– Washington Irving

Deck the halls!

To set the perfect mood in time for the festivities, you might find yourself running around looking for last-minute presents for loved ones, buying ingredients for the ultimate Christmas lunch or just trying to get the decoration in your house looking just right. 


Whatever it is that you are busy doing in the last few days before Christmas, it can tend to be a little stressfull!

To ease your stress and help you to effortlessly warm the hearts of those around you, here is the ultimate list of Christmas decor for your mantelpiece. And in case you have not got a mantelpiece, check out the previous post where you can learn to build your own in just a few hours. It will all be worth it when you see the smiles on the faces of your loved ones as you gather around to celebrate this very special time of year.

Fill it with love!

Staying true to the spirit of individuality, this list is divided into 2 sections; one for those of you who love Christmas stockings and another for those who don’t.

Let’s kick-start with Christmas stockings. They are simply a wonderful way to add to the Holiday cheer. You can leave them hanging on the mantel for purely decorative purposes or take it a step further and fill them with smaller gifts that will make everyone all the more excited. To add that extra special touch, have the names of your family members embroidered on the stockings.

On this mantel, each stocking is unique in colour and size, making it pretty pretty easy for each family member to identify their own. The stars above themantel are a stunning addition to the overall look.


“Joy” is the appropriate emotion to associate with this charming mantelpiece. The playful combination of bright reds and over-sized decor will undoubtedly melt the heart of just about anyone.
