So the only thing I don’t love about my house, besides the unfinished parts, is the fact that I don’t have a mantle. I envy all of those beautiful mantel decorations that I always see so this year I treated some of the shelves I have in my home just like you would a mantle. Problem solved!  This one is in the room where we spend the most time and it is one of my favorite fall vignettes.

It actually sits above our TV and I thought it was the perfect focal point for my fall decorations.  Who needs a mantle anyway?  (Don’t worry, Santa still gets in okay.)

decorating shelves for fall

Because I don’t necessarily go overboard when it comes to decorating, (partly because I don’t have that much fall decor stored up…yet,) I decided to focus on a few key places on the shelves.  That way there is one big statement rather than a lot of little spots here and there.  So I stuck to the middle shelf and just added a few things to one shelf on each side. Oh and that big pumpkin thing at the bottom is where my lil’ lady has a ton of fun making different felt pumpkin faces.

I printed out this awesome free fall printable over at Nest of Posies.  It added the perfect focal point to my “mantle” and was so cheap to have printed!  Then I just added some splashes of orange with some fall leaves that I literally bent around a wire hanger made into a circle, and mini pumpkins.  I also made the gold leaf garland and that cute little scarecrow is a must have on my shelf this time of year cause my lil’ lady and I made it together a few years back.

In the rest of the living room, I kept it pretty simple by adding just a few more splashes of orange with some graphic orange zippered pillow covers that I made!

I’m sorta digging the orange with my blue and grey color scheme, aren’t you?

You can also see the kitchen from this room, so let’s head that direction!

In my kitchen, I applied the same rule of focusing on one spot, rather than the entire kitchen.  I have a few open shelves that worked perfectly for this.

So I whipped out my favorite Thanksgiving sign and added a few touches of that bright orange color that I love so much with some fake flowers and mini pumpkins!

So we were just in the back of my house, which is where we spend the most time, but if you walk toward the front of my house you’ll see the dining and living room.  I just completed my dining room last week so it it is officially ready for some family gatherings and setting a table is one of my favorite things to do.

I kept with the bright orange, but added some gold in to make it a tid bit fancy, but still comfortable.

I love how this table turned out and the gold accents on the centerpiece and my DIY concrete place card holders are just the pizzaz I was going for.

This table is my favorite part of the entire fall home tour!  It is just so pretty!

Ok.  Rip me away from the dining table and let’s head into or just turn around and look at the living room.

Fall shelf decorations

I just added a few sprinkles of fall on my floating shelves, like the Thankful String Art that I made last year.  I don’t know why I didn’t think to put it here last year, but it is the perfect spot.

I also switched out a photo for another fall printable from my very talented friend Alexis at Persia Lou.  You can get yours right here.

My first thought of doing a fall home tour was a bit scary, but then I realized that I’m probably not the only one who adds just a touch of fall to their home.  It can be done in such a simple way and this bright orange fits us just perfectly since it never really is that cold where we live anyway.  It is still fun and fresh, but of course fall.

I hope you had a fun time poking around my house and there is plenty more to see!  In fact, there is a whole list below that will take you through the homes of some amazing bloggers that are ready for fall!
