• Give Thanks and Decorate!
    Thanksgiving is almost here. It’s more fun to count your blessing surrounded by seasonal fall décor! Make your house feel festive with these fun ideas for decorating your fireplace mantel and home for the holiday.

    The Focal Point: The Fireplace

    Our favorite area to decorate is – you guessed it – the fireplace mantel. You get the most bang for your buck and effort decorating the mantel, since the fireplace is the focus of attention of the room. Set the tone for the holiday by adorning it in hues of amber and red.
