It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas.... Starting to Decorate the Fireplace Mantle

Started decorating the fireplace mantle today.  It's not done and I still have some decor for the hearth area too.  Just thought I would share a quick picture.  There are 3 Valerie Swirlin20231130_181613 (2).jpgg Twinkling Snow Hurricanes and the 5 mercury glass trees are from Costco.  The metal deer I bought on Amazon.  I took this picture as a video, not sure if it shows up here like that or just as a picture.

So pretty! I love it.

I almost bought those trees from Costco but didn't and the next time I went they were gone....

Very festive, @ciao_bella !   Also, very pretty, multi-paned traditional black lantern, my favorite type, anchoring the arrangement.

@homedecor1 Changing it up like you and less is more is exactly what I did this year too.  The mantle is 10 feet long, so a lot to cover but I tried to only add in some pinecones and a little greenery this year for a winter woodland look.   In previous years, it was more lights, glitz and greenery. This is a picture from a few years ago. After a few years, I get bored with a look and need a change.20221211_105825.jpg20211213_113002.jpg

Your older versions are beautiful too. It is nice to change it up tho. Last year I bought several of VPH's poinsetta picks in red and white.  I had been using an old, I mean really old, poinsettia garland with faux holly berries on it and the poor thing was just tired out. 

 

I'll try and find a photo to post. Adding the new picks in brightened it up a lot. I enjoy seeing all of the fun things people put together.
