'Tis the season to dress up your mantle!

When it comes to holiday decorating, this girl goes all the way. Every single room in my home is touched by a little holiday magic and this year I'm thrilled to be able to decorate a real mantle!

And what better time to decorate a mantle than the holiday season? Yeah, holiday mantle decor is just what I've been waiting for!

Much like with my fall mantle, I went with pieces that added a little height to the equation. A sweet rocking horse, a vintage looking Santa sign an an apothecary jar filled with pinecones and ornaments go perfectly with the classic Christmas vibe my decorations have this year. Since my decor has a decidedly rustic vibe these days, traditional, homey decorations just work best. And what's more homey than Christmas garland and pine cones?! And speaking of the pine cones, you could certainly forgo them and fill the jar with ornaments in your color theme of choice. Easy peasy!
