Decorating a mantel for fall

I finally had some time to start getting my fall decor up.
I had some help from my Granddaughter Ava and she
did an awesome job painting and shading wood pumpkins.
She is a little artist in the making. I gave her and her friend
painting lessons the other day and she knocked it out of
the park! I have only completed my manel and hope to
have the rest of my decor up this weekend. I've included
a picture of my unfinished china cabinet. If any of you
have any idea's to help me complete my China cabinet,
please leave me your suggestions in comments. Ok,
Here's my finished mantel. Click on pictures to enlarge.

These are the wood pumpkins Ava painted, do you see the shading?
She did an awesome job! I was so proud of her, it was her first time

Those are gorgeous!!! She did a wonderful job!!!

And... I have a very long shelf (it's my version of a mantle) that needs you to work some magic on it. :) Heck - bring your assistant!!!
