Are you holiday ready? Christmas is only 28 days away. BUT, it's time to start decorating your beautiful spaces for the season. I've teamed up with Wayfair.ca (I've shared my love for all their home decor and furniture with you here and here) to give you some ideas for creating the most gorgeous holiday mantel. If you are lucky enough to have a mantel to decorate then it needs to be FABULOUS during the holidays. There is no better way to create instant holiday impact.
So, take everything off the mantle and start with a clean slate. This is also a great time to do any paint touchups on your mantel if it is painted.
Decorating for the holidays can be really overwhelming. Do you go traditional? Glam? Minimal? Gold? Silver? My recommendation is to start with one piece and build from there. For me, it was a faux pine garland. I bought it a couple of years ago and have used it in different ways but this year I wanted it on the mantle. So, up it went. I'm really digging the rustic glam look lately and love that this allows you to have the traditional feel and glitz it up with glam pieces.
These silver/gold glitter trees are tall and oversize and anchor the mantle. Aren't they puurdy?
The stag head has floated between my living and dining room all year. They're very trendy right now (on the wall or standing) and super versatile.
Take a step back. Look to see what's missing, what's too busy. I felt like a little colour was needed so Mr. Stag got some danglers. Rose gold is still hot! hot! so think about adding it to your Christmas decor. I think I'm going to add some rose gold ornaments to my tree this year. Girly and glam. I also love me some gold mercury glass ornaments.
To continue with the antlers, I added a textured antler wreath to the mirror. This boxwood wreath is also beauty! Classic. This wreath has a ton of texture, lights up and bonus-on sale!
Don't forget to add light to your mantel. String lights and VOILA! A fresh.fabulous.sophisticated Christmas mantel.
Once your mantel is done, you will hopefully have a theme for decorating the rest of your house. I know it's put me in the decorating spirit. It might feel early, but I promise you, the Christmas parties and shopping will be here before you know it!

I would love to see your holiday mantels. Please share them with me.
