Out of all things holiday, mantles might be our favorite to decorate. Fireplaces really are the heart of the home, and there's nothing better than finally getting to deck them out for the holidays. Although there are countless ways to decorate mantles, we have a formula we've used over the years to create the perfect simple yet festive mantle. If you're looking for inspiration on how to decorate your mantle this year, here are some ideas:
DRAPE YOUR GARLAND TO ONE SIDE
Our stylists love doing this to create an unbalanced, imperfect and elegant look. You can do this by laying your garland flat over the top and letting one side hang lower than the other. If you’re using a garland that isn’t heavy enough to weigh down on it’s own, try securing it under one of your stocking holders!
2. STAGGER YOUR DECOR
Instead of doing equal amounts of decor per side, our team likes to unbalance items to create more interest. If you're draping your garland to one side, try styling your taller items on the other! If you're going garland-less, try using potted greenery on one side with shorter, contrasting decor on the other.
3. ADD SOME BELLS AND WHISTLES
If you love the look of uniform stockings but still want to personalize them for each family member, our styling team recommends adding bells, ornaments, letters, or even ribbons in different colors to set them apart.
