If you are coming over from First Day Of Home, welcome! Weren’t you so inspired by Crissy’s post! I always love the inspiration I find on her blog and YouTube videos.
If you are new to White Arrows Home it’s my pleasure to welcome you to The Northwoods of Wisconsin where I live with my husband and four kids in the woods in a lakeside log cabin.
With our backdrop of snow, the cabin gets extra cozy inside. And one of the biggest features of coziness is our fireplace in the great room.
And our great room mantel is one of my favorite things to decorate. Each year I style it a little differently for the Christmas Holidays. I don’t really have a plan when I start. There is usually one piece that inspires it all.
Last year it was these amazing shutters off an old cottage. Greens and whites were the main colors with touches of red from the stockings.
One year I used a mix of my trees with empty gold frames. I did a mix of buffalo plaid and sweater stockings.
One year I did all buffalo plaid stockings and put them on the outside edges of the mantel and hung snowflake ornaments in the middle. A swag of feathers hung above the snowflakes. The snowflakes sparked this styling.
For this year I decided I wanted to use my red skis. I always like to add something tall to the mantel and then add other elements of varying heights.
For the stockings this year I did black and white buffalo plaid. These are from the collection I sell in The Shop. The red and black buffalo plaid swag above the stockings is actually the top sheet from a set. I used only the fitted sheets in a bedroom project. So I cut the top sheets into thirds and used it as Christmas swag around the house this year.
Then I decided to add in my black vintage skis.
I used just my red and white striped trees.
I keep things cozy too by throwing throw blankets all over on ottomans, arms of the chairs, across the back of the sofas.
