Big news folks! I just found out last night that I passed the PE Exam! Oh man am I relieved that I won’t have to start all over with studying! To celebrate, let’s talk about my Christmas mantle. This year and last, I have been liking the idea of more simple and neutral decorations. A little bit of greenery here and there with a good dose of candles and/or Christmas lights. I didn’t go all out with the mantle like I thought I would, mostly because every time I started to add items, I liked it less. Sometimes simpler is better. See the sources below.
Garland – I grouped two garlands on top of each other to make it seem more lush.
Stockings – Our first year of grown up monogrammed stockings! West elm doesn’t them anymore but these are similar.
Picture frame – One of my favorite simple black frames with one of my favorite wedding photos. I topped the frame with a quick DIY wreath I made out of left over greenery from our Christmas tree like so.
Mirror – I bought this from Wisteria and obviously it is gone. But it is a beauty.
Cloche – It is amazing how many different ways you can style this thing. If you don’t have one, buy it here.
Twinkle Lights – I’m almost positive I got the twinkle lights under the cloche from Restoration Hardware last year. But it is also possible they came from Anthro. Either would work.
