Deck the Halls - The Mantel


  Here is a look at my living room coffee table and fireplace mantel Christmas decorations.  
Everyone's busy this time of year so I'll keep the commentary to a minimum.

The coffee table centerpiece is made up of my usual trio of glass hurricanes inside a wreath placed in a wooden tray. I added in some copper coloured poinsettias/beads to match the ones on the mantel.

My "Arrogant Reindeer" (tablescape from a past Christmas -  pic is my Header) is the center of attention on my fireplace mantel this year.



 Strange colour created on my wall in this pic - they are actually "Toffee Cream" not yellow!



Thanks for looking!  
I can't wait to go visit the others linked up to these terrific parties.  Thanks Susan & Carrie, for hosting!

Very pretty indeed. I love the white runner across it. I have misplaced the fabric I usually use for my mantle and have to come up with something new.
This is a good idea.

DD,
That is such a pretty mantel scarf. Even though there are many other beautiful things on and over your mantle, you see it right away. I WANT ONE. Now I have to go shopping.
Nice job with the naming of the reindeer.
Go to my blog and click on Contact at the top of the page. I have a picture to send you.

I love your Batten burg lace mantel scarf. I have a few collars of Batten burg, and some old linen table cloths, maybe I can make one for myself. What a great idea. Thanks Debbie
