So this years mantle is a little bit of the same as last year. Balls in a glass jar, the same stockings with the same trees standing by the fireplace.
The two new things: my homemade glitter star and a wreathe that I threw together (thanks for hanging it Jer) with a too tiny-of-a-bow. But it works. :)
I'm loving the simple-ness and bright-ness of it all.
We are MEGA Christmas-stocking-givers. Sometimes I would prefer stocking stuffers (my mom gives the best stocking stuffers) over regular gifts. And since we fill them to the brim, my cute little J-O-Y stocking holders can't hang with the weight of them. So we use these small ones for decor only.
We had to move some things around since the Christmas tree is now where our chairs and Boston's play table was. The chairs are now next to the tv and Boston's table is now near our buffet table near the front door.
