Christmas Mantel in Wintery White

The mantel is a natural focal point for Christmas decorating. ¬†After all, that’s where the man in the red suit makes his entrance!

This year’s mantel matches the rest of our house, with white decorations setting a wintery scene.

These felt stockings in a lovely natural cream felt on sale at West Elm. I added felt circles with our initials to personalize them.

These little wooden houses are actually a work in progress. I’ve always wanted to have a Christmas village display, but I wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary. When my manager at work found these little bird houses at our local craft store, I knew they would be the foundation for my village. So far, I’ve painted them white. I want to add some wood embellishments, but we had some company this weekend, so I put up them up as-is. I’ll show you the finished village when I’m done!
