A Coastal Christmas Mantel and a Link Party

I have a mantel this year and I was so anxious to decorate my new shiplapped fireplace for a coastal Christmas.  I found these gorgeous magnolia leaf garlands earlier this year, and wrapped them one around the other to make them extra thick.  Adding a bit of the coastal feel I used a pair of starfish in the middle looking like a star.  My redesigned Christmas trees wrapped in rope and trimmed with coastal elements they kept the continuity of my theme.a-coastal-christmas-mantel-745x1024-1


Coastal Christmas DIY treesI hope you are checking things off your list for Christmas as well as I am!  For me it is down to some gift wrapping and then hopefully a little time for baking.  Without a tree this year, I have wrapped my gifts and gathered them around our fireplace.  Wrapping them in brown paper, tying them with string and trimming them extra starfish and shells.

Coastal Christmas packages

Gifts were wrapped with brown paper and tied with string.  These couple of metal and wood boat are handy for holding gifts and some ornaments and Christmas greens.

Now that you have seen my coastal Christmas fireplace, it is time to see what you have to share this week!  Welcome to the party!  I am anxious to see what this last party before Christmas has in store for us!

    1. Thank you Jenna! I found those magnolia garlands at this amazing store called K&K. Unfortunately they don’t sell online except wholesale, but have a huge store I have been lucky enough to get to. Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Love the coastal mantel theme…..I can’t believe how completey different that mantel looks. Love the Magnolia gold and green garland. What is key is that there is garland and the paddle above the mantel so the eye is drawn above the mantel giving a total viewing effect. I love the neutral colors accented with the blue…….beautiful!!!!
