Christmas Mantel



I started my Christmas decor and got my mantel done to show.  My daughter hosts Thanksgiving so that gives me the opportunity to decorate early.



This year I used lambs ear garland and added twinkle lights.  Have you seen the twinkle lights.  Some lights twinkle and some stay stationary which makes it so pretty with just a few of the lights twinkling. 

Hard to tell how pretty the twinkle lights are in a stationary pic.  Trust me the are so sweet and pretty.

I just love the glow of the candles at night.  Very warm and pretty.  I got out my stash of brass candlesticks which look nice with the brass in my chandelier.



I think the brass candlesticks look pretty on the white mantel.

I brought out my sweet angels to put on the mantel.




At night the mantle is so pretty with the twinkle lights.  I love the softness of my Christmas Mantel.  Hope to show you more of my decor in the coming days.
For those of you that start early with decor hope you are enjoying the warmth of the christmas lights.

 
My girlfriend party was a success and everyone had a wonderful time.  I missed having this party since Covid! It was fun to finally be able to get all of us together to enjoy a night of fun and friendship.  I am already thinking about next year's party.

I did not take a lot of pics since I was busy being the hostess.  Next year I will have to try and remember to take more pictures or get a designator photographer!

Have a great week.
Hugs,
Kris

  2. Kris, your mantel is gorgeous. I love the lamb's ear with the twinkling lights. The angels look so beautiful with the glow of the candles. I love the shot of your mantel with the reflection of your pretty chandelier. The party I am sure was a big hit. You always throw a fabulous party. Send me a video of the twinkling lights and I will add it to your blog. xoxo

  3. Your Christmas mantle is beautiful, Kris. Love it and I use the twinkling lights, too. I love them at night and the sparkle they add over the regular lights. I do mix them up, too.

    The party was SOOO much fun. I am so blessed to be able to attend your girlfriend parties. I feel like I have known you as a life-long friend. I will say that you and I are probably a bad mix sitting next to each other---it is wicked and wickeder. lol.

    Don't our girls look cute? My girls had so much fun and they are already talking about next year's party. I told them we might not be invited back....lol...especially Mindy. lol.

    Have a great rest of the week, Kris, and thanks again!!!!! xo Diana

  8. Good morning dearest Kris!!!

    I can't tell you enough how special this is to me; I won't be able to decorate this year due to the mess I have going on in my house because of our bedroom renovation. All the contents from the upstairs bedroom are in my living room, my studio and even our great room! One of the things I love the most about holiday decorating is putting out my stash of brass candlesticks and lighting up the entire row of windows facing the street as well as my mantles. Yours is GORGEOUS beyond expression my friend. You do white and brass perfectly!

  29. Hi Kris,
    Oh, your mantle looks so lovely, I love all the lights and the angels are so pretty, I absolutely love angels. That is nice you can get a jump on things early. I would like to get my tree up at least but just not decorate it, but not sure if I will have time since our Daughter and Hubby are coming in on Monday, but it can wait if need be. Glad to hear your girlfriend party went so well, I am sure it was great fun for all of you. Nice picture. Take care hon, Blessings, Nellie
