Valentine’s “Mantel”

IMG_0730 IMG_0731 IMG_0732 IMG_0733

As we don’t have a fireplace, we don’t really have a mantel.  So I created one using our server in the dining room.  Lately I’ve taken a fancy to decorating for the holidays.  I don’t do every one (no Mardi Gras, for example) but I will do most of the biggies.

1. Subway art is my favorite thing.  It’s easy and I keep subway art for each holiday right in the frame and just switch them out.

2. Holiday candy is fun and easy.  I just display in clear jars.

3. Instead of buying things, I just walk around and pull out things that fit the color scheme.

4. Banners; there are lots of free printable banners I make out of paper and ribbon.

Happy holidays!  All of them 🙂
