So, When Do You Start Dressing Up Your Mantle for Christmas?

Home Stager with Kates Home Staging and Interior Design Owner & Lead Designer

Well, Thanksgiving is only a few days away and in my house that means we start digging out all our Christmas decorations this Friday.

One of my favorite things to decorate is the mantle over the fireplace.  From stocking to candles to pinecones, there are really limitless ways we all can decorate.

Here are some mantle photos to get you inspired:

Velvet Stocking | Pottery Barn

Fair Isle Knit Stocking | Pottery Barn



I am looking forward to staying home this Friday and starting to decorate for the Holidays. If you ask my teenage son and husband, they may not 100% agree :-)

So, when do you start decorating for Christmas? 

Happy Holidays.
