Winter Mantel Featuring A Magnolia Garland

Hello Dear Readers!

I hate to admit this but I am still de-Christmasfying the house.

I have two more trees to take down and then call it a day.

The first thing that was removed was the Christmas decor on the mantel.

That came down first as it was fast and easy to “dis-mantel”

The mantel is also the first area that was transitioned from Christmas to Winter.

I knew what I was going to do as I received something beautiful right before Christmas.

It was a gorgeous magnolia garland from the fine people of The Magnolia Company.

I won this garland through a giveaway campaign that they were offering on Instagram. Yay!

Due of time constraints, I could not use it in my Holiday decor;

however, this garland had dried/preserved so beautifully that is was perfect

for the Winter Mantel featuring a magnolia garland.
