It’s that time of year – the holidays are fast approaching! If you’re anything like us, you’re already thinking about seasonal décor and how you can highlight your home’s best attributes with fun and festive adornments. As the heart of your home, the fireplace is a great place to showcase your holiday best – and to help you get started, we’ve partnered with Heatilator to compile our favorite tips for decorating the mantel:
- Picture Perfect: Adorn your mantel with fun, colorful frames filled with photos of family and friends. It’s a great way to highlight favorite holiday memories from years past, like the annual visit to see Santa, and allows you to reminisce about how your family has grown and changed over the years!
- Dress it up: Dress your mantel with garland, and add special touches – like berries, flowers, or festive ribbons – for a polished look. It’s also a great way to incorporate additional decorations, like seasonal candles, nutcrackers, or figurines, into your mantel.
- Pop of Color: Play around with different color schemes, like traditional red and green, or sophisticated white, silver, and gold, to find what suits you best. You can even change this out each year to punch up your holiday décor!
- Stocking Stuffers: While hanging the same stockings every year can keep with tradition, it’s also fun to try new things. Keep Santa guessing by occasionally refreshing your stockings with different colors and styles.
