Happy Thanksgiving! Christmas Wreath and Mantle

Happy Thanksgiving!
Just in case you did not see my post last month here is my thanksgiving table to inspire you this day:

Today was my favorite day of the year . . Putting up the Christmas Decorations! What made it the best this year is having my mom here to help! love moms . .  I will spend the next few weeks sharing in detail my Christmas creations.  But today I want to show you my Outdoor wreaths and Mantle. 

I just love the way my wreaths turned out!  By grouping ornaments and ribbon in the center of the wreath it changes the traditional look of them!

I love glittery things, especially for Christmas.  I have used the Mercury type glass for my inspiration this season.  Adding in Silver, gold and White. I used the German glass glitter for the "JOY" project.  In addition to placing that on my mantel I have finials, stacked books with Partridges, and a beaded and fir garland.  I hope you get some inspiration from this!  Happy Holidays!
