Christmas Mantel

Christmas time is here! This is my most favorite time of year. I love everything about Christmas, the meaning, the traditions, the music (Pandora radio's Christmas station is the best!), the scents (I have a 1803 Mistletoe Kisses candle burning right now, it smells so good.) the tastes (egg nog, peppermint & gingerbread, oh my!) and the sights. Speaking of sights, here is how my Christmas mantel turned out this year, 
I decided to go with neutrals, and natural elements with some sparkle added in. I am really enjoying the sparkles this year.

I found the boxwood wreath at Lowes, I plan to use it after Christmas also. I got a great deal on the burlap wired ribbon from Amazon.







I decided to keep my urns on the mantle for Christmas and added greens, lighted branches, silver twigs, and pheasant feathers. The silver twigs and pheasant feathers gave it the mix of natural and sparkle that I was wanting.



I found the gray satin bow pillow at Pier One, I like how the bow matches the gray velvet on the stockings.










To add the natural and sparkle mixed look again, I wove burlap ribbon and glitter trim through the lighted  garland on the mantle. The mercury and paper script snowflakes have the same effect, natural and sparkle. I found the little mercury tree sitting all alone and lonely at Marshall's for  $3.00, what a cutie!













More Christmas to come! Have a blessed day,

Kimberlee

  3. Hi Kimberly!

    When you were "prim" I didn't think your home could be more gorgeous BUT you have out done yourself again!!! Your new look is sooo pretty and your styling is just perfection.

    I look forward eagerly to your next post and more pictures of your beautiful home.

    Happy Decorating
    Sincerely, Jeannette

  4. Hi Kimberly! I just found you through a blog hop, and was instantly drawn to your white "shabby chic" decor! Love it! And, your "Fancy Shack" looks more fancy than shack to me, lol! Then again, I am a lover of white, and am working it into my home. Then, you add the Christmas decor and it takes it up ANOTHER notch on the happy scale!

    Speaking of Christmas, I'm running a Christmas giveaway over on my blog, and would love if you would stop by! Here's the link http://housepretty.blogspot.ca/2012/12/christmas-giveaway.html.

    1. Hello Cheryl, Thank you! Yes, I made the fireplace screen with my husband's help. It was made with $20.00 worth of wood from Home Depot, very easy project, I plan to do a tutorial post about it. :)

    2. I love the screen and was wondering the same thing (if you made it). I would very interested to hear about the process as I have been wanting to make one like that for my fireplace.
