Halloween Mantel with Black and White

Jeeves the butler is back again for some Halloween fun! He is flanked by two tall topiaries from Grandroad.

I thought it would be great fun to add my Mackenzie tote, named Miss Lola in the mix.  She fits right in with the color scheme.

Black and white fills the mantel this year.  Mr and Mrs. Pumpkinhead join in the fun as well, along with the black velvet pumpkins.

These fabulous Halloween Harper Topiaries are lovely.  I kept debating if I wanted to order them.  Every time, there were on sale, I would add them to my cart.  There they would sit, until the sale was over.  I did this for quite some time, until one day, I saw a fantastic sale I could not resist.

I decided to get creative with my Mackenzie Childs ice cream bowls.  I used one as a base and turned the other upside down to create a candle base.

This one I used just 1 bowl for a pedestal look.
The topiaries are pictured on the Grandroad site in urns.  Something to think about and add. You can find me at some of these parties.
I’m joining the Hauntingly Beautiful Decor Halloween Link Party and you can too!

  1. Oh Linda, your mantel looks so awesome for Halloween. Love that butler fellow. It's always such a pleasure to see your holiday d├ęcor. I went to Pottery World this morning, but there was a landscaper using his blower all over the place, so I'll go back later. I wanted to see if they have Christmas stuff out yet? I love all the black and white you have for Halloween, it looks fabulous.

    love, ~Sheri

  13. I am so glad you pulled the switch and bought those, Linda. They are fabulous and certainly not something you will see everywhere you go. I love your whole mantle and the black/white decor you are using this year. Very Mackenzie Childs all the way around. I have love their stuff since the first time I saw it years and years ago-even though I don't have much of it in my home...(unless it comes to basics in clothes-lol)

  14. I am loving the black and white! My DIL did her whole house black and white this year and I fell in love with Grandin Road's black and white.
