Decorate with an extra-long garland
 

Hang From the Rafters

Go ahead, get that super-long pine garland and hang it from the ceiling so it drapes all the way to the floor.


Use ceramic cups to display holiday greens
 

Cup of Green Tea

Take a fresh approach to your holiday decorations. For a simply classic look, fill white ceramics with small evergreens, culinary herbs, or Christmas tree trimmings.


Use layers of holiday decorations
 

Fresh Pine

Layer different types of green garland to create contrast in colors and style. Then accent your mantel with pinecones, feathers, and berries.


Use your early bloomers
 

Paperwhite Display

Take advantage of fragrant spring bulbs and use them to create a unique mantel masterpiece.


Add some tropical elements
 

Christmas in the Tropics

Don't be limited by evergreens for your mantel; use what is native to your region. Palm fronds can add an exotic, tropical feel.


Use your fireplace
 

Fireplace Ambience

If you're not using your fireplace for an actual fire, use it to enhance your holiday motif. An old chest or dresser can be used in front of the fireplace to display candles.
