Today I’m excited to share my Christmas Mantel Decor with you as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Home Tour Series hosted by Krista from The Happy Housie and April from House By Hoff! Be sure to check the week-long schedule at the end of this post for more Christmas decor inspiration. Our weather in St. Louis has been basically anything but holiday like, so it’s been really hard to get in the mood to decorate for Christmas. My Christmas mantel is the result of a few trips to Target 😉 It all just fell into place, with no real planning. The old books, the candlesticks, and glass vases have remained for over a year throughout the seasons. While shopping the past few weeks, I found the simple stocking holders in the dollar section of Target.
Later I spied the deer, Christmas car and lit bottle brush trees on another trip to Target. I have countless totes full of holiday decor that we usually pull out every year and sprinkle every nook and cranny of our living space that I could.
My husband left the totes out for nearly two weeks before he asked……”aren’t you going to finish decorating the house?” I said…..”I have!
I hope my Merry & Bright Christmas Playlist inspires you while you decorate your home! For now, I’m enjoying the seasonal simplicity along with a few fresh new goodies that didn’t have to break the bank. Fresh Greenery – Sprays and Boxwood Wreath – Trader Joes (similar)
