Blue Christmas Blog Hop: Mantles

Welcome back to the Blue Christmas Blog Hop!!!
There are 7 of us contributing to this fun Series!
I am LOVING seeing what these creative ladies post every is so much fun to see their style and ideas and think of how I can change things up in easy and inexpensive ways. 

Over the last 2 weeks we've shown  you our ideas for Blue Ornaments and Blue Wreaths and Blue Wall Decor.

This week it's all about sharing our ideas for adding blue to your Mantle or Tablescapes for a fresh spin on your Christmas Decor!

I mentioned last week that I don't really have a lot of blue decorations. But I love the blue look at Christmas. I have a lot of blue in my home, so this was an easy transition to start incorporating touches of blue to things I already have.
I wanted to keep my mantle rustic to transition through Thanksgiving and then into Christmas...but I loved adding a touch of BLUE!
So I added a bit of silvery blue ribbon to the mantle and an old window frame that I painted a powdery blue and added vinyl lyrics to...because, well, it's cold outside!

I think it is natural to WANT to go and buy new things each season...that's what the big stores really want all of us to do, so that's why they push the trends and design styles in different ways each season. But if you have a few basic sort of staple pieces you can change them up each year by just adding different ribbon or changing out small touches here and there.

Thanks for coming over! 
Be sure to visit all of my co-hosts blogs for more inspiration 
and be sure to hop back over next Friday December 6th for Trees!
