I love decorating our mantel for each season. I grew up in a restaurant that was in a colonial mansion and my mom used to decorate each of the 6 mantels for the different seasons with dried hydrangea and clippings. They were absolutely beautiful.
Here's my Christmas Mantel for this year:
|Christmas Mantel 2012|
It is very simple with green and silver accents. We gathered pine branches from Norris Reservation the other weekend and used them in our centerpieces and on the mantel. Conor found so many great branches.

Each year my parents give the boys a Christmas decoration and this year they gave them these gorgeous reindeer encrusted in sparkle from the UK.
I added the glitter wreath over the mirror and love how it looks:
