own! 

In the past, I have made myself wait until September to start decorating for fall. But this year, I am throwing caution to the wind and starting early! 

Balsam Hill contacted me about reviewing one of their wreaths, and that was all the motivation I needed to get in the mood for Fall decor. 

I chose the Harvest Foilage Fall Wreath. I have been in love with this style of wreath for awhile, but I could never find one locally that was this full. I am so impressed with the amount of 'goodies' on this wreath. 

When I decorate my mantle, the wreath is always the center-piece. Then I build around it with accessories. Getting started, I wasn't exactly sure of my 'theme'. But when I saw the colors of the leaves in the wreath, I decided on Metallics and Nature. (Which really means I want a lot of gold and silver accessories mixed in with pumpkins!) Since the pumpkins aren't out in stores yet, I got started on 'shopping my house' for the accessories I wanted to pair with the wreath. The painted brick fireplace makes a great backdrop for the metallics.

I want to add a few pumpkins too, I am thinking I will spray paint them gold. And then mix in some white pumpkins too. I like to keep my holiday decor along the same lines as my house decor, lots of neutrals with a variety of textures.
