A Holiday Mantel

The always sought after fireplace and its mantel can be the heart of any room. In addition to being an added source of our basic needs of heat and light, it can create a wonderful holiday focal point.

So how to accent the mantel for Christmas?

With a touch of nature

 With a garland of flowers

                                                   With a garland of berries

With personal mementos

With elegant stockings

With candles and holiday gifts

They are all certainly heartwarming…
