Our Great Room Christmas mantel this year
is probably the most simplistic mantel that I have created.
I promised myself this year
that I am really going to downsize my Christmas decorations.
I did give many boxes of Christmas ornaments, florals and decorations
along with a couple of trees to Habitat last year.
However, I did keep these little trees!
I gathered the decorations that I knew I would definitely keep
and I started decorating from there.
Which included my crystal deer.
Birds are always a keeper.
Especially ones with sweet expressions.
I attached a few evergreen swags together to form a garland.
Added stockings and a snowflake ornament to embellish the stockings.
A wreath with a lacey burlap bow hangs high on the shutters.
Reticulated Ginger jars are filled with picks of artichokes and greenery.
I love using the thick faux evergreen swags throughout the house.
By connecting the swags together to form the garland, you get a much fuller result.
I have in the past been known to weave 2 garlands together
to get that fuller look.
Antique French Boot forms waiting on the hearth
to be warmed by the fire.
The tall slender candles seem to be a staple on the mantel.
They work well with the antique wood and iron shutters.
