Christmas Cheer Link Party: Holiday Mantels

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Especially around Casa Ten June. The tree is up and decorated (but more on that Thursday when we link up with Megan!), the wreaths are on the front windows of the house (shhh, but I haven't had the heart to tell hubs he hung them with the bows all lopsided... a crooked Christmas anyone?!) and our mantel is officially ready for Santa to come on down the chimney.


Let's take a closer look, shall we?!



I'm kind of in love with the white + red poinsettia wreath I hung over the mirror. I simply used an extra faux evergreen wreath that I had laying around and stuck in (literally- no fancy gluing here) some clipped pieces of sparkly poinsettias.



Our Pottery Barn stockings and Target reindeer stocking holders made their way back from last year's mantel (which, by the way, isn't it funny how vastly I have improved my photography skills since last year's mantel picture taking?! Cra-zay). I also lined the top of the mantel with fresh evergreen tree trimmings and some holly berry clippings from the front yard. Fresh pine smells goooood!


I picked up the sparkly "Ho Ho Ho" sign at Target last year for $1! Love it.

And did you notice a few little white snow globes on either end of the mantel?



They were kind of hard to snap a picture of against my new glossy white mantel (woot woot! looks so much prettier than last year's off-white color!), but they're simply hurricane vases with fake snow and white Christmas trees. So pretty!



Oh and did you notice my adorable Pottery Barn reindeer up there? For some reason or another, my sister has kind of fallen in love with him and affectionately calls him Chris. He's quite the member of the family now. Maybe Chris needs a stocking next year?



So there you have it! Our Christmas mantel for the season.


Now it's high time you shared your mantel with me!

Come on, don't be shy! Link up your holiday mantel or, if you don't have a fireplace mantel , your fantle... that's faux mantel for those of you who aren't familiar with the fake words I make up. Be it a tabletop or shelf, bookcase ledge or sideboard, a faux mantel can be just as gorgeous as a real one.

Grab a button to put in your post or on your sidebar when you link up. All the cool kids are doing it! : )

  3. Looks great Michelle! I love the reindeer.. I have one similar and he's stolen my heart too! I also love the bottle brush trees. They are my favorite for adding a vintage touch! I'll be back to share mine on the weekend. I use fresh greenery and I don't want it to be dried out by Christmas if I start too soon!
