I think it's time to get this Christmas party started!
Since the sun decided to grace us with its presence today,
I was finally able to get some pictures of my Christmas decor.
Let's start with the mantel for today...
I used this big candy cane on my mantel several years ago,
so I thought it was time to bring it back out.
It was my starting point, followed by the candy cane striped ribbon.
From there, it went into a whole red, white & green candy cane theme!
The red candle hurricanes are new & from the Christmas Tree Shop.
I figured I couldn't go wrong for $5 each.
I got the white wire cloches on clearance this Summer at Michaels.
I used my Ikea metal containers that I know so many of us have & love,
and added a candy cane to each.
I made the bows & the paper circle garland several weeks ago,
and hoped I would like them once I got the mantel decor all together.
I was glad all went according to plan, for once!
Of course, a candy cane was needed for the wood bucket, too!
It really was an easy mantel to put together.
I hope you enjoyed my candy cane inspired mantel.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be back with lots more!
