In anticipation of Layla’s Holiday Mantel Linky Party (The Lettered Cottage),
I decided to do a separate post on my Holiday Mantel!
This photo was taken in the evening so it’s a bit blurry – sorry!
As you can see, our fireplace & mantle are encased in cherry wood & it goes all the way up to the ceiling…
I love it!
This black marble tile is nice but needs dusting often!
A must-have for my mantel is greenery & white lights!
A tip I read @ The Inspired Room (thanks Melissa!)
*Use Command Hooks (the kind that are removable without damaging surfaces) to secure garland!
I also added a piece of material to the top of the mantel before adding the greenery to protect the wood…
Yes, it’s the same piece of material I used on my Thanksgiving table :’)
I love these little evergreen pics with berries & pinecones! I used them on my table too…
My mantel wouldn’t be complete without the stockings…these have photos of my kiddos from years ago…
I can’t leave my other babies out!
