Disclosure: I received a Pier 1 Imports gift card to facilitate this Fall Mantel Decorations Makeover. However all thoughts and experiences are my own.
About two years ago, we moved into our (new to us) house and once again began the process of making it into a home. It’s one of the things that Grambo and I love to do together. Whether a house is new or old, we love turning each room into our own and making it feel like a home.
Our house is over 40 years old so it does have a lot of character already. It also has something that Grambo and I never had on our list of must-haves… a fireplace. We haven’t used it yet and I don’t know if we will, but we have spent many hours pondering what to do with our mantel. It has proven to be a challenge. But recently we worked with Pier 1 Imports on a Fall Mantel Makeover!
Pier 1 Imports Fall Mantel Decorations Makeover
While that mantel above is beautiful and I’m in love with it. It sure didn’t start out that way! I would love to say that my fireplace mantel looks amazing every single day of the year. But there are days when it’s just plain… naked. We have a lot of holiday decorations for Halloween and Christmas. But what about those in between times when you just need something seasonal? That’s what we needed!
Meet my lonely mantel. September was far too early for Halloween decorations, yet I craved something beautiful to finish off the space.
It’s a lovely white mantle but it’s… lonely. It seems like wasted space when we don’t have any decorations for it. We do have a few pieces that are just neutral that we put up sometimes. But when the calendar starts to creep closer to the holiday season and pumpkins and fall leaves are around every turn, we get antsy.
Grambo and I knew that we needed some fall decorations. And we knew where we wanted to go. Pier 1 Imports is definitely one of our favorite stores to shop at when it comes to home decor. We invested in our gorgeous dining room table and chairs when we moved in and still adore them.
We also do a lot of Christmas decor shopping at Pier 1 each year. So, why not fall decor?
Why not fall is right! While Pier 1 has an amazing selection of Halloween decor right now, they also have an amazing variety of items that fall more into general autumn and harvest themes! So perfect for September and the stretch between Halloween and Thanksgiving! We had a difficult time deciding on a color theme at first.
But when we spotted the pumpkin while hunting for a wreath, followed by that gorgeous owl, we were inspired!
We knew the pumpkin was what would anchor the entire mantel makeover. It happened to be the perfect size for the space above the mantel. And no, Grambo is not horrified by the look. She was shocked when she loved it even more than she thought she would!
Once it was hung on the chimney with care, it was time for the little details. It’s the smaller pieces that really make a mantel. After a bit of placing items and moving them around, Grambo started to find an arrangement she liked. And it all started to come together.
It really is all in the details. We fell in love with the colors of the Pier 1 pieces. Though the store did have an entire section of pumpkins and candles that led to a color scheme that included a gorgeous blue silver color that I also loved. I think the items we selected worked well with the brick of our fireplace.
We plan to paint it one day. But not today! So our mantel decorations makeover from Pier 1 has come to the rescue! And the details all came together to bring new life to our fireplace!
