Not a fan of tons of nicknacks hanging around at the Holidays, It’s understandable, As someone that has knocked her share of fragile decor off their perches with a stray elbow or an exuberant hand gesture, the fewer decor elements the better. This cute little set up is great for the Holidays, but take away the deer and the mini tree and you have a super cute winter set up for the new year!

The flicker of candlelight is some of the most calming and romantic, This cozy little fireplace decor is about the equivalent of cuddling down into a soft blanket to watch it snow.

Can you say Chic?! Normally an all-white decor would feel cold, but with the added glow of twinkle lights on the mantel and candles flickering away in the fireplace has us wanting to sit down and enjoy this lovely space.

Are you headed up to the Mountains this Christmas? Or would you like to give your home the look and feel of being in the mountains? This oversized garland with giant pinecones is bound to do just that. Just add a bucket of “firewood” on the hearth and a row of candle sticks on the mantel and you are practically in lumber jack country.

For all our *cough cough IKEA-philes cough* out there this cute little mantel garland of eucalyptus and bistro lights is given a bit of a Scandinavian touch with a raw wooden bead garland to go with! Add in a fireplace filled with beautifully stacked logs and quaint little wooden trees mixed with candle votives on the mantel and you have a subtle holiday decor that works for the whole season!

Beads aren’t just for Mardi Gras! Asymmetrically add them to your frosted winter pine garland and the whole fireplace seems dressed to impress!

Playing with the room that your fireplace is in is a fun way to plan your decor. This bright and airy space gives the room an feeling of summer, but once you add a frosted cascading garland, a miniature tree that picks up the wall color and a jumbled stack of birch logs interspersed with pillar candles, this room simply screams winter wonderland.
Remember those cute little porcelain houses you could collect and put lights in to create your own perfect holiday town? This next holiday mantel is basically the paired downing less kitschy version of that. Twinkle lights glow in a tiny town silhouette while towering pines reach for silver stars. And all of this sits above a real crackling fire!

Good gravy, that’s a lot of gold! But we can’t say it doesn’t put us in that holiday mindset. Just looking at the glittering gold details of this holiday mantel brings to mind fancy Christmas dinner parties and formal family get-togethers.

Fun! We couldn’t have a Holiday mantel roundup without a fun and funky design that is reminiscent of something out of a Wes Anderson film. Cute little trophies filled with pine tree trimmings, Christmas ornaments in a terrarium, AND a plaid backed set of miniature antlers. It’s all so odd and mismatched we couldn’t help but love this idea.
