Whimsical Christmas Mantel 2013

It's that time of the year again! I hope you are all getting in the holiday spirit! I think I am by looking at this mantel! I decided to go with a whimsical theme this year. I used the garland I have been using on my mantle for several years over a mirror. I placed glittered trees and a beautiful Santa on the sides with Ho Ho Ho blocks in the middle. I added large flat metal decorative balls hanging from ribbons in front of the mirror and on the sides hanging down. They are attached to the garland. I used a wreath I made full of decorative ornaments on the fireplace screen and added decorative presents and the reindeer to create this whimsical look. It turned out very fun and festive!


I always get comments on my curtains every Christmas. They definitely seem to coordinate with my mantel décor!





I found the pillow at Pier 1 Imports.

The metal reindeer are from Sam's.





















Most of the pictures were taken by friend and photographer Venus Nickell. She got some beautiful close up shots! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Fall House Tour

  Fall is here! The trees are changing colors and the weather is getting cooler. I am loving it! I always enjoy decorating for the seasons and Christmas is not that far off! I'm starting to get some ideas together now, but for now I am enjoying this beautiful fall season.   
I shared my fall mantle several weeks ago. You will definitely know it's fall when you walk in the door! 



I found the owl pillow at Pier 1 and love him! Did you spot the owl on the mantle? He blends in with the fall colors.

I am loving my new kitchen table and chairs I purchased this summer. It looks great with fall colors.


There is a another owl on the table!





I added gourds, pumpkins, wheat, moss balls, grapevine balls, and sunflowers to the metal basket. I found this idea on Pinterest last year.



I dressed up this cute scarecrow burlap wall hanging with fall ribbons.

 I decorated the frame with ribbon and added the leaves and fall phrase inside.



I love the shape of this birdcage and decided to add some gourds and grapevine balls inside.

This is my dining room table all decked out for fall.




 Hope you enjoyed this little tour! Enjoy the season!
