Our Christmas Mantel

Our Christmas Mantel

I love this time of year and decorating for the holidays just makes me squeal with happy.Our home is filled with Christmas! Decorating does take me a bit longer than it used to. But, I enjoy it sooo much. When it’s time to decorate I always start with the mantel. Since I can’t have you all over for a cup of something yummy and invite you in for a visit. I thought I would take a few photos and share our mantel with you today.Christmas mantel

No fancy photos just a few snaps to share :-)

christmas mantel Do you remember when I was trying to figure out what to put above the mantel? If you missed the post you can read it here. My sweet hubby bought this beautiful mirror and it fits the mantel perfectly. Just like it has been there all along.

I wrapped some candles with a bit of  leftover holiday ribbon. It adds a little something extra.

Our Stockings are hung and our sweet Izzy has one too. I just love the paw print on it :-)

So there it is, our Christmas mantel.  I wish I could have you over for a cup of tea and we could light the fire and chat.

I look forward to sharing the rest of the house with you next week.

What do you decorate first?

  1. Hi Katherine,
    this is just breath takingly beautiful and must have taken you hours. It makes me feel guilty that I have not started decorating yet, but am so busy doing orders, that I just do not get a chance.
    Maybe I should go on Christmas break, but I must get the orders out first.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and for the follow.
    I hope that you have a fantastic day.
    Love and best wishes.

  2. That’s so pretty!! I love mantles & seeing them decorated :)) Very lovely. I usually start with my front door & hang the wreath and other bits around the door and then I begin inside, but it always starts with my door :) This looks wonderful. Happy Christmas doll, I hope you have a great weekend Xxx

  3. Hi Katy., I’m like you and just love decorating the house for Christmas! I love your mantel and particularly those golden reindeer. I have always wanted a mantelpiece at this time of the year, and this year I’ve got one for the first time! It looks lovely and I am so pleased with it. Ho! Ho! Ho!

  4. Your mantle is gorgeous.

  5. Beautiful, Katie! Love the feather wreath!

  6. Hi Katherine! Cainan (9) and I are here visiting and checking out your gorgeous Christmas mantel! We saw your photo on FB and Cainan said he thought you probably had your stockings hanging so we came over to see! Looks gorgeous—have a lovely weekend!

    Wow!!! That is so pretty! Can you come to my house and make it look like that please!!! Lol

  9. Mantels are so much fun to decorate – love yours!

    • Thank you, I think so too. I didn’t have one for a long time. Then when we built the house and decided on a fireplace I was very excited about how to decorate it for the holidays. That was 8 years ago and I get just as excited every year. Hugs

  10. Stunning! Absolutely beautiful mantle. Your decorations are elegant and wonderfully presented. Hugs, Gayle.

  11. So beautiful, Katherine. Lovely like you. Have a Merry Christmas and all the best to your family in the new year. I have yet to do much in decorations. The lights are on the trees outside and a cedar wreath is on the front door. The other decorations will go up next week. It seems we put them up earlier and earlier every year. I remember as a kid, one Christmas, when Dad forgot to bring home a tree and had to go out and get one after the yard where they sold them was closed, Mom and I stayed up half the night decorating. It was Christmas Eve. That was so much fun. One of my most memorable Christmases.

  12. Wow its so pretty! I love it. I miss my mantel. We just moved and I have no mantel here.

  13. I love the color combinations and the mantel is so beautiful. You are a gifted lady Katherine. Thank you for sharing your talents with us. Echo
