fall garland

Fall is now in full swing and it seems like my Bloglovin’ feed is constantly flooded with images of seriously enviable fall mantels.

Here in Hawaii, we don’t have a fireplace which is probably a good thing since from the beginning of this pregnancy I have been ridiculously warm all the time. I try to park myself in front of a fan whenever possible BUT if we had a fireplace that was fully decked out with all of my favorite fall decor items, I don’t think I would be able to resist lighting a fire and roasting relaxing there with a good book.

Since we don’t have a fireplace, we don’t have a traditional mantel to decorate — but that doesn’t mean we can’t decorate! This dresser (lovingly referred to as the “shoe and shit shelf”) was thrown out by one of our neighbors a few weeks after we moved into our house. Addie and I rescued it and gave it a home near our front door. We had/have grand plans for the refinishing of this dresser but until we get moving on those plans it will serve as my makeshift mantel.

For fall, I kept the decorations clean and simple: a few mini pumpkins, a couple of decorative gourds, a delicious smelling candle and a DIY garland. The display was very easy to throw together and brought the right amount of “fall” to our home.

We are currently hosting a giveaway on Facebook so head on over for your chance to win a fall garland of your own!
