Next to the Christmas tree, mantels are the easiest place to incorporate holiday decorations. That’s my assumption; I wouldn’t know because I’ve never lived in a place with a mantel of my own, but it seems to me mantels create great focal points in a room, and Christmas time is no exception. If you’re like me and don’t have a mantel, try decorating the top of a bookshelf, piano, hutch, or entertainment center. In any case, I have collected some inspirational Christmas mantel photos for you to enjoy. I’ll admit a couple of these mantels are way more elaborate than I’ll ever get, but they sure are pretty to look at!
My favorite mantels are the ones that incorporate greenery into white pitchers, pots, or urns. These displays are simple, natural, and can easily translate from Christmas to the remainder of the winter season. What is your favorite thing to display on your mantel for Christmas?
