The holiday season is upon us and I’ve been busy decking my halls. Today, I’m inviting you into my family room to share my magical and cozy fireplace Christmas decorations.
Magical and Cozy Fireplace Christmas Decorations:
I’m also joined today by my Seasons of Home blogger friends.We’ve all created a magical candlelight inspired space in our holiday homes and we’re thrilled to be sharing it with all of you. I’ve linked it to everyone at the end of this post. If you’re starting to decorate too and need a little magical candlelit inspiration, be sure to check out everyone’s posts.
As many of you requested, I’ve been trying to share some behind-the-scenes Christmas decorating progress on my Instagram account (You can follow me HERE if you want a look at my process too.), so this mantel might look familiar.
Ideas for Fireplace Christmas Decorations:
If you’ve been following me the past couple of years, you’ll know that I’ve been doing a red-inspired theme for my family room. I thought about switching it up this year, but I really love how the red works in here so I went for it again. Even though I stick with the same color scheme each year, I do try to switch up the decor.
This year I didn’t have a specific theme in mind. However, when one of my favorite artists, Lindsay Letters, launched her 2020 Holiday Collection, inspiration struck! I was immediately drawn to this pair of art prints that she had available. They feature a quote from one of my favorite Christmas songs. Printed in red, I knew they would be such a stunning start for my fireplace Christmas decorations.
Hanging these on the brick was a little tricky. At the moment, they are hung with these Command Picture Hanging Strips. Each one has five of the large strips. I’m not fully confident that they will hold, but I’m hoping for the best. (I originally had them hung with just three of the large strips and one fell during the night.)
Sidenote: If you’re just hanging these on the wall, they come with the most genius and easy-to-hang system – I love it! Lindsay really thought of everything.
With my artwork in place, I began to add the rest of my decor. As you might know, I’m a big fan of Balsam Hill. I LOVE their trees and the rest of their holiday decor. When I saw this Red Berry Frosted Fraser Fir Garland, I knew it would be perfect for my mantel.
To make it even more magical, I added a string of these White Cherry Light String. Unfortunately you can’t see it in these images, but the lights can be set to a twinkle mode – absolutely beautiful. (I’ll share a video on my Instagram feed if you want to check them out.)
Because I can’t leave well enough alone, I decided to amp up the garland with this Candy Cane Stripe Ribbon and a few of these Felt and Wood Vintage Beaded Garland. I’m using the same ribbon and garland on the tree that will be in this room, so I think it will tie everything together beautifully!
To finish things off, I hung some of these Nordic Christmas Stockings on either side of the fireplace. I adore the design and real stitching details on these. They are so high-quality.
