A Thanksgiving Mantel

This time of year is one of seasonal decorating for me. In Minnesota, 
it is bare and quite cold.  While I'm not quite ready to decorate for Christmas...
I do begin to bring in deeper color for Thanksgiving and 
greenery that will last through the season!

I just finished putting together a pretty Thanksgiving mantel using 
some new goodies from Oriental Trading and some natural elements!
I started by lining the mantel with dried hydrangea, preserved leaves and some faux pheasant feathers. I also added two topiaries I had, for seasonal greenery.

I added a beautiful set of two Copper Lanterns at each end. 
They come with a large and small size, and I love the metallic look they add. 
With all the dried materials, I would only use flameless candles on this mantel.

I also nestled some Wooden Candle Holders amongst the leaves and hydrangea.  They hold tealight size flameless and come three to a set.  I used two sets for decorative highlights, and the wood texture is so pretty!

On the mirror, I hung a lovely Fall Magnolia Leaves Pinecone Wreath. It's quite pretty, and I love the color tones and the pinecones.  I think it would 
be perfect on a table with one of the lanterns in the middle, too!

  10. The mantle looks amazing Linda. I especially love the pheasant feathers and the dried hydrangeas. So delicate and pretty.

    I bet it looks magical with the candles flickering (good call about no real flames ;)
