 Christmas MantelBeautiful Christmas Mantel I had to link up as I have a mantel in my home that has a special story associated with it.  This mantel in my dining room is just the mantel, it is not attached to the wall, there is no fireplace behind it.

How I Decorate My Mantel For Christmas

Christmas MantelElegant Christmas MantelWhen balancing large finish elements in the home, it is best to use height and find proportionate scaled decor as seen in the mantel piece.  For homes with such ornate finishes and furnishings, remember that a small amount of holiday decor will go a long way.  Allow the furnishings and holiday decor to work off of one another, rather than smother the beauty of their individual details.

My 2011 Christmas Mantel ~ Going Natural


 Christmas MantelGorgeous Gold and Silver Christmas MantelLast year our holiday mantel was decorated asymmetrical with lots of color, vintage ornaments and traditional fir & pine garland. As you can see, this year’s Christmas mantel is symmetrical, monochromatic and frankly more elegant. The Lee Industry arm chairs in chartreuse flanking the fireplace inspired the mantel’s color palette of greens and whites with splashes of gold and silver.

Create a traditional swag on the mantel with surprisingly nontraditional materials. Thin tree branches and birch bark shavings make up this rustic swag in the living room. Red berries and frosted Christmas trees in varying heights lend holiday touches to the natural arrangement, which could be used throughout the fall and winter seasons.

But you can go beyond just placing a jarred candle atop the hearth. Pearson suggests thinking outside the box when it comes to what you can use. “An upside down wine glass can become a beautiful candlestick,” she says. Just be sure to drink that vino before you give up your glass!
