Christmas Mantel @ Blue Creek Home

I just finished decorating the mantel and I really like it.  It is totally different from last year. 
The main Christmas tree is also in the great room and it remained the same as last year – lime green and red.
I thought I would use whites, creams, and lime green for the mantel and it looks very nice together.
Notice too,  that my mustard walls are gone too.  It makes such a huge difference in this room.

The large architectural piece was over Caroline’s bed
We took it down when the room was redone for Alex and baby Mason
I am loving this color combination
Candle holders are inexpensive make-overs that I have had forever
Glitter snow man is from TJ Maxx – got him for $5.00 because he had come off his base
The little white bird branches are from The Dollar Tree this year –
the large beaded ball was 1/2 price after Christmas last year
The bottlebrush wreaths were purchased at Big Lots last year
I just purchased this wonderful white beaded garland last week
Cloche filled with lime green glass ornaments on a plate that G-Man made in pottery class
Wooden horse from CSN Stores – glitter star from Deborah @ Fairfield House
2009 Mantel
I am joining the Christmas Mantel Party over at The Lettered Cottage.   You must check out the many, many mantels that are already there… so much inspiration!


  1. That is gorgeous !!
    Thank you for the beautiful
    inspiration ~


  2. Wow! It looks BEAUTIFUL! You did a nice job of layering everything. It is rich looking and lovely! hugs- Diana

  3. Your mantle is gorgeous!! I love how you used all the creams with the green!! So beautiful!

  4. How elegant! I've seen a lot of white decorating this year but I believe yours is the prettiest by far. I love using the lime green and white together and in fact found a lot of lime green, white and silver ornaments I must have bought last year on sale and forgot I had...I started to do all lime green and white this year but stayed with my traditional greens, reds and golds.


  5. New all color = very pretty!
    Your mantel is amazing!! So full and gorgeous!! I must say, I really want those candlesticks!

  6. Beautiful, Rhonda! I love those wreaths! Your garland looks wonderful and I've decided I must do one on my mantel. From the pictures of everyone else's mantels, I think it really makes more of an impact.

  7. Beautiful!! I love all the layers and details, great job!

  8. It's absolutely gorgeous... love the creams mixed in with the green!!!
