This year I went with the traditional, symmetrical
I had the poinsettia wreath hanging around waiting to be used.
And we have our stockings from Lands End
that were given to us by my sister in-law a few years ago.
I had my topiaries and my go-to black candlesticks
waiting to be used.
All I need is some wood in the fireplace.
(And some new fireplace tools!)
Santa told me he is bringing new ones
for my husband this year!
Originally, I had other plans to decorate my mantel this year
to continue the look I had going in the fall…
To start, I had planned on hanging a wreath
over the mirror I had leaning up there.
But I got nervous
that the weight of the wreath would pull the mirror forward
and I haven’t had the chance
to use the proper reinforcements to attach the mirror to the wall.
Plus, who knows what kind of crazy
pulling and grabbing of the stockings
will be going on here on
Plus, I am getting quite behind on my
picking outfits for parties
to get caught up in another project!
So, traditional it is for this year!
Did you take the traditional route for your mantel this year?
