Holiday Mantel ~ Great Room


I’m still working on both my mantels, but wanted to participate in the mantel linky at Layla’s for the Holiday Home Linky Party.  I need to get some green filler picks for this one, as well as to just slip into other areas around the house.  This is the fireplace in our great room.  A couple of things I did different this year was getting some battery lights and I put two in these glass hurricanes with some ornaments.


I’ve been playing around with the other ornaments to hide the battery pack at the base of the hurricanes.  I also covered up all my candles with Christmas scrapbook paper.


I put my carolers here, but I’m not sure they will be staying.  I love them and will try to use them somewhere else, but I’m looking for more fun and whimsy here. 


My little topiaries just have a bit of burgundy satin ribbon wrapped around the pots.   I’m thinking of trying the ribbon that I used on the feather boa wreath.




This year I took the fabric covered wreath that I showed back in the Spring/Summer and recovered it with some white feather boas that were originally purchased as a garland for my tree several years ago.  I got this fun colored wire ribbon at Michaels a couple of weeks ago. 




 I love all these colors together!



Some greenery and the Christmas stockings need to be put in place here {as soon as I can find the bin with the stocking holders}!

So, so pretty, Kathy! I love your mantel ... the feather wreath is fab! And, the carolers are so festive. The hurricanes filled with ornaments are such a beautiful, colorful touch, too (great idea adding the lights)! (And, THANK YOU for your sweet note about my Christmas mantel ...

Hi Kathy-

When I saw the colorful ornaments in the glass hurricanes - I smiled as they reminded me of you. Then I smiled again at the end of your post where you have a close up of the ornaments and stated you just love the colors together. Those colors are definitly - you.
I bet the mantel looks really pretty at night when it is lit up.
My best- Diane
