Garlands are your best friend when it comes to filling a Christmas mantelpiece in a flash. No matter how large your mantel is, you can easily work a garland to be personal to you. They can be arranged in minutes and combined with some clever Christmas candles are the safest bet this season. Most artificial garlands tend to have dense tips which are ideal for weaving Christmas lights through. For continuity of your room, keep your garland theme in line with your existing decor. For that nostalgic traditional feel, a hint of red berries is a must.

In contrast to artificial garlands, layering foliage with Christmas fairy lights on your mantel takes a little longer but gives you the magazine style. Think of your mantelpiece like a city skyline. Height and variety, teamed with a simple colour scheme is our little formula to get the magazine look at home. You don’t have to stick to traditional holly & berries, choosing a few simple decorations that fit with your colour palette can subtly tie in your festive style with your existing room decor. Plan your design. We love this soft sage and pale blues with an accent of a bold metallic is so effective and easily recreated to give you this look.
