Spice Up Your Fireplace for Fall
It’s almost impossible for the autumn season to escape notice, between the multi-colored leaves, cooler weather, and pumpkin spice lattes. If you spice up your fireplace for fall, it adds to the delights of the season. Fall also happens to be like a last-minute call for chimney services from Guardian Chimney Sweep if you live in the Conroe or Houston TX areas.
Once winter arrives, the demand for qualified chimney sweeps like the certified chimney professionals at Guardian is typically greater than at any other time throughout the year. Before or after you decorate your fireplace for fall, our chimney professionals can get you ready for even colder temperatures. Meantime, ideas to spice up your fireplace for fall are below.
Create a Spillover of Foliage
A great fall fireplace theme is to bring the outdoor excitement inside. Spotlight your favorite fall leaf color by placing nature-inspired vases on the mantel and filling them with what appear to be branches bursting with eye-pleasing autumn growth. To one side, allow a seeming vine or trail of falling leaves to spill from the mantel to the hearth floor. Add clever placement of pumpkins, cabbages, and squash in complementary colors to complete the look.
Create a Vertical Planter
Planters on walls are popping up everywhere. Why not place a fall-themed vertical planter on your fireplace mantel? Sticking with the very outdoorsy theme here, place elements of a fall wilderness in a shallow wooden box. Like a wreath decorator gone rogue, fill the planter with an appealing mixture of moss, leaves, small pumpkins, and winding vines. Add skeleton candles and a retro lantern to the mantle to evoke the eeriest scenes from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a classic for the Halloween season.
White Farmhouse Fireplace Décor
Elegance is at the forefront if you go with white farmhouse fireplace décor. Autumn leaves in browns and light shades of green are subtly displayed, as they are tucked in – in quiet splendor – among the other elements of the fall scene. Those decorative features include:
- A wood-framed large-print book page, such as a quote from The Haunted Mansion.
- A larger empty wooden frame behind the framed quote.
- Place a few books in light fall colors among an assortment of off-white pillar candles.
- For the hearth floor, fill a rustic wooden box with pumpkins in various shades of white.
- Situate a decorative wooden broom to the side—one that has been made full using twigs as well as straw.
A Fall Spread on your Fireplace Mantel
Thanksgiving, for many, is the highlight of the fall season. Create a mantel scene with imagery that simulates a bountiful spread on the family table. Place walnuts and tiny pumpkins in a bronze wire basket. Fill a small bronze platter with seasonal vegetables, as well. Add fall-colored taper candles in a bundle and, for a backdrop, a bronzed serving platter. For height, place an acorn branch in a bronzed milk pitcher. Add fullness with a shallow golden vase laden with autumn blooms and leaves.
