My Christmas Mantle Decor

One of my favorite days of the year is when I decorate my christmas mantle. I try to do a little different look each year, and it’s always fun to pull it all together. This year, I felt like we didn’t have a fall season, so I tried to hold out as long as possible, but still ended up decorating in mid-november.

This year, I went for a more colorful and whimsical theme, instead of the more traditional look that I normally have.

Tour My Christmas Decor

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Each year, I love to do a slightly different color theme or style, and I love buying new stuff on sale after the holiday and refinding it the next season! This year, I kept the look more simple and classic Christmas with mostly neutrals a few pops of red and a lot of greenery. I like to spread the decor throughout my house so there is a little something in each room.

My 2019 Christmas Tree

Ever since I used my first real Christmas tree a few years ago, I never want to go back to faux. They are kind of a mess, but there’s just something about a real tree that feels more special (and you can’t recreate the smell!).

The past few years, I’ve cut down pine trees from my own yard that were the perfect size for a christmas tree and that I didn’t want to grow any bigger. I ran out of trees this year so I had to buy one. I love the look of non-traditional trees, so I opted for a douglas fir which is a little more fluffy looking.

The center of Thanksgiving is the dining table, and it’s a wonderful time to make the setting feel really special. It can also be a really stressful and overwhelming time if you’re the one doing the cooking and decorating! And lets be real– everyone is more worried about the food than the place settings (and possibly the football game on TV, depending on who’s playing!).

Here is a round up of simple, easy place settings that look great without all the fuss!
