I love to decorate especially when the holidays are upon us. I try to add something new to my collection each year to ensure a fresh and exciting look.
This year I purchased a few red cardinal ornaments and lots of fake snow to create a red, white and green winter mantel. I also recycled the bottom branches off my Christmas tree which added a natural woodland feel. I really love how my mantle turned out this year. The red birds tie into my existing decor and the fake snow sparkles when the fireplace is burning. I enjoy bringing outdoor elements inside and my snowy woodland mantel ensure that we will enjoy a white Christmas no matter what occurs outside.
My grandmother made the poinsettia stockings along with a tree skirt for my husband and I as a wedding gift. I always thought that it was such a great homemade gift idea as most newly weds don’t have matching holiday decor. We have used those stockings for the past 13 years and they are a treasure because my grandmother hand-made them for us. My mom made the green plaid stockings for my two boys and I love the contrast of the green plaid and the floral poinsettia print.
