Did you have a good weekend? How's your holiday décor going? Almost finished? Do you have your tree all set up? We're getting our tree next weekend but the rest of the house is ready to go.
It's week 2 of the "613 Holiday Special" and this week the Ottawa ladies and I are talking holiday decorating. Yeah!
Everywhere you look, in every store, there are tons of options for decorating your home for the holidays. Silver, gold, blue, purple, black...you name it.
I wanted to share my mantle décor with you. I typically have a relatively shiny silver and/or gold tree that stands in the corner right next to the mantle so I didn't want anything too fussy on it. I always usually go glam, I just love all that sparkle and glitter. At first I wanted to go white and feathery with lots of sparkle. However, I'm really digging the classic, yet country cozy feel. Remember my monogram wreath? I wanted to carry that traditional feel onto the mantle.
So, here we go...
Before you go out and look for something to put on your mantle for the holidays, take a look around your house first and see what you already have. You would be surprised what you can work with....
Essentially, the only new thing I bought this year for the mantle were the flanking Ikea lanterns. I love that I can use them on the holiday mantle but also move them around the house throughout the year. Look around your house, I know you have items you can use.
I would love to see your fresh.fabulous.sophisticated mantles. Please share them with me. Did you go glam? Traditional? Outside the box?
