Deck the Halls with Garland

One of my favorite features of my new house is the mantle. I never really prioritized a fireplace during our house hunt, but now that we have one, I can't imagine not. There is so much to do with it all year long! Take for instance this beauty...

For Christmas, I'm decking our mantle out with stockings, garland, and an assortment of decorations on top. Unfortunately, Eric won't budge on his electronics, so it won't be as glamorous as my inspiration above, but it's still going to be awesome. I'll be sure to share pictures soon! 

I really believe that a key component to a gorgeous mantle is garland. My mom has gorgeous greenery that she attaches bulbs & light to. My mother in law has a snowman scene that sets atop of hers. I'm not totally sure what my style will be like, but here are a few of my favorite garland finds from Etsy!

Or you could always go with fresh... can't beat that smell!

  1. I couldn't agree more! Our new home also has a mantel, and I have a million ideas running through my head. But I love the idea (and smell) of fresh pine!
