After a bit of a hiatus, we’re back to the Dimplex blog, and we’re deep into our busiest (but most exciting) season of the year! I’m brand new to this company and to this blog but I’m looking forward to exploring some great topics in the coming months.
My mantel at home is currently empty (save for some pesky unattended dust), so I wanted to explore some ways to display our stockings this year, and not breaking the bank to do it! Here are a few tried and tested ways to make the most of your mantel this year.
Display Holiday Cards
In my household, we’re fortunate to have wonderful friends and family who take the time to send cards each year, and I always try to find new ways to showcase them. The mantel works great because it’s already a focal point in your house.
Memories of Christmases Past
Pictures, presents, and other sentimental items can be displayed on your mantel alongside your stockings. What better way to look back at Christmases past than to bring your mantel to life with the memories!
Use greenery to fill up blank spaces on your mantel, and bring depth and beauty to your space. Whether it’s fresh or fake, the green stuff will contrast well with your stockings and other decorations.
There’s nothing wrong with a little sparkle around the holidays! Adding lights to your mantel will brighten up the space and focus further attention to the work of art you created.
