I really stressed over my mantel this year, it was the last thing to be decorated. I just had no idea what it needed this year. I knew that I wanted to use the long needle pine garland and the NOEL letters so I just set them both up there to get inspired and they haven't moved since. I have just added on around it. It's definitely growing on me.
Update: I knew I didn't like the previous arrangement on the left so I had to go and change it today and now I have that warm cozy feeling that says "I'm done".
Thanks for visiting! Can't wait to see all of the other Mantels out there. I have linked up to Layla's Christmas Mantel Linky party, check it out!
