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.
