Halloween Mantel

This fall the white pumpkins have been my favorite. I am getting excited for trick-or-treating because this year we will actually be home to pass out candy.

Josh decided to start the first fire of the season while I was decorating the mantel. I love the cozy feel of a real fire.

I made the banners using old book pages. I cut out all of the letters by hand. I really need to get a machine to do this for me.

As I mentioned before, my parents own a pumpkin patch, so all of my fall goodies are free! I even got some of those pretty mums for my birthday.

If you live in northwest Indiana, or the Chicago-land area I recommend checking out Kregel's Pumpkin Patch. They have hay rides to the pumpkin patch, a petting zoo, corn maze, pony rides, the farm market and more!


  1. love those pumpkins around the fireplace and one place I love to visit in the fall is the orchards come see what I shared at

  2. Great job decorating the mantel, that fireplace is lovely. How cool that your parents own a pumpkin patch, from the photos it looks fantastic, a fun place to spend the day with the family.

  3. I loved your mantel! The banners were my favorite!


Thanks for visiting! All of your nice comments make me smile!
