I hope you are all staying warm this week! We have been blasted with several inches of snow & ice & I have been freezing my little toes off! When the weather gets frigid, I enjoy sipping hot tea to the warmth of a fire & the glow from the Christmas lights adorning the mantel.
I decided to change up the mantel quite a bit from the last several years. After growing tired of my very fake greenery & being too scared I would catch the house on fire with the real stuff, I decided to forego greenery all together.
Two real pink poinsettias flank the mantel.
The space between them is filled with blue, gold, & silver ornaments & a string of clear Christmas lights with a white cord.
I also hung ornaments on ribbon at various heights along the front of the mantel.
A cluster of blue, gold, & silver ball ornaments hangs from the mirror.
Here’s how that section of the family room is looking this year.
Since the fire is nice & warm now, I think I’ll go grab a glass of tea & enjoy myself before the kids get home!
