Christmas Mantle

Happy Monday! Can you believe Christmas is 7 days away?! I’m freaking out– I haven’t bought the first gift. As a designer sometimes we are SO busy helping others that time just flies right on by. Although I did catch enough of a break to spruce up our office a bit for the holidays.

These gray and white gingham pillows where were it all started. I never go into Kirklands and just happened to visit their new location in our town, once I was in there I fell in love. They’re the perfect mix of Evan and Company and comfort. BTW, those pillows are on sale for $13.99 this week.

The mantel is the focal point of our office space. My desk sits in front of it and clients face it each time they come in. As always I wanted to create something that was brand cohesive and fun so I pulled together shades of gray, white and silver. Of course it had to match our pillows too.

A mixture of silver ribbon, taper and pillar candles, wrapped gift boxes and silver ball ornaments made up this years holiday mantle. These are mostly things I had around the office from years of christmas decor and collecting.

My tree is an artificial 6ft slim fraser fur that I actually picked up from Wal-mart about 3 years ago. I know, don’t judge me. But it was cheap and I was desperate and Wal-Mart was right there. I think my favorite addition are the white planter boxes we acquired from an event this past November. Doesn’t it make the perfect “tree skit/ stand”?!?

The tree has a about 4 rolls of ribbon on it,  an assortment of ornaments and picks. Each year I collect more and more stuff. The ornaments were purchased from Hobby Lobby a several years ago and the ribbon and picks are from a local floral outlet.

It’s certainly makes me smile each time I walk into work. What do you think? Have you thought of some ways to incorporate some over these ideas into your home of office decor next year?

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back later this afternoon for a Christmas Tradition that we skipped last year, but   you’ll want to be a part of this year.

Oh and for those of you that are curious I linked some of my office furnishings here. They’re on sale this week too: Desk  Office Chair | Arm Chairs
