Our Christmas mantel was done earlier in the week but I wasn’t up to sharing until today.
I’d like to share with you our simple, red and white themed Christmas Mantel.
I’m not one to decorate with white, it just happened when I decided I wouldn’t remove my Hydrangea wreath. If you’d like to see the Fall look click here. I enjoy it so, might not be typical Holiday look, but that’s OK. Winter is my favorite season and it does remind me of that.

I re-wrapped the hoop in red burlap and added a ribbon of upholstery jute around the white basket.
Greens were collected from our yard to make a tiny garland and added a fabric flower I made using red/white ticking fabric.
The white tree is from last year and placed inside a ironstone soup tureen. The red paper mache Santa, white enamel pot and washboard were recent finds. Most of the garland greenery is fresh from our yard.
The white Holland mold ceramic sleight was just found, filled with pine cones and red berry.
On the other side the taller reindeer was gold and spray painted white to match the ceramic one I just found. Wanted it to look like a mother and child. The pitcher has a very pretty winter tree scene on it, I also used it last year. The white boa feather wreath and red tray are recent finds too.
I love the red/white/green combo. They just pop against each other.
I was happy when I realized I could leave most of this up after the holidays.
Our holiday mantel, all festive with red and white. The weekend is supposed to be beautiful here, so Mr. Charmer will be outside working on the holiday lights as I decorate our buffet.
