Christmas Mantel

Maybe it's the explosions touches of glitter or the excitement of the holiday season, but I have had so much fun decorating the house for Christmas this year. I have drawn out the decorating process a bit this year and taken my time adding the finishing touches to every area of our home. The fireplace was no exception, and now it is finally ready for Santa to come down the chimney and be blinded stunned by all the Christmas sparkle!

As I mentioned here, the family room is decorated in silver, gold, and white. We recently had our family room and kitchen painted a very soft gray, and our kitchen is all white; so I wanted to carry the neutrals into the Christmas decor. 


I first draped a strand of garland over the mantel and wrapped a strand of mirrored garland from West Elm  throughout it. Then I layered various objects on top. (Please excuse the oh so chic ceiling fan)






I wanted varying heights of items. I started with the beaded reindeer from Homegoods and worked around it. I added a mercury glass candle holder from Target (last year) and placed a glittery gold ornament on top. Then I added the white and silver glittered present from Jo-Ann Fabric.





I stuck a few ornaments into the garland to add a little extra sparkle. Our white velvet Mongolian stockings are hung by glittery Christmas tree stocking holders from Hobby Lobby (last year). I absolutely love our new stockings from West Elm. They add just the right about of texture and lushness to the decor.



Centered on the mantel is a sparkly, silver "Merry Christmas" sign. The phrase "Merry Christmas" is very important in our home; we're not big on the "Happy Holidays" phrase around here ;) I also added these mercury glass votive holders from Target in front of the sign.







On the other end of the mantel I grouped three sparkly (shocker) Christmas trees at varying heights. I purchased the gold ones at A Christmas Affair this year, and the silver is one I purchased at Target last year. You also get a tiny sneak peak of our family room Christmas tree, which I will show on Thursday so make sure you check back!



I felt like the mantel was missing something, so I added a few pieces of real clippings to the garland.
