Hello, friends! Are you ready for some fall decor inspiration? Today kicks off the first day of the 5th annual Fall Ideas Tour.

This year we have 29 home bloggers and we’re sharing our favorite ideas for your mantels, tables, and porches, as well as some wreath and DIY/craft ideas. Every day has a different topic so you’ll want to see what’s new each day.

I’ll be sharing all of them on my facebook page and my instagram. Follow me there to see them all. And be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to see all of the bloggers and sneak peeks of their fall ideas.

If you’re visiting here for the first time today, WELCOME! You can get to know me a little better here → About Me.


Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when redecorating a space. Finding a piece or an image that you love can help get you going in the right direction.

For our fall fireplace decor, I found inspiration in a couple of items including my favorite fall throw blanket. The colors are rich and warm and make me think of roasting s’mores next to a fire pit. I used it as a sort of table runner on the coffee table in the living room.

Another item I drew inspiration from was this pretty pottery bowl. There’s something about the earthiness of pottery that calls out to me these days. I’ve actually been taking a pottery class at our local art center and have made some nice pieces, but not this one.

My youngest daughter found it at a local shop that was going out of business and we got it for $4. Isn’t that a steal?? Anyway, I’ve been loving blue lately and wanted to incorporate this into our fall decor.

If you follow me on instagram then you know that I was in Austin, Texas earlier this month to help our oldest daughter move there for her new job. We stayed several days and I got to visit a couple of places I’ve wanted to see, including one in LaGrange called Old World Antieks. I bought this large blue demijohn in a crate and wanted to use it on our hearth.

On the drive back home from Austin, my husband took me to the Magnolia Silos to help cheer me up. Needless to say, I was pretty sad about leaving our daughter behind where she’ll be more than 1,000 miles away from us. But she’s very excited about her new job and life there so I’m happy about that.

The interstate goes right through Waco so it was an easy stop. I fell in love with and bought a few of these pretty sienna eucalyptus branches, along with a few other goodies. I love the subtle but rich hue of the leaves. They’re perfect for fall so I stuck some into the demijohn and added some to the mantel as well.

Mixing dried and faux florals

Using flowers in our decor is something I love to do, especially hydrangeas.

These dried ones had various shades of blue that blend with the other blue items I’m using in here. Have you ever dried hydrangeas? It’s so easy! You can see how I dry mine here → How to dry hydrangea blossoms.

I used them in the center and then added faux sunflowers, rice stems, berry sprays, and some of the sienna eucalyptus.

The reproduction vintage ceiling tiles on the wall are from my shop and have been up here since the spring. The candle lanterns and wood bead garlands are also from my shop and add some balance and finish off the mantel.

An old chippy corbel and a rusty section of gate add some character to the hearth.

Here’s a peek into the dining area where you can get a glimpse of my fall decor in there. I’ll be sharing a fall tablescape soon so stay tuned for that.

  1. I have been looking forward to seeing your fall mantel and as always, you didn't disappoint. I love how you used dried florals on your mantel this year accented with the wooden beads. Your fireplace hearth looks great with your new blue demijohn in a crate, blanket scarf, and pumpkins. I know you hated to leave your daughter in a big city so far away from home but at least you now have a great place to visit. Lucky you for getting to go to Waco. I'd love to do that someday. Thanks for hosting the tour this week. I'm looking forward to reading the posts each morning over coffee.

    1. Thank you so much, Paula. Yes, I have a fun place to visit now that she lives in Austin. So glad you're on the tour! I always love your decor.

  2. Angie, you mantel is gorgeous as always. I adore that blue bowl you found. The color intensity is amazing. It really looks great with the soft warm colors of your throw. Blue is my favorite color and dried blue hydrangea always look good but I'm so glad to see that you were able to pair with traditional fall colors of burnt sienna and shades of orange. Thanks for hosting this fun event.

    1. Thanks Patti! The blue bowl was such a great find. It has a russet color in the middle that makes it perfect for fall. I always love it when I can use hydrangeas and was glad the blues worked in this year's decor. So happy you're touring with us!

  4. Angie – your fall mantel is beautiful. It looks so wonderfully vintage and Old World. Your inspiration pieces are perfect. We too love blue and what a steal on the pottery bowl. Don't even get us started on the demijohn 😍. It's the icing on the mantel LOL. How sweet of your husband to cheer you up with a shopping stop in Waco! We can't thank you enough for hosting, and including us, in this annual tour! Can't wait to see what everyone else created!

    1. Thank you for your sweet words, Susie. I'm not a minimalist for sure, but try not to go overboard with my decor. It's hard to find the middle ground sometimes because I have way too many things that I love, lol. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you, Marlene! I rearranged things over and over until I got it just the way I wanted. I won't tell you how much time I spent on it, lol. Have a great week!

    Enjoy your week


    1. Thanks Cindy! I just couldn't resist that demijohn. And the throw has been one of my favorites for years. You can never go wrong with hydrangeas, in my opinion! Have a great week.

    1. Thanks Lora! I wanted color but not to bold so that throw was the perfect place to start. Glad you're joining us on the tour! Have a great week.

  11. Angie your mantel is gorgeous! It's a beautiful summer into fall transition. That vase/crate is stunning and something I'm sure you'll use throughout the seasons.

    1. Thanks Maryann. Since the leaves are still green and the temps are in the 90's, I can't ignore that it's still summer. And I just couldn't leave the vase behind. So glad your on tour with us!

  12. I always love your fall decor, Angie! I'm really nuts over the demijohn in a crate! Love that you're taking pottery classes. Can't wait to see some of your pieces!

    1. Thanks, lady! I couldn't pass up the demijohn. And my pottery class is my weekly therapy. I'll probably share some of my projects one of these days. So happy your on the tour!

  13. I know that Envy is one of those Seven Deadly Sins…but man…I am coveting that Demijohn! It is gorgeous! And what a great idea to add some warmth and texture to your coffee table with that lovely blanket.

    You surely can't go wrong blending blues and oranges/yellow/browns…your home looks just lovely.

    Thanks again for herding us all! You Rock!



    1. Thanks Lynn! I've admired those large demijohns for years and couldn't leave this one behind, lol. And the blanket makes an appearance somewhere each fall because I love the colors. Happy to have you on tour with us!

  14. This is gorgeous I love the crate on the fireplace with the glass jug, it is so cool. Thank you so much for including me this awesome blog hop.

    1. Thank you Jen! It's not your typical fall decor, but I thought the colors worked out great. Sometimes you just have to try something different.

    1. Thank you! I love color but seem to tire of really strong color quickly so I usually go with muted tones.

  15. I always love to see how you decorate your fireplace for the seasons. This one doesn't disappoint. It's beautiful!
    Thanks so much for putting together this awesome blog hop.

    1. Thank you Kristi! It's a fun area to decorate and I enjoy seeing it when I walk into our home.

  16. Your fireplace mantel is gorgeous, Angie! I adore the soft muted tones and the lovely demijohn sets the stage. I also love how you mixed dried florals with faux to create a gorgeous spray on the mantel. I've got to show this to my daughter who whitewashed her brick fireplace a few months ago. I know she'll love how you decorated it.

    1. Thank you, Marie! I like to do something a little different each year and the demijohn was a great starting point. And I'm drawn to flowers any time of the year and was happy to be able to work them into the decor.

  17. Everything is so pretty, Angie!!! I'm envious of that crated demijohn!!! A great way to kick off a week of Fall Ideas!!! Thanks for everything you did to pull this tour together!

    1. Thanks Doreen! I brought it home with me no knowing exactly what I was going to do with it but I think it looks right at home on the hearth. So happy to have you on the tour!

  18. Your Fall theme is so warm and inviting! I love the touches of blue and especially the dried flowers! I'm working on those myself but not quite there yet! Love Hydrangeas!

    1. Thanks Kim! I'm drawn to blue these days and was happy to be able to work it into my fall decor. And I adore hydrangeas too!

    1. Thanks Kathy! I bet you could find one easier than me. You have such great places to shop near you.

  19. Angie,
    Your home is just so gorgeous! I adore all of the traditional fall colors against the soft backdrop. It's all so cozy. I adore that shot from the fireplace back to the dining area!

    1. Thanks, Christy! Our living room is very open to the kitchen and dining area so I try to make them all work together. It's a challenge sometimes though!

  20. What a cool place your daughter moved to! That demijohn is just awesome on your hearth and I'm seriously crushing on that wood bead garland on your mantel. Thanks for hosting the fall tour each year, Angie. I'm always honored to join!

    1. She really does live in a cool place. There's so much to do there! I'm loving my new/old demijohn and couldn't resist hanging the wood beads on the mantel. So happy your touring with us again!

  21. I LOVE everything, all that yummy texture and those neutrals. Also, so clever to use that gorgeous blanket as a table runner, I'll have to steal that one! 😉 Thanks so much Angie for organizing such a wonderful tour! xooxoxox

    1. Thanks, Laurie! Textures and neutrals are always a good idea, right? And the blanket had to make an appearance somewhere. It was a nice way to add some color to the table. Happy to have you on tour with us !

  22. I just absolutely love your fireplace at every season! Thanks so much for hosting this blog hop. Loving all the projects and bloggers I am discovering.
