- Why Stage?
Everyone loves to dress up their home for the holidays and a focal point in many homes is the mantle above the fireplace.
I am one that likes the traditional look of greenery and poinsettias to adorn the fireplace to make it look festive. But over the years I am finding I am gravitating towards more of a winter theme vs. the holiday theme because if I do not get to taking it down right away it still looks nice in January.
However you dress your mantel it is personal, traditional and will leave everyone with a warm feeling of the holidays. Here are some ideas to inspire you, as they have me, over the years.
I love this trending turquoise blue color in decorations, it is so striking and the color just pops with the natural greenery, and branches.
The blue with the white creates a cool room that feels very wintry, while combining the blue with natural greens on the mantel it feels warmer.
If you like a more traditional look with evergreens and paper whites, these are beautiful additions to a room.
In the South and where magnolia branches are abundant, take advantage of them and mix them with fruits and warm candle light to create a striking mantel.
Of course using red and green to decorate a mantle is always handsome and agreeable with the colors of Christmas.
In my search of favorite mantels I came across this adorable idea for the apartment dweller or home that might not have a real fireplace mantel to decorate. Create a canvas with chalk board paint to set the ambiance.
However you decorate or create your mantel, it will bring warmth and the joy of the holidays to you and your family. Merry, Merry!
