My Autumn Mantle And Video

Hi Ladies, today I would like to share my family room mantle decorated for Fall.
So, have you all been struck by the *fall* decorating bug yet? I have! ;)
This is my Autumn mantle. It's messy, imperfect, but I like it that way. I think it adds character, ha!
I used everything I had from previous years, but added the new candle sconces from Ross. 
I added pumpkins and acorns.
My everyday greenery was used as my base, and then I began to layer with my fall floral picks and garlands.
I like adding layers because it adds depth and texture.
I added Curly Willow branches for a rustic element.
I used fall arrangements in metal vases on each end of the mantle to add balance in relation to the TV.
I love these candle sconces and they were so cheap. :)
 The LED lights behind the flat screen (which were off in this photo) cast a beautiful shadowy effect at night onto the fall mix. 
 I love wooden acorns.
 Thanks for visiting and below is a quick video snippet of my fall mantle.

It's Autumn In August

Hi there! Yes, you read the title correct, it sure is Autumn in August over at...The Tuscan Home.
Every year, right before the kids go back to school, I get busy decorating for Fall. Join me, and I will share what I have completed around the house.
I have lots of metal and Iron wall decor, and all through the year, I simply change out the wreaths with the seasons.
I have a black hutch in the kitchen dining area. I love adding fall colors, because it looks cozy against the black backdrop.
On the top of my hutch I added a large basket and filled it with pumpkins and gourds. I added two fall leaf garlands and two berry garlands to add dimension.
Here is another example of adding a wreath to metal wall decor. In this photo I hung my wreath with wire ribbon.
In the family room, on a sofa table I added a few leaf plates.
Here is the family room mantle. I added a lit fall leaf garland and some berry garlands, too! I placed twig pumpkins in amongst the garland. 
I adore the the earthy, warm, fall colors throughout the house.  
I always have an Autumn Tree, so this year my theme is a Pumpkin Tree.
I used a large twig pumpkin as my tree topper, ha! I added tons of fall leaves, twig branches, and beige deco mesh and wired ribbon. 
Happy Harvest, y'all! ;)
In the living room I added two wooden pumpkins in amongst some greenery. 
In the kitchen, I filled up a huge glass canister with tons of multi-colored beans that you can buy at the grocery store. I placed some greenery in the beans and then layered it with some tall fall floral picks.  I took out my pumpkin wax warmer, and placed some "pumpkin spice" wax melts inside, can you smell the pumpkin now??? ;)
In the dining room, I hung a wreath in the window and placed an Autumn floral arrangement beneath it.
Here is the kitchen dining area with the hutch decorated for Fall.
In the office I sat a pumpkin on top of the greenery.
I love this family platter I found at Walmart two years ago.  I placed some sunflower floral picks just under the platter.
Last week, I found these two pretty cloches at Tuesday Morning and placed some Fall Potpourri inside the cloches, to add a splash of color.
In the dining room, I layered with pumpkins, leaves, gourds, and acorns...right around my candle centerpiece.
In this glass vase, I placed fall apples and acorns in around my candle.
 In this photo, I added a fall twig pumpkin that has berries, a small pumpkin, and a big leaf on it.
Here is the living room. I will share better pictures soon. It was hard to get a good shot with my iPhone.
I filled a large glass vase with rustic pumpkins and placed them around my candle.
Here is a shot of our dining room.
I'm in love with the super tall windows in the living room, it lets so much light in. :)
I decorated my mirror by hanging the letter R (for our last name) and added a fall berry garland at the top. I also decorated the home office, too! 
Well, although it's still summer, and I'm loving every second of it, I am also enjoying my warm, cozy, and earthy Autumn decor, during summer, ha! I know, I'm crazy-e!
Thanks for visiting! xo, ~Liz

Fall Broomstick

Hi there! Yesterday, while at the grocery store, I spotted a Fall Broomstick in the floral section of Safeway. I thought it was a cute idea for fall. So, I gathered my supplies and headed home to make one.
If you have a Safeway close by, you can pick up several different styles of leaves and dried ones, too! This is what I picked up!
 I got two different colors of ribbon, I love the silk ribbon, burlap would be another great idea, too!
 There are different aromatic broomsticks to choose from, I got the Pumpkin Cinnamon, it smells soooooo good!
You can use a hot glue gun, but I decided to use some garden wire instead, easy!
 Just tie your bundle of leaves together using the garden wire and finish off the look by tying your silk ribbon over the garden wire to conceal it. 
I double tied my bows.
 Isn't it a cute idea for Fall? Thank you Safeway! ;)  Of course, if you do not have a Safeway in your area, you can find these items at any craft store.
 I love the pop of color against the dark broomstick.
I may make another broomstick and hang two on my double French doors.
Well, I hope you like this idea, the creativity is endless.  If you make one, I would love to see it!
Thanks for visiting! xo, Liz

Kicking Off My New Fall Series, You Ready?

Hi there, friends! Today, I'm kicking of my new fall series with 2 cute Dollar Tree finds/ideas. Today, while at Dollar Tree trying to conjure up something cute and festive for Fall, I came across these little candle cupcakes.
How cute are these little cupcakes? The color orange is what drew me to them, perfect for Fall!
$4.00 (a dollar each for each cupcake) + a dollar for the bag of leaves = $5.00 for a simple idea, right?
See the candle wick? Simply pull it out, it comes out super easy!
Do you have a small cloche at home? If so, pull it out, even a cute dish or small decorative plate would work, too!
Grab a bag of fall leaves.
Place some leaves down and set the cupcakes on top, easy-peasy!
See, it's a pretty cute display for any kitchen, or table vignette. 
Ok, here is idea #2 below...
I had this cloche, and purchased the tiny wreath at the Dollar tree and set it inside the cloche.
Next, I added some moss on the inside of the wreath.
Dollar Tree has a new item this year, Fall Corn. I purchased 3 and placed them on top of the moss. It's all about layering.
I love the little beads on the corn.
(3) corns + 1 bag of moss + 1 wreath = $5.00
So, for $10.00 total for both ideas....CHEAP!!
Tomorrow my fall bins come out, so tons more ideas on the way! 
Thanks for visiting! 
xoxo, Liz
