The second half of our trip was spent in the Smoky Mountains. We were lucky enough to stay at The Swag, which I would recommend to anyone, hands down!
As you will see, the location and scenery were outstanding. It's hard to notice the Fall decor in a situation like this, but it's there, and it's done simply and beautifully.

With a view like this, you don't need a lot of decorative adornment
Sometimes simple is best
I love how the orange of the pumpkins stands out against all the weathered mountain wood and stone.
The decorations here really highlight nature's beauty and the simplicity of it all. A couple of stunning gourds speak volumes.
I've tried to keep this principle in mind while decorating my Fall mantel this year. Hopefully I will be able to keep the theme running throughout my home. Check back tomorrow to see more of my season updates.
