Yup it is almost February and I have finally come up with a winter mantel display. But I have a good excuse for my tardiness. We have only just entered winter time here, temps will be dropping below freezing all week.
So I needed a new mantel display, but I didn’t feel like going for too much Spring in it. I For this mantel display I wanted to have only a hint of Spring, or maybe even more like a hope of Spring while still keep it wintery and pretty serene.
So I combined lots of different variations of my favorite color: white.
That works in every season
I needed a backdrop so I tried out my white pallet wood board that you might remember from my 2011 summer mantel. I removed all the bottle hangers and turned it sideways. Now it is the perfect backdrop, for my rejuvenated twig wreath.
No decorative display without flowers. A small bunch of grocery store white roses, did the trick.
I am digging the combination of elements. The romantic roses in the rugged galvanized containers. The white painted palette wood and the white-washed twigs.
I think they enhance each other nicely.
I guess that means that some new outdoor decorations should be next on my list……
Oh the ways we keep ourselves busy……
Keep warm, my friends, keep warm…
