As with the changing seasons, the parlor mantle is never immune to getting a holiday spruce up.
This year, I went pretty simple (for the Uptown Acorn, that is) with fresh greenery from my favorite Mitch’s Flowers on Magazine Street and bows in regal stripes of gold and red.
3 oyster shell garlands were added to the greenery as well as berry clusters.
On top of the mantle, two shiny textured gold reindeer which I purchased recently at Hazelnut sit atop and aside vintage leather bound reads. In the middle, greenery and glittered pomegranates look great in the vintage English oak bowl.
At the mantle’s base, I filled the large clam shell with more glittery orbs and pomegranates. I know. I know. I still have not gold leafed the inside. I will. I promise.
