It won’t be long and we will all bid adieu to the scorching summer heat. Autumn is coming! If you love autumn like I do and cannot wait to welcome it with open arms, let me give you some fall mantle decorating ideas and inspiration to begin with. If you do not have any mantle, these decorating ideas will also be great to your long table or wide window pane for that extra definition.
You don’t have to spend so much to achieve most of these ideas. The key to decorating is to go through what you already have in your closet or crafty supplies. Just use colour schemes befitting of the season and probably add some lighting to the effect and there you have it, your very own fall mantle decor in style – and all within your budget!

The beautiful colors of autumn are very warm and inviting. It is nice to put something eclectic on your coffee table, dining table or any table top that will add warmth and coziness to the feel of your home.
You do not have to spend a fortune to be able to come up with something pretty to decorate your table tops. Most of the things you will need to complete the autumn look and feel of your eclectic decors are just right in your yard or nearby market.
Here are some ideas to start with:
- Grab some foliage from your backyard and arrange them in a clear vase. Put varying shades of yellow, orange, brown and red to depict the many colors of fall.
- If you live near a farm or cornfields or have access to them, ask farmers for few pieces of old cobs which are not suitable for consumption. Glue them together or attach wires and attach to a big candle. You now have a corn cob candle holder.
- Get some varying sizes of pumpkins and color some of them with gray and white. Put them on top of each other and place on your favorite table for added pizzazz.
- Do you have spare fabric felt of fall colors? Why not convert them into table runners but cutting out shapes of leaves and connect them together.

I have always wondered what s’mores means. I kept hearing it on the tv shows I have watched before but never knew how it looks and what it is exactly.
In layman’s term, s’mores are generally t
reats cooked over a campfire. A s’more is made of graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolates. They are stacked together to form a delicious treat. There are various ways of making a s’more but the most common way of making it is by heating a marshmallow over a campfire and putting the heated mallow in between chocolate slabs and topped with graham crackers. The heat coming from the marshmallow helps melt the chocolate, m
aking the sugary coating of the slightly molten mallow will add flavour to the whole treat.
Here is a simple recipe to make the perfect s’mores.
A chocolate bar (you may substitute with dark chocolate for a healthier choice)
How to make it is entirely up to you. Whether you want to heat it using campfire or a heated grill does not really matter much as long as you enjoy this yummy treat great for fall as the temperature cools down. Bon appetite!
