{ Elegant Cottage Christmas Mantel }

 Hey my pals!! Today is all about our Christmas mantel upstairs!! Of course I'll be blogging the lower level as well, but I wanted to start out simple upstairs fireplace mantel first.. If you've been following me for years you know I go more staged formal upstairs with Christmas decor & more fun traditional downstairs where we open gifts, entertain etc.. Today I'm showcasing our elegant cottage mantel..A simple, fancy but cozy mantel + decor to start out the season!! Come see more below!

I had a simple creamy elegant idea in my head with a touch of fancy! I stuck with real frosted pinecone { they smell delicious} , gold beading & lots of creams! 

The gold beading pairs nice with the orange & browns for that elegant vintage vibe 👌! I used an old coal bucket with birch logs & crocks to house our trees!

The focal point of the mantel of course is the NOEL wood sign! It brings in that rustic yet elegance with the two tone gold/ wood desigMaking of a Mantel:n & brings the gold beading together! The brass gold candle sticks add a touch of traditional goodness! Probably the easiest Christmas mantel ever!

Here's a sneak peek of some more of the vintage cottage farm living room! Simple, authentic & comfy! Again, super light on decor this year upstairs!

The copious amounts of cream & almond candles not only look esthetically pleasing but also smell great! The white framed tv & beadboard walls add the texture & style to the overall look!

Honestly I wanted vintage brown trees for up here, but unfortunately they are hard to come by..I'm okay with these gorgeous flocked beauties though! I'll be back SOON with another mantel look!
