We are so grateful for our followers and everyone who comments! We love blogland! Thanks to Mary and Dave from Front-Porch-Ideas-and-More for featuring our Christmas Porch, you can check out the post here.
So today we want to share my living room Christmas Mantel. When my husband and I moved into our house a little over 2 years ago I was so excited to have a mantel to decorate! But you may not know, he won the battle of hanging the TV above that mantel! Although, I do like the way it turned out and think it fits best for the room. I was really excited when my mom had the idea to buy an electric fireplace for my living room! This is the first year having it and I was so excited to decorate it, even though I stared at it for about two days before I figured out what to do with it! haha Does this ever happen to you?
In my living room I tried to stick with the copper, gold, and green colors.
I used rice lights on all of the pines. I love these lights they give off a good amount of light, they are much lighter then regular lights, and you can hide the cord easier!
I tied a burlap bow around both deer.
I love these green magnolia wreaths! They have a hint of gold in them.
These trees are so different they shimmer with glitter.
I made each mantel piece out of various pines. I started with a swag as a base, which let me secure the rest of the pine.
In the lanterns I used two different battery operated candles. In the cream lantern is a Luminara candle. Which we hope to get up on our website soon. These are so neat! You cannot tell it is a fake flame it is amazing, and it has a timer. The gold lantern is a battery operated taper candle w/ a timer.
I filled a rustic box with various pines and some more rice lights.
Thank you all for stopping by! We still have a lot more to show, and we are working on some great Christmas Tutorials. So stay tuned!
