Sometimes I like to play with different decorating ideas. You know, it might look like re-arranging the furniture, rotating art- or in my case, dressing my fireplace mantel with pretty flowers! Earlier this week I shared our Christmas Mantel- but first I tried something else. I absolutely love this look… it’s a little bit vintage, glam and rustic all rolled into one. As I like to call it, it’s my rustic glam Christmas mantel!
It wasn’t our permanent Christmas mantel, and definitely is more non-traditional with all of that pink, but there is something so soft and feminine- especially when paired with that guilded french chair. I just love it! My husband on the other hand… well, he thought it was nice- and again used that same term “wild” as when I showed him my wreath. ha!
If I could find a pile of blush peonies I would just go crazy…. oh my goodness, I hope and pray all of the peony bushes I planted last spring will bloom this year… even just one. These blooms are faux- but honestly you would never know. I simply removed the stems and nestled them within the greenery.
This mantel taught me a few things. One: Greenery makes the best base- from there you can build it into any look you want just by dressing it up. Two: I absolutely heart flowers. Three: I love a little vintage glam. mm hmm. Yes I do!
It might be time for me to run away and join a florist shop… a girl can dream. If you want to check out where our mantel landed, you can see it here. This one was too pretty not to share…
