Every few years (sometimes every year) I feel the need to change up my holiday decor. My style evolves. Sometimes the changes are small; old things go out and new things come in. However I usually hesitate to do a complete Christmas decor overhaul. The thought of spending that much money on decor that will only be up about a month is hard. I went ahead and took the plunge this year and I’ve decked the halls in Aqua & Red.
Today I’m sharing my new Aqua and Red Christmas Mantel……..
You may spot my Window Ornament Hanger up there! I created that beauty 4 years ago and I still love it. With the simple change up of the ornaments it’s transformed and I love it even more now!
Okay I must admit something. I am slightly addicted to Christmas stockings. This addiction came as a surprise to me but now that I’m the owner of 3 different sets of stockings, I’d say I have a problem. I wasn’t loving the ones I currently had anymore and I happen to be strolling down the stocking aisle in Hobby Lobby and what should I find? Aqua and red stockings? They practically leapt into the basket. My kids were pretty concerned that Santa would not know who’s stocking was who’s…..so I added some sparkly initials to top them off!
Do you spot my Now Dasher, Now Dancer Subway Art down there? I needed some more aqua Christmas decor to finish up my home and aqua isn’t really the easiest holiday decor to find. So I just whipped up some of my own. See that Deer Head Sign too? Tutorial to come!!!
I am so happy with the way my Aqua and Red Christmas Mantel came together. I didn’t want it to be too fussy, yet it looks complete. It also fits in perfectly with my living room!
I know it’s a little funky and a little different but I’m loving the Aqua and Red! I’d love to know what your Christmas colors are in the comments section???
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
My son has been singing this song non-stop lately…..let’s just call this Now Dasher, Now Dancer Subway Art his cheat sheet ; )
