A Winter Mantel Display

A Winter Mantel Display

I find the house sad after you put away the Christmas decor. It was so festive and decorated when it was up, but now it can be rather bare and uninspiring. So…I decided to keep some of the items used for Christmas out. I wanted to create winter displays with them here and there around the house.

A Winter Mantel

On the mantel in the living room I left holly greens with berries along with the winter birds and bird cage candle holders. I love how the candles glow at night in the room. They give the display a romantic feel, especially now it’s winter.

I switched the yellow/gold stars I had on the mantel with these snowflake ornaments. I like the brightness of the snowflakes in the design.

I placed beige toned hydrangeas towards the back of the bird cages. I like how they blend with the dried green hydrangeas I already had there. The florals give the winter display a soft appearance.

The bird theme I had used during Christmas is carried on into winter. The birds create a friendly and welcoming feeling on the mantel.

I didn’t have to change much in the design on the mantel from Christmas, but with only a few switches and additions to the look, the display has transformed into a lovely winter display.

  1. LuAnn, I love your mantle and this idea of keeping something “wintery” out during the more dreary months, especially after the let-down of no more festive Christmas décor…I always hate to see the house looking bare after taking down all the pretty things. Winter has come with a vengeance, going from 70’s to teens in a snap, but I have to say that it just didn’t seem like Christmas with the warm temps.

    • Hi Bobbi! I like to keep somethings up after Christmas for my winter look. I have done so for quite awhile now. I change them a little and then add something for Valentine’s Day to them right before February.
      Winter showed up here too. You are right, it didn’t seem like Christmas, it was too warm. We know some people who BBQ Christmas Day. Sunday it’s suppose to be in the 50 with rain. Then in the 30s next week. I’m having my daughter’s baby shower on Sunday and I’m thankful for the rain and not snow. She is due to have her son on Valentine’s Day, but her latest ultrasound shows her earlier. I say Ground Hog Day now! I joked with her, if he sees his shadow…she said oh no! lol Either way I can’t wait to see my first grandchild!
      It’s always a pleasure hearing from you!

  2. Hi Luann, the mantel is gorgeous. I’ve always admired the blue color and your treasures and greenery look so beautiful with it. I just blogged about the Winter decorating dilemma here at my house. 🙂 Have a great day!
