2014 Family Room Mantel

 Hi there friends...
 I figured I'd start off the Christmas festivities and show you all my mantel first.
 This is my third year hanging a large wreath in this frame...I love the look!!
I  change it up a bit every year...this year I decided to add lights to the wreath.
It looks so pretty at night with our tree.


 I'm so glad I found the mate to my ginger jar! 
I added a stick of red berries and a bunch of real holly to them both.
I love holly!

 I changed the ribbon this year to this pretty burlap Christmas ribbon I found in a local shop. 
I loved the script on it.
 Do you like changing the look of your mantel every year too?
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beautiful! I love your ginger jars and the wreath looks great hanging in the frame.

I am finished with my mantel, but still have to make my wreath. Hopefully I will get it done today.

Your mantel looks beautiful! The nginger jars with the berries are the perfect accent to your lit wreath. I change it up every year too and this year it is way different since I redecorated the living room.
Have a wonderful day!!!

I love lights on the mantel at Christmastime. For some reason I left mine off this year...not sure why...maybe I was tired?
Your living room looks beautiful, Martina!

Hi Martina,
I just love the look of wreaths hanging in mirrors, and yours looks especially pretty with the lights and that pretty ribbon. I'm all finished with our mantel so I spent today working on the porch!

Stacey said...

Martina, your mantel is so elegant! I really like the lights added to the wreath. Our mantel is a little bit similar with a wreath in a frame. Maybe I got the great idea from you. :)

Kelly said...

I love the look of a wreath inside a picture frame too. Yours looks so pretty with the lights on it. How did you get the lights to work? Is it plugged in or battery operated?

The Charm of Home said...

Very pretty Martina!

JoAnne said...

It is very pretty, Martina. I really love that ribbon!

Dawn said...

Very pretty Martina. I have a huge roll script ribbon. I'm so goofy, Il never use it because I don't want to use it up. So sad,LOL. Your mantle is so pretty.

Your mantel does look pretty, and I too like the wreath inside the frame. I have Christmas stuff from one end of the Charmer to the other. I'm decorating all the rooms at the same time..don't think that was a good idea. With all the decorating we do I wish the season lasted longer:-{ Can't wait to see more!

Maria Elena said...

How beautiful, Martina! Your mantle is just perfect!

Elizabeth BlueClearSky said...

Oh, I love the wreath in the vintage frame. Our mantel is still unfinished about 3 years later lol. We really need to get busy on it. I do enjoy using our other Christmas decor in different ways each year though.

Art and Sand said...

I love the wreath hung in the frame. I'm not complaining, but since my husband paints for a living, we always have paintings on the wall and I can't do the frame thing.

Everything looks beautiful and welcoming.
