I love to decorate a mantel for the beautiful Christmas season! As I was going through my Christmas decorations it became obvious to me that I have my favorites! I love snowmen, deer, elves, Christmas trees, glitzy Christmas ornaments, pine garland, and iced red berries! I made a nice lantern floral centerpiece for the center of the mantel that consists of Christmas presents, ornaments, and candy canes, surrounded with pine greenery. I didn't use elves this year, because I haven't started a collection... YET!!!. I don't have a one! I'm going to take care of that little situation and get me some to love, so hopefully I will decorate with a few elves next year! As you can tell, I put a lot of love in my decorating! I'm not a professional by no means, but I do enjoy decorating for Christmas with love, family, and hot cider!!!

I display this every year during Christmas! It may not be the most practical place to display a nativity scene, but it works at our house! The nativity scene is large and I need a large area to display it, so I use our buffet in our formal dinning room. I used red and gold deco mesh and red gilded Christmas trees for color.

GLITZY RED MESH CHRISTMAS WREATH
I want to share with you why making this wreath was so special to me!
I have always loved this particular pattern of deco mesh!. It was one
of the first patterns in the history of deco mesh. I have a lot of supplies
and one day I was rummaging around going through my seasonal items
when I stumbled upon a long lost love! I couldn't wait to get started when
I found this roll. Once I selected the ribbon all of the other embellishments
was easy to choose!
If you are one of those that remembers this mesh and you happened to be
fond of it then you can appreciate this story. Sometimes it doesn't take
much for something to make my day!

I always enjoy when the poinsettias are displayed around town and in the churches during the Christmas season!!! This one is surrounded with glistening Christmas ball ornaments, berries, fern and a touch of evergreen to bring the look of outdoors to the wreath.
Ahh...the beauty of Christmas!!!

Glitzy Copper Pumpkin Wreath
Pumpkins of a few sizes...orange sunflowers, golden mums and Autumn leaves!
I love the glitz in this wreath from the deco mesh to the beautiful cheetah ribbon!

Sometimes I think the only way to cool down in this heat is to set my mind on something cool. Some of us think of cool water....the ocean....the pool....or maybe just a cool shower. Some of us think of cool foods.... ice cream....popcicles....or sno-cones. Some of us think of cool places....the North Pole....the Rocky Mountains....or Alaska. Well, I decided to think about things I see in the fall...when the weather turns cool! Thus, the inspiration for a new flower arrangement! It may not physically cool me off, but it will bring relief to me mentally! Hope you all find your "cool spot"!!!
