A fresh garland, green mercury glass baubles and twinkling houses in the firebox- today we are talking about this European inspired Christmas fireplace mantel.
Fresh Garland – Christmas Fireplace Mantel
I shared a peek at this mantel and fireplace styling last week and got so many questions about the houses and the garland on the mantel. I will share more about putting the houses together soon- today it is all about that beautiful garland on the mantel.
Fresh Eucalyptus Garland
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of fresh eucalyptus- I use it all year long in flower arrangements and love to use it during the holidays on the mantel and table as well. This garland is one that I custom ordered from the SF Flower Mart. It is a mix of different types of eucalyptus and a little bit of bay leaf as well.
Tied up with Ribbons and Bows
I wanted this mantel to have a very French or European look- and so, kept it simple. I added a double layer ribbon- blush with a velvet green and tied a bow and left the ends long and flowy.
Brass & Green Mercury Glass
On the top of the mantel, I placed several vintage brass candlesticks in the center and added a few green mercury glass baubles.
The candlesticks at each end are a carved wood- I got them several years ago.
In the firebox- it is all about those pretty little houses stacked up on the hill like a little European village. I used 3 sets for this since this fireplace box is extra large- you can see more about them HERE and shop the look below.
