@Tigerlynn:  Here are a few fall type ideas for the fireplace










The only thing I could think of really to cover the pictures is if you did some sort of wall draping like this





Depending on how much work you want to put into you might be able to make a ribbon wall to somewhat cover them….but not sure if it would completely




I would just leave the lanterns as is on the wall …..no one will notice and I seriously don’t think anyone will notice the pictures either!

@Tigerlynn:  for the pictures, go to Staples or Kinko and get either pics of the two of you or your parents’ wedding pictures (if appropriate) enlarged as engineers prints. They are printed on very thin paper- as large as 3×4′ for $7. get them printed just larger than the inside dimension of your frames.

Use spray adhesive to attach the pics to a thin sheet of foamcore or luan cut a smidge larger than the inside dimesnion of the frames. You will be able to bend the pic a little and place it into the frame without using glue or anthing else.


I don’t think you need to decorate the lanterns (?sconces) but you could hang a wreath on them if you chose to.

You could also just tuck a branch of autumn leaves or berries behind each lantern, or make a little swag of leaves, wheat, pheasant feathers etc and hang it below each lantern.
