Whereas my everyday decor is more on the restrained side, I tend to go a little crazy at Christmas. I can't help it. There are GREENS! And SPARKLES! And, how am I suppose to restrain myself. While I'm no where near done, I did pull together my mantle.
As I said last week, I wanted to keep my decor more on the neutral side. So, I kept the mantle to doses of green neutrals, with pops of gold and red. The only color not in my original color scheme is blue, but I have an idea on how to incorporate that, and I'll update you all when I do :).
A sneak peek of our tree in the mirror!
Here are a few of the book snowflakes I posted about on Monday.
And a few close-ups.
The garland on the fireplace is a mixture of the felt garland I made last year, and a simple twine rope.
And, just for fun, the whole thing lit up in the evening.
