Every year I decorate my Christmas mantel the same--in red and white and silver. But this year I decided to try something different, A) because I figured it would be fun for House of White to do a white mantel, & B) because my kitchen/family room area is all white with accents in pale turquoise blue. And while the blue is minimal I thought it would all play more nicely together if I kept the red in the living room.
So without further ado, here are more pictures than you probably need to see to get the picture, but taking too few pictures was NEVER my problem!
I have say I really love the white! In case you were wondering, here is where I got my stuff:
Wreath: antique shop
Glass Garland: I think Target but I've had them for years
Peace hooks: Target (years ago)
Greenery: my back yard
Stockings: I whipped them up yesterday
Ironstone pictures/teapots: all but one I got at the Goodwill (the one that I didn't get there isn't ironstone and a friend gave it to me on May Day filled with yellow tulips!)
The books are wrapped in vintage sheet music
Poinsettias: Home Depot, then I put them in the burlap sacks I made for the Harvest Party
Mirrors: my husband made for me about ten years ago
I have a feeling that before Christmas Eve gets here my mantel is going to look more like this:
The girls are partial to their personalized stockings!
