The older decorations are more traditional so I usually keep them in the living room, dining room and foyer. BUT, in family room and kitchen I like to have fun!
(My walls are not this yellow!)
I’ve been adding more and more of the apple/lime green and red over the last few years.
I love these whimsical stockings! I added some ornaments and a fuzzy white stick to make them a little more interesting.
This is the first year that I’ve ever had lights on my mantle. The thought of the electrical cord hanging down one side really bugged me.
One day it finally occurred to me that I could use some Command Strips with small hooks to hold the cord against the woodwork.
You really can’t see them unless you walk behind the tree. The nice thing is that I know they’ll pull right off without taking paint with them once Christmas is over.
So there you have it – my fun Merry Christmas mantle!
I’ll be joining these parties!
