A day late, but I was too busy eating turkey to post!
Now that it the crisp Fall air has finally settled in, its time to get those fireplaces roaring again! I think that sitting in front of the fire at the end of a long day is possibly one of my favorite things.
And because the fireplace is usually the focal point in most rooms, decorating it for the Fall is just one more way to welcome in the best season of the year! Here are the 3 key elements to a perfectly balanced and festive fireplace mantle…
Usually a large mirror or piece of art is the best place to start.
Adding weight to the sides of the centerpiece is necessary to balance out the mantle. Accessories such as candlesticks or twigs in a vase is a great way to add weight (and height). Even hanging a collection of smaller pieces of art on the sides of your centerpiece is a creative idea!
Filler can be anything from books, to smaller plants or vases, or seasonal fillers like leaves or pumpkins! Usually placing a collection of objects looks great.

FINALLY! The new Home Goods/ TJXX opened up in Georgetown! 9/8 was their grand opening and you know I was right there waiting to get in. You know me, I went straight past all the clothes and into the Home Goods side of the store.
I think that my favorite part is the lobby! I love the mirrors leading down the escalator, so funky. The whole store is vibrant and bright, and of course, all of the (lets be honest) cheap fall and Halloween products are so fun.
Being in there got me so excited about Halloween, I mean, how could it NOT? Its only September still, right?
And how cute is the wrapping paper? Only $2.99?! Are you serious! I had to buy a few.
I love the mercury glass too, I need some in my house!
What fabulous finds have you come across at Home Goods lately?
