Mantel & Tree 2012

(Find the pallet art HERE, pallet trough HERE, and wreath tutorial HERE)


This years tree and mantel is totally different than something I would pick out for myself. A friend of mine that moved gave me all of her Christmas decorations. Awesome, right!? I typically go for more of the woodsy, earthy theme but her colors were champagne, gold, and bronze with a a smidge of maroon. Way more glitz than I’m used to!

I must say, I am in love! Now I have two sets of décor themes and can switch it up each year if I want.


And now I will overload you with pictures of my tree and mantel.






Spot the weenie dog!




Don’t you love how the weights add to the décor? Those are there to give the illusion that I actually work out.




I just love my lantern that I got at Homegoods. It’s perfect for filling with fun things like ornaments!




I got this reindeer a few years ago to paint and never got around to it. Glad I didn’t because he fits in perfectly with these colors!






What are your go to Christmas colors??
