Decking the Halls {The Parlor Mantle}

I shared my front door and front facade with you. Now, come on in! Today, I'd like to share my parlor mantle. 

The mantle is one of my favorite places to decorate. It is a focal point in the parlor and is fun and easy to change up seasonally.

The design started with this deer print purchase from Sotre on Magazine Street. I just loved the deer in a warm sweater. The painting is actually on an old book page. I fell in LOVE. And from there things just fell into place.

I found these dapper deer while flipping through a copy of Grandin Road magazine. They are sold in sets of 2, and I adore them too.

I added my collection of vintage trophy cups and filled each with boxwood orbs, glittery red ornaments, and other curiosities.

The mixed live greenery, stockings from Ballard Designs, vintage letters, and tartan ribbon make for an interesting look.

Red orbs sit in the clam shell at the base of the mantle.

I just love this season. Stay tune for more Decking the Halls with Uptown Acorn.

Decking the Mantle, y'all!
