The Adventure Starts Here: Christmas Mantel 2014

Christmas Mantel 2014

Here is our Christmas Mantel!  I love decorating for Christmas and I especially love it now that we have a fireplace and mantel.   I love the traditional look of hanging our stockings on the mantel.  Other than that I kept it pretty simple.  

I found the potted plant and soldier at Target.  Noah actually picked out the soldier himself, though I think he'd rather play with it than have it as decoration.  

I got the stocking hangers a few years ago from Crate and Barrel.  I even have an extra one in a box in case we have another child ;) 

Here's a glimpse of our tree.  We got an artificial unlit tree and put the lights on ourselves.  I read a tip on Pinterest about putting both large and small lights on it to give it dimension and I have to say I love it.  We are going to decorate it as a family on Friday night.

  1. I love your mantel decorations! That's my dream one day... to have a house with a mantel that I can decorate. Maybe one day :)
    Love your tree too! It looks awesome with big and small lights! I wish I had known that little Pinterest tip before we decorated and lit our tree... I'll have to remember that for next year!
