The stockings were hung…..

I don’t know about you, but we are ready for Santa. We have our stockings hung on the mantle and are just waiting for the big man to make his arrival!

This was my first year to decorate a mantle, so I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted garland, but after I hung the stockings up, it just looked blah. I added pine cones in a tall vase that I already had on hand and then went to Target (the best store in the world) and picked up two small pre-lit trees. I was planning on doing bows or something to dress up the planter for the tree, but, as you can see in the picture, I just couldn’t seem to get it right. Maybe next year.

How do you decorate your fireplace / mantle? Send me a picture, I would love to check it out and maybe borrow some ideas for next year. It’s never too early to start thinking about it, especially with with all the great after Christmas sales coming up!

    Your mantle looks great! I love the mini trees, they frame it all perfectly! I was lazy this year and didn't get my mantle decorated (or stockings hung). If we end up getting stuck at home for Christmas I'll have to bust them out.

    We dont have a mantle, just a little alcove where we jammed some winter village things (mainly a church and a tree). Luckily we had three hooks left over from the previous owners. One for B and two for me 😉

    I love your mantle.

    Danielle, the little cave in your fireplace is very cool. That previous owner was so nice to leave those hooks. That is about all they did though. LOL.
