My favorite spot to decorate and style is probably my mantel. I tend to change it up for the seasons only to think I will leave it up longer. I love how I style it and think it will last, only to end up changing it again. I can’t wait to share with you my latest design, my Christmas mantel for this year.
I only used three of our buffalo plaid stockings this year and mixed in two black and white sweater stockings I found at Target and I love it! You may notice a flocked tree this year on the left. I’ll be sharing our trees in another post.
I stuck candy cane ornaments in the stockings. I found them at Hobby Lobby. I always love to put my Mary and Baby Jesus front and center. I layered empty gold frames behind.
I lined up my favorite Christmas trees down the mantel. I found these over the years at TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby.
My candy cane trees add a pop of red along with the buffalo plaid stockings.

I adored my mantel from last year.
After Christmas, and for the rest of winter it was styled like this.
In spring my mantel looked like this. With botanical prints, greens and whites.
Here’s how it looked this summer- red, white and blue.
And here it was for November, fall colors and pheasants.
How do you decorate your fireplace when you have no mantel? I just finished decorating a beautiful vacation rental property for a Tour of Homes. It has two gorgeous fireplaces, both with no mantel.
This Beautiful stone fireplace in the Great Room is a beautiful feature wall and I wanted to accentuate it. So I decide to put simple undecorated lit flocked trees in my green outdoor pots. So so I brought the pots inside and bought three trees at Walmart. Two were tall and slim and the third a bit wider. I didn’t want to overpower the space with trees. I added a Comfort and Joy sign from Hobby Lobby, my Northwoods Santa I found at TJ Maxx years ago and a vintage sled. Wrapped empty boxes make the perfect accent.
The basement has a similar fireplace, but with a hearth. On the left side I leaned my vintage green ladder and added a different plaid blanket to each rung. On the right side I used another of my green pots and filled it with birch. A pair of vintage, green water skis leans there too. Above the fireplace I hung three snowflakes from fishing line on command strips.
