Fresh Mantel Decor



This year, I am one of those people who didn't quite get the Christmas decorations back into the closet until long after the holiday...just yesterday to be exact. Even though there is snow on the ground and it is bitter cold, I am starting to feel spring creeping in and the lovely idea of new beginnings.

I absolutely loved our Christmas mantel decor this past season in the new home. Once put away, the ledge was quite bare. After being snowed and iced indoors the past few days, we all ventured out to lunch and Home Goods. My last trip there was a let down, but this visit proved very successful! I gathered some great items to put together a classic and yet somewhat springy {to me} mantel display.

{Family Rules Sign by Treehouse Treasures }

The white petal vase is something I would not normally choose. However, I have been seeing a lot of white ceramic floating around and love the contrast it brings! I am also getting excited for some refreshing projects that are on my list!

  11. Love it! The white adds the pop of fresh oomph your mantle needed, and what a unique vase! It almost has a pineapple quality to it! All together, the mantle is just so charming! Please come and share this (and any other projects you'd like to show off) at the Head to Head Showdown link party! It's all happening right now at www.icantstopcrafting.blogspot.com I hope to see you there! ~Jen

  14. Beautiful! Would you mind telling where you ordered the family rules (or how you made it). I love it and that would make a wonderful gift for my sister!
