I love to use my Oriental porcelain anytime I can in my decorating.  This year, the mantle is full of treasures that I have acquired.

The first piece I placed on the mantle was my vintage birdcage that I received from a dear friend. I gathered some of the smaller pieces to insert into the cavity of the birdcage.

A ginger jar, a planter and a vase anchored the left side of the mantle.

A large jar holding dried tiger lily stems sits on the floor to give some balance.  You will notice that I added our West Point plate(which isn't Oriental) and another vase by the mantle clock.

The plant is placed in the perfect spot to get the morning sun.

I would be happy to leave this mantle up until Christmas.  You might just see some pumpkins pop up in the fall.  The oranges and deep blue marry so well together.
