A Whimsical Winter Mantel

I am not a very patient person. I had a really hard time waiting until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas. I have been waiting of this all year!

On Thanksgiving Day, I had to sneak out a few little winter items. I tried to blend them nicely with my fall items. I was very proud of my centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table.

On Friday, we traveled to Wisconsin with our great friends, to cut down a fresh Christmas tree. I remember doing this when I was young. It is a fun memory.

When we returned home, we cranked up the Christmas music and began decorating.
Here is our Christmas mantel:

I will be sharing my Christmas decorations in multiple posts. I can't wait to show you more. :)

  1. Love the simplicity of your mantel. The door with the bow is a clever treatment and the red adds the perfect splash of holiday. I'm sharing your mantel on my Once Upon a Firefly FB page.

  2. I love the bow! Can't wait to see what else you come up with

  3. Very pretty. That door is awesome and I love the stocking stretchers too.
