You guys, it’s so close to Christmas that it’s literally insane. This year seems to be going by even faster than usual. That being said… ya’ll I have failed to show you so many areas of our house decorated for Christmas, one being our front living room. I haven’t shown you really any of the Christmas decor up there & to be honest it’s not even “done”. I’m slacking ya’ll! Thank you for still loving me. Well, today I was playing around with the mantel & I styled it two different ways so I wanted to show you guys both styles today to hopefully inspire you & maybe even make you feel a little more festive, this is my version of how to decorate a mantel for Christmas.
The mantel itself is an antique find & above the chippy white mantel I have some Chippy architectural salvage above it. The first way I styled the mantel is an antique gold mirror in the center of the mantel with a gold hoop wreath hanging from it that I found at Target. The garland is actually two pieces that I found at our shop & pieced together on the mantel. Those stockings? They are my favorite & I actually used them for both looks. They are from Crate & Barrel [HERE] & those name tags are are from an etsy shop [HERE].
The second look is my favorite. The mantel, the salvage, the garland, the stockings, & the name tags all stayed the same. But I switched out that antique gold mirror for another wreath from Target that I believe was from their fall collection, but it looks perfect for winter as well. I added some wood bead garland on top of the greenery to add more texture. & to top off the whole look I added some antique silver cups with bottle brush trees. A simple look, but as always it’s cozy.
I will be back later to share the rest of this space with you, but I thought I would show you just a little insight to me decorating our mantel today. What do you think?! I could have shared five more ways because once you give me a mantel.. my issue is I come up with too many ways to style it. Let me know what you think in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. Thank you guys SO MUCH for stopping by the blog.. it means the world to me. xx\
