Holiday: Marvelous Mantles

Happy Monday! I finally added some holiday cheer to my mantle on this very warm LA weekend. Below are some shots of my mantle along with some other mantle inspirations.  After trying both simple looks, I went with the wintery white/silver look.

To stay on budget, add simple greenery, berries & holiday decor that you already own for some holiday mantle cheer. Candles add a glow but add white lights for a wow factor at night. 

I used glittered pine cones and ornaments as filler for the hurricanes and of course my homemade feather trees :)
Or add colored ornaments as accents to your existing decor.  I removed the berries and the hurricanes and the let the aqua be the star.
Love the smell of the fresh greenery this time of the year!
