Christmas is up and running in our "house" so today I'm talking about our Mantel! When we moved in 2 years ago and I saw this mantel, I can't explain how excited I was that I'd have a mantel for Christmas! And all 5 [yes the pets get stockings too!] of our stockings are hanging by it.
[just ignore Jose's sock puppet in that top picture on top of our garland lol]
Back when it was just Jose, me and Hitchcock [the cat] we had beautiful silver deer stocking holders we bought from target. There was a baby deer too with the collection that was Hitch's but once we got the dogs, we decided not to let Hitch be the only one with a special stocking holder so I put it away and it waits til one day [far far away day] when we have our own kid. But ANYWAY... here is mine and in the next picture is Jose's deer.
The deer stocking holders are from Target a couple years ago and so are the candle holders. I got it all for clearance! And the small silver ornaments are from Target too! The red ornaments and our stockings are simply from CVS [and it's true! These ornaments are shatterproof! I cant tell you how many times I dropped them arranging them on the mantel and everytime they fell, the bounced!]
And there's our lovely little silver and red mantel! :) And I'm linked up at Layla's Holiday Home Party so if you're feeling inspired, go check out hers and the other links!
