Imagine you’re sitting in front of the fireplace sipping hot chocolate, a glass of red wine or maybe coffee or hot tea. The fire is roaring and you’re feeling warm and cozy. Life is good and you are relaxed and happy and, of course, your mantel decoration is on point.
The fireplace is often central to the home and where families and friends gather in the winter months. Mantel décor can enhance the look and feel of the room and create an even more inviting space. With a few simple steps, your mantel can be an eye-catching focal point for the holidays!
Start with a blank canvas so ideas can flow fresh and new!
Next, add seasonal greens. The base for this classic look is fresh evergreen stems which are simple to find and make a gorgeous addition to any home. Bonus – they smell amazing!
Color! Here’s where you can get colorful! Add red for a classic red and green Christmas feel. Choose blue and silver for a unique twist on a festive look or gold to bring some old-time shine into the room.
Pop in some seasonal cheer to add height and dimension. Anything goes here from metal reindeer to poinsettias to a wreath or garland - get creative and add additional colors or themes that tie your entire holiday display together.
Lastly, hang a few stockings by the fireplace with care. I mean, where else is Santa supposed to put your candy (or coal)?
Mantel decoration is a unique way to spice up a room for the holidays and showcase your creativity while creating a space that’s all your own.
