Fall Mantel Party {aka Fantel Party}

I’m anticipating a cool fall.

I love warm rusty reds, golden yellows and the perfect pumpkin shade of orange that doesn’t look plasticy as much as the next fall loving girl but this year I thought I’d play around with cooler fall colors.  My goal is to keep our home feeling warm and cozy while still showcasing my blues greens and grays.  It’s a fun challenge.  And I’m still tweaking it.  And it already looks different from what you see in these photos.

I’m autoposting this tonight and I haven’t done that in awhile, so just in case you are reading this post and the linky thing for you to link up doesn’t show, please come back first thing in the morning and I’ll have it up.  Now go ahead and link up to your post about your fall mantel. Can’t wait to see them all.

While you area at it, if you want to show off the rest of the fall around home, Julia at Hooked on Houses is hosting a Fall Decorating Party.

Special thanks to @decorchic and @FOTFBlog for calling it a “fantel party” I will never be able to say the words “fall mantel” again.


  1. I came via Julia, as I told her tomorrow is going to be a rainy yucky day here so I will be coming back for a LONG visit…

    Thanks for hosting this…

    All the best,
    Kathy :)

  2. What a great idea! I love looking at everyones mantels! Fall is always a fun time for decorating!

  3. I didn’t link up (um, or even take a picture of my mantel, I mean fantel) but I DID change it up a bit for the changing seasons – took out the daisies and bright colored candles for reds, browns and pinecones. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. I’m so sad I don’t have a mantle or fantle! So many links . . . I’m gonna be so tired tomorrow:)

  5. Love the photos of your home! Beautiful! Thank you for the link party. I so enjoy seeing everyone’s creativity!

  6. Awesome blog I will love checking out all these mantels. Have a great weekend!

  7. I have spent my entire Sunday afternoon/evening clicking through all of these “fantels”. WAY better than participating in the football marathon taking place in my living room. Lots of great inspiration! Thank you!

  8. I’m late to the party but I’m here! And now I’m going to continue looking through all the inspiring mantels.

  9. Whew – didn’t think I would do it but I looked at all 264 mantels – got a TON of ideas and bookmarked way too many blogsites. Thanks Nester for holding the party and thank y’all who took part in it – what a delightful way to spend several evenings. While I was too late to take part in this ‘party’ I am hoping something similar is done for Christmas. The ideas were amazing. Our blog is finally back after a two year hiatus due to family health problems and I am ready to share our life again

  10. I have a mantel that has a cut out for a tv. I don’t want a tv in this room. Any ideas how to fill in the space. I have a mirror there right now.

  11. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after
    going through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.

    Regardless, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!

  12. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it is
    time to be happy. I have read this post and
    if I could I want to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions.
    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read even more things about it!

  13. Thank you for giving them this great knowledge, really thank you for sharing, hope you will have such great posts as this more.
