I love decorating for the holidays and today I'm sharing our Christmas Mantel. I used to go hog wild with the glitzy ornaments, branches soaked in sparkles and glitter, poinsettias everywhere etc. But for the last couple years, I've kept the look and feel of our holiday decor simple and classic.
Well, hello there little dudes. Santa and his Reindeer were a purchase from Pottery Barn Kids a few years back. They always seem to find their way into our Christmas Holiday Card each year, too. Which reminds me, I need to take that picture ASAP or our friends will be getting a Happy New Year card instead!
The J-O-Y wood letters were a find a Michael's Craft Store. I thought about painting them but I kind of like the natural look.
I've also got into the habit of using fresh garland on the mantel. This Cedar Garland comes as a package deal along with a couple poinsettias and a Christmas Tree from the nursery up the street.
Hope this puts you into the Holiday Spirit! I'm linking to the Christmas Cheer party over at Ten June today. Come check it out - so much inspiration for your holiday mantels!
