Holiday Mantel

This year I'm continuing to decorate with for the holidays with a color I have never used before, purple! I had so much fun using this color for my winter tablescape, that I decided to use it on my mantel as well. Let me first start off my saying that I greatly dislike my fireplace and mantel. The fireplace insert isn't centered and the mantel is VERY narrow. This never does stop me from decorating it for every holiday and occasion.

I started decorating by using a green garland and adding silver leaves, ornaments, and "iced" pine branches.

I found these mini purple trees at Christmas Tree Shops. They added just the amount of color I was looking for.

I love these little birds that I found at Michaels

 Keeping with my Winter Wonderland theme, I hung snowflakes over the mantel. I layered purple, silver, and charcoal colored ornaments in tall glass vases. I bought the silver goblet candle holders at HomeGoods a few years ago and have used them for many different seasons.

I do love the decorations that I have used in the past on my mantel and decided to decorate one of my sofa tables with all of those warm accents.

I'll be sharing my Christmas trees in the next few days.
