Holiday Mantel Ideas

Ok I held out as long as I could.....I have been thinking about decorating for Christmas for WEEKS now!! I tried not to go there until after Thanksgiving but I lost the battle. 

Sorry. 

I've been thinking about how I'm going to decorate the mantel in my new house. The fireplace is so gorgeous and of course the centerpiece of the room - that's a lot of pressure right there to do it right!

So I've been browsing around for inspiration...as we do....and I thought I'd share some of my favorites. 

And what did I discover about myself while browsing around?

I am definitely of the "less is more" mentality. 

There will be greenery. 

And there will be red. 

Enjoy!

  1. I absolutely adore every single one of these choices, so whatever ideas you pull from these gorgeous mantels will be wonderful! I am really taken with the second one and eyeing it for myself! Pinning a few too.
    Thank you for the inspiration!
    Have a lovely weekend, sweet Lady!

    1. Absolutely, Kim - of course my stockings are the ones we've had forever and don't match but that's quite alright in my book!!

    1. You have no idea!! These were the "simplest" mantels I saw online - there were some photos I was blown away by but there's just no way that's happening in my house! First of all I actually use my fireplace so I don't want anything that's a fire hazard....second of all I have a full time job!! :)
