This year the mantle is decorated in aqua and teal blues, paired with shades of lime green. The center focal point is a new, large ornament from TJMAXX but everything else came from my huge collection of Christmas decorations. My mantra for Christmas decorating this year should be greenery and Christmas balls everywhere!
For the past several years I haven’t put up a tree, but the house can still look festive and pretty without one! The kitchen, dining room and family room are all decorated with plenty of greenery and pretty ornaments.
I’ve always liked the look of a trio of wreaths, so I added them above the mantle.
A faux wreath is surrounding the twigs in my thrift shop urn and freshly clipped greens are tucked in.
Every year after Christmas, I think about replacing the old faux swag and replacing it with a fuller one. For now I just tuck in lots of fresh greens.
Most of these plastic ornaments are from Walmart. They do have a nice selection of ornaments.
On the center wreath, I pictured a loosely draped, satin ribbon but I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I settled for a metallic mesh ribbon.
That’s the Christmas mantle this year! It’s hard coming up with a new look every year.
