Easy Fall Decor

Today is the last entry in the It's Fall Y'all Link Party. 
Sarah from Thirty Decor Chick is hosting Easy Fall Decor.
So easy and simple it is gonna be. I have not yet posted my transformation of the buffet I redid with tin foil but the top decor is what I am showing you today.
I took 3 candle holders I got at a yard sale for a $1.00, repainted them to match the buffet, added three pumpkin colored candles to sit in one corner. 

For the middle I took subway art in shades of black and grey , highlighted certain things in orange.

At the other end is a simple orange vase with a orange glittery fern and grass pick.  A glitter green twine ball peeks out underneath for a pop of a different color.
It had to say fall while matching my buffet . 

And the over all look:

                                                   And closer:

I hope you stop by and take a look at the entries. 

Fall Party

I 'll be back to share my furniture re dos next...
Until then ...

Fall-lious Mantle

Dear Autumn,

I love your beautiful colors, the heavenly smells of apple & cinnamon and pumpkin. The carmel apples, candy corn, bowls of soups and chili. The cool crisp days and nights. Wait STOP!
Of course I forgot I live in Florida! No cool crisp days and nights ! Darn It!,  at least not until November.. Ok.. I can dream.. but onto my fall mantle. I can pretend to have beautiful fall colors, like the leaves that are trailing down the side of my wood and iron centerpiece. Among those leaves are flowers in a warm shade of pumpkin, green, pine cones, feathers in zebra stripe lime green & orange, and a jute ribbon runs through out. Subway art,  a gorgeous owl, pumpkins and a large initial , completes the look on top. Underneath grapevine garland is mount to finish my fall-ish look.!!
Now if I could just get the weather to cooperate and cool off....

Over all look
