Holiday Decorating 101: The Mantle

Decide on Colors 

When decorating your mantle for the holidays, first choose your colors. Some good go-to color schemes for your mantle include red and green, white and silver, silver and gold, and earth tones. This does not mean you must stick to only two colors, it is just a good place to start and you can add in other accents from there.

Play up the Height  

Another helpful tip for decorating your mantle is to play up the height if you have it. This can be accomplished by choosing tall items like trees for your mantle as well as some shorter ones so you can see the variation.
