Mantel Parties…

I wanted to participate in the Mantel Parties this week which are being held at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia and Southern Hospitality .  Thank you so much ladies for hosting these parties!

I did change things up a bit this year on my mantel as I was ready for a change….I used whites and reds in the mantel and my tree…but today, the mantel…

I wrapped white boas around a  wreath form to make the wreath and hung it on my window….

That’s it!  Since I changed it up this year I spent a lot of time just standing in front of the mantel with my head cocked to one side just pondering….what to do what to do….I am happy with the snowy theme this year….

Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure and check on the other participants!

Have a Great Day!

  6. It's beautiful, Lou Cinda! Maybe I should try my garland ON the mantel next year instead of just under it. Love the wreath ~ I did that last year! I'm passing it off to my daughter this year though. Love all the nature inspired elements you added, too. {Nice blog background! Love it!}

  19. Lou Cinda,

    So stunning!!!!! I just love your mantle decor! You clever girl you can just remove the Santa's and you already have your winter mantle done. The little birds, nests and bird houses are so cute. I can't wait to see what you have done with your kitchen and your tree!

    Your partner in crime,

  24. It's beautiful! Love all of the sparkles and especially that sparkly Santa figure. You perfectly described me pondering what to put where. I spend more time cocking my head at things than I do actually decorating them. What a cute Christmas background your blog is sporting. laurie
