Oh Deer! Our Christmas Mantel.

Christmas Ideas 02.28.15
This is what happens when you just start decorating without a plan, and all you have to start with is a beautiful deer head and some lanterns. Welcome to "Fly by Your Seat Decorating." Pinecones, Cedar, Magnolia, Berries, Grapevine and Pheasant Feathers.

All combined with some Frenchy-style stockings and pillows and some soft candlelight.

I hope you enjoy!

    I don't have a mantel, but you have inspried me to take a hall table and pretend it is one! Love what you have done!!!

    Terri - I am getting ready to post about my hutch which would also be a good substitute for a mantel. Yes, a hall table will work very good too. Good luck.

    Wondering if you would be able to provide retail info for the deer head. I'm looking for one very similar for a little boy nursery and haven't been able to locate one.. Thanks so much!
