A White Christmas!


Hi there!

I'm so excited that you joined us.

If you're new here, I hope you have a look around.


Inspiration for this years mantel was easy peasy.

A white theme just seemed right, you know~



This alluring aqua was a no brainer

Adore it!.


More aqua love happening here.


Paper whites were a must.

I thought I had planted them early enough to make a debut for the party...but.

That's ok.

Patience is a virtue.


Along with the white/aqua theme I wanted simplicity to nestle right in.


What's prettier than a package ;)


The stockings were from last year.


How much fun are snowballs!

You can make them too. Here.


A painted branch from the backyard.

Priceless....really.

Small white birdies and aqua ornaments came from the Dollar Tree.


I hope you enjoyed your visit here.

Want to see more Christmas mantels?

The girl's are having a party over at Layla's!

Come join the fun!
Hope to see ya'll there!

May all your Christmases Be white~

Susie~

  13. Beautiful! I love those aqua ornaments. The Dollar Tree? Are you kidding me? Wow. The branch...genius. The birds...love them too. The idea of putting paperwhites in an apothecary jar is truly inspired. Thanks for this lovely peek inside your home.

  20. So serene and lovely! :) I wanted to do the whole aqua and white theme this year too, but I would have had to buy a ton of stuff...so maybe I'll get it on clearance this year for next year. :) I'm frugal that way! lol
    Have a great week and see ya at Laylas....I couldn't wait to post mine early either! :)

  29. I LOVE your mantel! It is beautiful! We are in the process of renovating our new home we are just purchasing. It has 4 fireplaces! I have never had a fireplace mantel to decorate ever and am so excited about this! I am now following your blog and will follow on twitter as well, as I need all the design help I can get with the new house.

  43. so beautiful!

    everything! i think my favorite part is the paper whites planted in your hurricanes nestled in all the blue & whites.

    i planted paperwhites already, but i think i might just have to copy your idea of using a hurricane. then they wont fall over!

    ;)

  70. So how terrible would it be if I copied your mantle exactly? I've been scouring my catalogs looking for inspiration (our new house has 3 - count them - 3 - Fireplaces). This idea is perfect, and I think I have most of the things already on hand. Although I'm sure I'll find a reason to go and do just a bit of shopping. I think the white branch of birds is my favorite. I always know where to come when I need design inspiration - THanks.

  71. I painted myself some white branches today. I really like how it looks on my mantle. Thanks for the inspiration! I'll be posting a picture in the next day or two.
