Decorating for Christmas

I am one tired lady!!  I've worked all day, decorating for Christmas.  I don't have the tree up yet, but the mantel is done, and a few other spots have some vignettes done.  The dining room table is set with Christmas dishes, a wreath is on the front door, and this year, I hung a lighted garland across the front porch rail.   I made bows this morning, and got that up this afternoon.

The only part I'm sharing in this post is the mantel.  I am using white, gold, and red this year, with some green of course.  I used the lighted garland on the mantel, and pushed in some golden sparkly mesh ribbon.


I decided to add a punch of red and did so by adding 3 red and gold ornaments.  Then at each end, I added the birch log candles that I bought last year.  They blend in really well.




I moved the faux paper whites to the hearth and added a red and gold ribbon.



The wreath I hung on the mirror is one I made last year.  It was silver and white with silver snowflakes.  I added some of the gold mesh ribbon that I used on the mantel to the wreath so they would match.




So there is part I: the mantel for 2014.  I'll be back in a day or two with more Christmas decor.
