White and Simple Mantle

I really don't have a mantle, so I use my buffet as a substitute. If you visit me often you know it's constantly changing with the seasons. I decided to try something simple and white so I pulled out my white pumpkins, my rooster, some old books and a piece of luggage that I painted a while ago I added  faux wheat, grasses and berries and put it all together and came up with this;





Later I'll share my side table. That's it for now, Thanks for stopping by. I'll be joining these great parties this week.

  1. I love your all white arrangement! I don't have a mantle either so I use the bookcase in my living room to showcase my pretties! Just realized you were from NJ, I'm not too far I guess in SE PA!

  3. There is nothing simple about this. It has depth and heights and textures, and most of all it is beautiful!

  5. I really like how the all white looks. That was a wonderful idea to paint the luggage white. It really adds a nice mix yet it all ties together.

  7. I don't have a mantle either so I use my sofa table and an armoire I have in my entry to change with the seasons. I love the all white Fall look. Very creative and such an elegant vignette. Thanks for sharing and leaving a comment on my blog. I found you on Pinterest! What fun we can have sharing ideas.

  11. That looks very pretty, Karen! I love that little suitcase and how you used it to raise the one pumpkin up. I have a mantel but it is kind of narrow for decorating, so I just add a few pumpkins in to my regular decor. I did decorate the piece we use as a sort of buffet in our dining area. That probably has more decorations than the mantel!

    Now I'm tempted to pull out the white spray paint and paint all my fall decorations!

  22. This is such an elegant look for your buffet, Karen. I love that you painted that suitcase--what a great idea to change out the look but keep the character of the piece! Both the mirror frame and the window frame are gorgeous as well.

  27. Linked over from DIY by Design - LOVE, LOVE the white color scheme. The little piece of luggage is the perfect touch.
    I don't have a mantel either, but substitute a sofa table for my changing vignettes.
