Why Should Mantles Have All the Fun?!?

December has flown by!!  I knew it would, but I can't believe Christmas is this week already!  I always have this long list of things to do during December it seems -- shopping, wrapping gifts, decorating, work, blog posts, baking, entertaining, shopping, wrapping!  :)

So I am crossing a few things off my list!  Not because I finished them, but  because I am not going to finish them!  I think my sanity is a little more important than a DIY wreath tutorial post that I didn't get to!!  Thanks for understanding!

Decorating my Office
Christmas Decorating {Part 3}
DIY Christmas Artwork

But maybe I can get a few more Christmas posts out....before Christmas.............

I don't know about you, but I don't have a mantle.  Or a fireplace for that matter!  So, during the holidays, especially for Christmas, I kind of treat my entry way table as my "mantle" because you can style it in kind of the same way!

I start with something tall in the middle -- for me it's a tall antique, gold mirror from the den.  Then I layer in a table runner, an artificial garland of greenery, add in some pine cones and some Christmas decor.

"December 25" sign is from end of the year 2013 discount at Meijer
Silver Deer Head also end of year discount at Meijer
Red & Black Buffalo Check table runner is actually a scarf from Goodwill
Red Yarn Tree is a DIY from a couple years back
Paper Tree is DIY a couple years back from dictionary pages

I will be entertaining and hosting family on Christmas Eve at my house.  I love having a decorated entry way to greet my guests.

Only 3 more days till Christmas!!!
