Today I'm sharing one of our favorite places in the house... our Christmas mantel!
In case you haven't figured it out yet, I love love garland. Especially lighted garland. I tried to keep the rest of the mantel simple since the garland and wreath stand out so much. I picked both up from Michael's and added some cheap lights to them to give them a little sparkle. It's so cozy and festive, I'm loving it!
I'm a total traditionalist when it comes to holidays, so I stuck to deep greens, red, and plaid for our decor. The plaid is carried throughout our living areas, so you'll see more of it next week! In the meantime, you can see some of my inspiration here!
I love having the tree clippings in different places throughout the house. I can't get enough of the smell! Never mind the fact that we pretty much took a whole shopping cart worth of clippings... I mean, they were free!

I wanted to put a big poinsettia on the floor to the left, but I don't want to risk it with the pup around.
Our living room is absolutely our favorite room in the house! We have found it is best enjoyed with some wine or hot chocolate, my favorite Christmas music, and a fire if it's cold enough!
