My Fresh Christmas Fireplace

I'm back!
Just like I promised with the fresh cedar mantel.
It's simple and stunning.

I gave you a little peek in last week's post about my paper rose trees.
In case you missed them...go check 'em out!

I'm not doing a whole house tour...
like I said during last year's tour...most of my decor stays the same.

The main thing that changes is the mantel...
and apparently now the little dresser. :)

Home Depot had some fresh cedar garland in their ad for Black Friday.
Since I'm not nearly crazy enough to do the whole
Black Friday thing, and besides, I have to work...
we were out shopping Friday evening.

Well, of course, by the time we got there, the garland in the ad was gone.
The sales clerk was awesome enough to give us this other garland for the same sale price.
She totally rocks!

I love the drapey look of it...and so carefree.
Getting it to hang on my not real mantel was anything but!

I paired it with different size red and white poinsettias,
some fabulous angel wings, a couple of my handmade stockings,
along with a few I got from Decor Steals.

I love these glitter metal stars I picked up on clearance this summer.

I've spritzed it and spritzed it and it's still completely dry.
Welcome to Colorado.
It still looks beautiful and it might just be my absolute favorite thing this year.

I hope your Christmas season finds you enjoying family and
friends and remembering the reason for the season.

We are heading to OKC to see Sara perform in the
university's Christmas shows and can NOT wait!!!

  9. This year was the first year that I bought a real pine wreath and I'm hooked! The scent fills the house. I can imagine your house is the same. Love how you incorporated fresh greenery on your beautiful mantle. Thanks for linking up on Outside The Box

  10. Your mantle is so pretty. It may be "fake" but it is more of a mantle than what I have. We don't have a fireplace :(
