Coastal Fall Mantel Decor

I’ve been struggling with how to proceed with fall decor this year. Living in Florida, the concept of fall is really just a dream. In fact, last year my kiddos were swimming the day after Thanksgiving. In the past, I’ve just turned down the a/c, grabbed some pumpkin spice coffee, and went all in on fall. This year, I decided to stay a little more true to our home and life which means subtle fall decorating that fits in with our everyday decor. My sweet friend Taryn Whiteaker is hosting a fall mantel blog hop and I’m delighted to share my coastal fall mantel decor today!

As I mentioned, I really wanted to bring all the fall feels while staying within my regular color palette. It was also important for me to have a crisp and simple mantel for fall. I love the idea that everything is fresh and new in the fall.

The focus on the mantel is the display of pumpkins. I loved my painted pumpkins from last year and they inspired the idea of this simple display of ombre blue painted pumpkins.

I bought a few bundles of the fake gourds from the craft store and painted them during a very short nap time.

I always like varying heights when I decorate my mantel. I used some faux leaves stems and my favorite lanterns flank the other side.

I hope this post encourages you to decorate seasonally if your heart desires it. You can add elements of coziness with small and subtle changes!

The fall fun doesn’t stop with this coastal fall mantel. There’s more fall mantel inspiration to enjoy.
