Our Christmas Mantle

Like a ginormous rolling snowball, 
the Christmas spirit has hit the blogosphere!!!

This week and next you’ll be seeing snippets of our Christmasy home.
Won’t you please come on in for a cup of cheer at our humble abode?

In our newish home I’ve really embraced the notion of creating a neutral backdrop and changing it up throughout the year with pops of color in accessories.  I’m trying out the same concept with decorating for Christmas.

This year I decided to use a lot of natural elements and with some of our colorful decorations sprinkled throughout, starting with the mantle in our family room.  I love fresh greens everywhere, especially layered on top of a strand of twinkling white lights!

My 9 year-old, Seanie, & I strung cotton ball snowflakes that reflect in the mirror.  With the lights off and the candles and little lights sparkling, our snowflakes are just magical!

My kids’ pewter baby cups are one of my favorite decorations all throughout the year!

Simple and festive.  It’s our own little winter wonderland!
