Our Bright & Cheery Living Room Mantel

Our house has a huge formal living room space and one that we currently use as a home office/piano space.  We are also fortunate enough to have 2 fireplaces in our home although we do not use the one in this space for actual fires at this time.  So, when the holidays roll around I love decorating this mantel with a bright and cheery theme to match our tree in the room.  This year I added a few new touches....

When I walk by this room each day I just smile because I love how bright & cheery this fireplace looks right now! We bought the garland last year at Target and used 3M hooks to attach it to the top and sides of the mantel.  The stockings also came from Target last year.  The 2 big silver trees were Homegoods finds and the 3 glitter presents are from Pier One.

The holiday chevron art was my creation this year and I love how well they turned out.  You can read the quick and easy tutorial HERE.  

The Santa was another Pier One find and the glitter trees are all from Hobby Lobby.

I added a small vase of Christmas ornaments with fake snow for an extra pop of color!

Don't you  just love how festive it looks!
