Transition into Fall Mantle

It is now officially Fall according to the calendar and I know everyone is busy busting out all the pumpkins, gourds and the rest of their fall decor. But it doesn't quite feel or look like fall yet here in Charlotte. It also doesn't seem like it is still summer either so I wanted to ease into fall decor with a transitional Fall Mantle.

I'm holding off on bringing out all my pumpkins and such so for now I've made a few tweaks to what  I had up for summer. I swapped out the yellow flowers in the vase for this mix of orange greenery/flowers and put out my "Fall" burlap banner instead of the "Shine" one. Oh and I feel like the globe can really be any season but it was a recent purchase (after lots of searching!) and I was ready to change out the LOVE sign and show off my vintage globe front and center to the left. Candles are the same as before.

My mom helped me arrange the orange flowers and "greenery"... not sure what to call that stuff. We stuffed a few plastic grocery bags down in there to be able to manipulate the stems how we wanted to and not have them fall to the side where the vase is a little wider.

Don't worry the pumpkins will be making an appearance in a few weeks!
