Glowing Christmas Mantel

Happppppy Sunday and cheers to December!! We’ve officially made it to the Christmas season. I’ve been decorating like a mad woman over here this weekend and it’s been SO much fun. I’m pretty much done at this point and I can’t wait to start sharing my holiday decor with you lovely human beings over the next couple of weeks. But today I wanted to pop in and share my glowing Christmas mantel. I LOVE how this one came together–it has a very classic and elegant look, but it’s still very simple!

I waited to snap these photos until the sun was going down so you could see how glowy and cozy it looks at night. Isn’t Christmas decor the prettiest at nigh?! I think so. Anyway, I think this is my favorite holiday mantel look EVER.

Glowing Christmas Mantel

Pretty much everything here is from Arhaus. The stone washed velvet stockings (which are marked way down right now plus free shipping!) are seriously the prettiest stockings I’ve ever seen. They have such an elegant look! They come in green too, but I love the red. Also can we chat about that gorgeous gold Amelie Mirror?! It’s like a piece of artwork. I’ve always wanted a mirror like this for our mantel. It’s definitely a keep-forever-until-I’m-old-and-gray kinda thing!

Arhaus has such a beautiful selection of ornaments. These here are the Channel Turnip ornaments in gold. They’re made from mercury glass and I think they’re perfect for a little extra pizazz on the mantel (also marked down right now plus free shipping!). I LOVE how they look paired with the red stockings and the Layla Pillar Holders.

I absolutely love this how this glowing Christmas mantel came together!! Now I’m just wondering if I can leave this up year round?! Seems perfectly reasonable to me. All righty, I’m off to finish my holiday decor and enjoy the rest of the weekend. See you back here soooooon!!

    I have a couple of questions. The trees on the mantel are wonderful. Where did you get them?
    Also can you please tell me the paint colors on the wall.
    Thank you!,

      Hi Patricia, those trees are old ones I picked up at Michael’s a few years ago. And the paint color is Alabaster by Sherwin Williams. xo

      So pretty! I love the ornaments and the whole look. I got really blessed this season because my boyfriend gave me a bunch of red and gold Christmas ornaments and decor, and a cute snowman figure, two tree skirts, and some red and gold foliage, all of which his workplace was not going to keep since they were going to change the color scheme. They were going to throw into the trash all these originally expensive, high quality decorations. They asked if anyone wanted anything, and he was the only one who said yes,so he brought it all to me. I kept everything.

      This year, my old, cheaper quality decorations just needed to go because of wear and tear from 5 years of use, and I was sad because it just wasn’t in my budget to replace all I would have had to. I couldn’t believe how much my boyfriend brought me, and between those new things, the good quality old things, and sentimental touches, I have never had it prettier for Christmas. The things I already had coordinated perfectly, too! So grateful!

    Love all your little small details! And I love wire brushes trees! Do you have a special place you find them specifically? Either way, we’ll put together!!
