How to Decorate a Mantle

Whether your fireplace is real or just decorative, it is important to take advantage of this focal point. No matter your style there are certain elements that should be included. Start with the focal point- may that be a large mirror, a piece of artwork or even the television. Add seasonal greenery, by making a floral arrangement or garland, and for added dimension, incorporate a fun banner or another type of garland. Don’t forget about the little touches, such as reindeer figurines, glass pieces, lanterns, or wooden letters. 

Don’t ignore the space surrounding your fireplace. Group larger figurines or tall candle sticks for a more cohesive, put-together look. And lastly, if you do not plan on actually using your fireplace for function, think about adding a grouping of candles inside and light them at night or during your holiday party for that extra touch!
