Welcome to the fourth week of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Series! Today a group of my blogging friends and I are sharing our Holiday Mantels and a few vignette decorating ideas, to help inspire you for the upcoming holidays. A special thanks to our friend Krista at The Happy Housie who organizes it all and hosts this amazing series! Today I’m sharing my glam white and gold living room Christmas tree and mantel!
Glam White & Gold Christmas Living Room
Glam White & Gold Christmas Tree Ornaments & Ribbon
This pearl ornament was from a local boutique. I had to have it! They only had one that I saw. Striped ornaments are from HomeGoods. I have purchased most of my ornaments there or at Macy’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or local boutiques over the years. At the end of the post I’ll have a bunch linked for you!
Velvet poinsettias from HomeGoods a few years ago. The lovely bow ornament was a DIY Glam Rhinestone Bow Ornament tutorial I shared on the blog last week. When I too these pics, I didn’t quite have all the ornaments done yet and now I do and they are so cute all on my tree!
Isn’t this the most gorgeous ribbon?! It’s white velvet wired ribbon with rhinestone edging and gold backing. I’m selling it in my online boutique for all of you. It’s very expensive and a high-end boutique ribbon but it comes on a 5-yard roll.
That cute dome house was from Target a few years back. I just love it. And, of course, all of my cute white and gold boxes and wrapping paper are from Target and I just grab gold-toned ribbon and tie big bows on them, adding some little stems here or there. Wanna know a secret about my tree skirt? It’s no skirt at all! Just a bunch of faux fur pieces of fabric and an old cut up rug bunched together. It gives more dimension and is bigger that way!
My thick garland I’ve had for years burnt out on me and I was soooo sad BUT it was actually a blessing in disguise because it was so thick that I couldn’t fit all these glass trees on my mantel like I wanted to.
Instead I purchased this inexpensive garland and added a strand of extra lights and then stuffed it with everything pretty until it looked how I wanted it to.
The gold star garland came from Walmart, the crystal garland I already had from an old chandelier that I linked all together (but linked the same thing for you below at end of post), gold stems, velvet poinsettias from Hobby Lobby, gold eucalyptus from Pier1, and the little crystal drops were from Hobby Lobby too.
The stockings have been with us for years now and I added fur trim and hot-glued it across the top (from Hobby Lobby). Can I vent for a minute? Our closest Hobby Lobby is 45+ min away and it’s the first time we’ve lived somewhere where it hasn’t been around the corner. Ugh. But they’re finally putting one in here in Vancouver. Yay! Ok…back to the post.
While all my other glass trees in my entry came from Pottery Barn, these ones and the beaded and wooden ones all came from…..you guessed it….HomeGoods! They had an entire aisle of trees this year. It was awesome! I turned down it and thought, “These are all coming home with me and going on my mantel!” Ha! And there is how I got the idea for my mantel. Just a mini way-condensed version lol!
Glam White & Gold Christmas Coffee Table
I love a pedestal bowl with sparkly ornaments. This one is from ZGallerie last year.
This is actually soooo much more simple than any other Christmas coffee table I’ve ever done but I’m liking it! Simple but sparkly and glamorous!
When I was a teenager, I performed in a youth group and one of my favorite Christmas songs was the Hallelujah chorus. It gave me chills every time!
“King of kings, and Lord of lords…”
“…forever, and ever, …Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Hallelujah!!!!!”
Oh gosh, I want to go turn it on right now. So, that is what inspired me this Christmas for the downstairs decor here. I wanted to continue with the white and gold like I’d been doing during the fall but add crowns to my decor and make it feel royal and special and white and bright. You’ll see more crowns later in my other spaces.
I added a gold velvet lumbar from HomeGoods to add more of that golden warmth to my sofa. Just what it needed.
Check back soon for my dining space and kitchen!!!
