I have never been much for decorating our mantel. I have a huge clock and two topiaries and that is pretty much it.....throw in some stockings at Christmas and it's decked out for the holidays. I always admire other people's decorated mantels- I just never knew what to do with mine. Then I met Lisa.
Always being the one being asked to do decorating for others, I was super excited when Lisa offered to do our mantel for the holidays. I was a bit nervous about it since I am not the traditional red/green Christmasy kind of girl. I like decorations that look a bit more natural. Turns out I was nervous for no reason- she picked up on my style immediately and nailed it.
|Putting up the center piece...|
|I adore this lantern...and the gifts....and the bows....|
|Lisa wanted to add some height, so she incorporated the branches|
|She brought everything she needed to install. all I had to do was snap pictures!|
|Jack tried to help. And by "help" I mean "ate garland"|
|Here is the mantel all decorated up and decked out for the holidays!|
|I even got inspired to add a little of Lisa's inspiration to my front porch : o )|
