These are my adorable owls that sit on my coffee table. They greet you when you walk into the house because my living room is the first thing you see from the entry.
Here is my decorated garland. You’ll see the whole room in all it’s glory soon but this is just a quick fix. I am so happy to have two fireplaces to decorate this year, I love my new house! My tree is in the family room because that’s where we spend all our time.
Just so you know, I was almost done the family room tree and garland and I decided I hated it, so I tore it all apart and started again. I realized that the reason it looked bad was because the National Geographic Magazines that I have on the bookshelf behind the tree are an orange yellow colour, and the gold garland I decorated the tree with looked like a bad, greeny yellow in comparison. So I inserted a white garland instead and it looks great. Pictures to follow soon!
I love these bright green frosted balls I found at Great Canadian Superstore.
These magnolia leaves I already had from last year.
And you’ll recognize these boxes from last years mantle as well.
Having a garland this elaborate on your fireplace mantle is almost as great as having a tree, If you don’t have room or just aren’t into the trouble of setting one up, you just need 2 – 8 ft green garlands with some pine cones, sparkly garland and lights.
