Dream Christmas Mantle

I don't have a mantle or a fireplace to decorate for the Christmas season, but I love the idea of having a mantle to dress up for this special and cozy holiday. So I dreamed up an imaginary mantle and collected some pretty images to go along with it! If I had a mantle (maybe next year?) this is how I would garnish it.

Mary and Jesus / I think this is a stunning image of Mary and baby Jesus, and of course, a beautiful reminder of the most important part of Christmas. I would love to hang this directly above my Christmas mantle.

Vase of Red Berries / I would put these red berries in two vases, one on either end of the mantle for a gorgeous pop of color.

Simple and Pretty Pinecone Garland / I think I could make something like this myself. I love how rustic and natural it looks.

Cedar Greenery / These cedar greens would look perfect tucked in between the pinecones.

Silver Bird Ornaments / I would clip these pretty, delicate birds to the greens. Aren't they precious?

Ivory Pillar Candles / It's not Christmas without candles! I love the varying heights of these pillar candles. And of course, they must be ivory!

Angel Pillar Candle Holder / I think this candle holder is so dramatic. It's another lovely reminder of the real meaning of Christmas.

Do you have a mantle? How is it decorated for this joyful and beautiful holiday?


  1. I think you should add in a photo from our Winter Wedding!

  2. I don't have a mantle either! Maybe someday!

  3. I'm with ya on the dream mantle! it's so gorgeous in my mind. :)

    1. It's fun to design in your head, isn't it?!

  4. So I was browsing through your "Holidays" label for more Christmas decor ideas and recipes, and I realized that this "dream mantle" seems to have finally become a reality for you this year! How wonderful! I just wanted to point that out in case you hadn't realized it already. I thought it might add to your enjoyment of your Christmas mantle this year! ;)
