Our Merry Mantel!

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.

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!
