Modern holiday mantel ideas
The mantel makes such a statement this time of year, don’t you think? Those of us without fireplaces are very jealous of those who have them, that’s for sure. We had a fun time dressing up Jillian’s mantel with pretty golds and pinks. Again with the help of Danielle from Brown Paper Design and Erin Hearts Court, of course.
Isn’t that wreath spectacular? Danielle made it using a wreath frame and found branches from her neighborhood magnolia trees. She spray painted the green side of each leaf with gold and then assembled it using wire. And she claims it’s really not as complicated as it looks. Amazing!
Jillian created the garland for the mantel using styrofoam balls she spray painted with copper, gold, and silver. She strung them using a needle and heavy string and then hung them from teeny nails hidden behind the drop of her mantel.
Cute party shoes, no? Clearly the fashion at a party like this would be bold and sparkly.
Love the illustrated ornaments for an easy little project to dress up any part of your house this time of year. Jillian drew them and guess what? You totally can too!
We’ll be sharing a tutorial for the little glitter votives later in the week. Yay.
See, you grab a champagne cocktail from the Bubbly Bar and then make your way over to the fireplace and warm yourself in from of faux bois logs! It’s so perfectly modern.
And a vintage aluminum Christmas tree, natch! Someone snapped it up out of the Pop-Up Shop already. Lucky gal, cause it’s a cute one! We dressed it in vintage ornaments from Kristina’s grandma’s collection. There’s something so wonderful about vintage Christmas, isn’t there?
More coming on the holiday front later today and this week. Sooo much good inspiration this time of year!
