I always dress the mantle and sideboard in the den plus our tree. You'll see the tree later this week cause it had a little accident earlier and it's topper is crooked so we'll have to fix that!
Here we go.....
I think a lot of us have been smitten by the mercury glass bug. I've picked up several candlesticks here and there during the year
A simple lighted garland with extra ornaments left over from the tree, the mercury glass candlesticks and Santa - that's all!
Now let's move to the sideboard on the opposite end of the room...
I used a big wrought iron and glass hurricane thingy, filled it with more ornaments, another garland across the back, candy cane candles and another Santa
There are lots of uses for those extra ornaments - just look around and fill in where needed
Candy cane candles for the grandbabies
I will post pictures of the tree later this week - it's so pretty. We always put it in an urn on top of a mahogany chest. I have vaulted ceilings and this gives it the height it needs as it is only a 6 foot tree. Next year I want to have a big, big tree next to the fireplace as all the grandchildren will be old enough to not knock it over.
