Cozy Christmas Mantel in Neutrals

Merry Christmas Decorating! My humble farmhouse is all set for the holidays and I’m ready to open my doors and share it with you. I’m joining some of my favorite bloggers today for Cozy Christmas Mantel inspiration. Their mantels are listed at the end of this post. Thanks to Krista at The Happy Housie for organizing the event!

Normally I don’t decorate for Christmas in neutral tones, but I was going for a soft look and it’s just the way things worked out.

Cozy Christmas Mantel with Bark Wreath

 

This past fall I added large candle holders to my autumn mantel and kept them in place for the holidays.

My hubby calls this the “donut wreath.” I never thought of it that way until he mentioned it. A snowy garland adds a bit of frosty winter to the scene.

I found it at a local boutique called Urban Grace a couple of years ago. I made the bow with wired gold ribbon.

I decided to let the ends of the ribbon circle down to the mantel rather than cut them short.

Miniature gold vases and birds add a little bit of shine with the candles on my cozy Christmas mantel.

The little golden mercury glass vases are from Cocoon – my favorite store. But you can also find them online at Magnolia Market. There are six different shapes that are so cute.

Small Gold Vases and Votive Holders

 

These little golden birds are so sweet. My grandmother used birds in her Christmas decor, too. That’s probably why I like adding birds to any vignette.

A few stockings complete my cozy Christmas mantel. And I always add poinsettias to my holiday decor. My favorite color are the creamy white ones. I think they look so elegant.
