New Fall Colors Mantle

Who says fall has to be orange??? Not me.... The new fall colors have inspired my mantle decor. I did a twist on fall colors and brought in purple and butterscotch. I recently re did my decor in three of my rooms. I started with my black wrought iron piece as my background, added two tall purple vases, bronze and goldish pumpkins. Then added eucalyptus, in purples and bronzes, some purple and brown grasses and puff balls ( no clue what real name is). Then some cat tails, peacock feathers, until I got the fullness I wanted. And bam! I have my mantle decorated for fall.
In front of my fireplace is my wood holder ( empty, sorry couldn't find any here yet) so pretend there is...ok? A very old bellows and tall candle holders with candles I emblished with velvet and bling, plus a tall urn with purple creepy looking plant in it. And there you have it , all prettified up for fall.

Butterscotch & Purple-licious Fall Decor

I love the hot new colors for fall this year, so much so that I have decided to incoporate them in my house, which includes the front porch. Anything with purple in it, well... is right up my alley. After all purple is my favorite color. So I started with one of the bistro tables and a chair from my back yard. I covered it in a pretty butterscotch table cover that I made. Also the matching pillow, both a trimmed in a pretty green fringe.
On top of the table I arranged a basket with purple florals and grasses, next to a finial, and put my scroll iron work behind the table for visual interest.On my front door is my wreath, and next to the front door is an urn with a gazing ball with more purple florals arranged around it.

Then in the other corner is a faux light pole with a purple vase in it. Around the bottom is my coleus and grasses, to add more interest.
And this is what greets you when you walk up to the front door:
