4 Tips to Dress Up Your Mantel for the Holidays | The Lakeside Collection

4 Tips To Dress Up Your Mantel

Lighted matel decorations, Lakeside.

In the spring and summer, the mantel and fireplace disappear from view as we trade our time in the living room for outdoor activities. Now that winter chills are keeping us inside, indoor decor requires some attention and it's time to refresh the mantel for the holidays. Here are 4 tips to dress up your mantel.

Center

Like the dining room table, your mantel should have a centerpiece. For year-round decor, a large piece of art, a mirror or sentimental photographs will draw eyes to the top of the fireplace, but for the holidays, you can build a festive centerpiece in front of your year-round art to create celebratory ambiance. Choose something striking to catch your eye; a gourd arrangement or pumpkins for Halloween, and Thanksgiving add yellows and oranges to add warmth and a fall feel to a room. For Christmas and Hanukkah, poinsettias, stars and candelabras are ideal objects to use as a focal point that evokes the spirit of the time of year that brings family together.

Sides

For secondary decor, dress either side of your primary piece with complementary items. Select decorative accents that are smaller than the centerpiece, but they should come in pairs to create symmetry to gradually draw your eye to the center of the mantel; they don't have to match, but a similar theme keeps the idea uniform without the potential of looking cluttered and creates a feeling of balance and harmony. Holiday statuettes or baskets filled with fall leaves or holly make your home a warm holiday retreat for friends and family.


Minor Embellishments

Garnish your mantel with garland you might use for outdoor Christmas decorations or lighted holiday branches that illustrate the fall and winter holidays. You can even use string lights to give the mantel a warm glow and light the room with those rather than use harsh overhead lighting. Draping the garland just over the edge of the mantel adds texture and softness to the sharp edges of the mantel. Between the string lights and branches, a sprinkling of holiday trinkets brings the whole picture together.

Lighting

If you're looking for something permanent to highlight your mantel, sconces are a decorative way to light up the fireplace. For holiday lighting, candles bring a glimmer and brilliance of a flicker with the softness you need in a cozy home on a cold winter night. Candles don't have to be real. The flare of an electric candle is just as soothing as the real thing without the potential mess of melting wax and without the risk of having an open flame next to the kids as they make their lists to send to Santa.

Decorating the mantel is just one way to bring joy to your home this holiday season. It doesn't have to overflow with Christmas ornaments to have a festive flair; a few glittering curios to enhance the mantel will make your home a holiday haven.


The Lakeside Collection has everything you need to make your home a destination for the holidays. Whether you need gifts for grandparents and grandkids or you want to spruce up your country kitchen for holiday entertaining, shop Lakeside for great holiday items at low prices.
