I wasn't sure what I was going to do on my mantel this year for Christmas. I was strolling through Pottery Barn and saw these trees with the lights and then ideas came to me and a scene that you might see in the woods, sans the lighted trees, was created.
I used a blanket of snow across the mantel and then placed the trees at each end. I love these trees because the lights have battery packs that run the lights with timers and I just tucked those under the snow.
I knew I wanted to place some deer on the mantel and went in search of ones the correct size. I found both of these at an antique mall.
I love how life like this one looks and wish there had been a buck like this.
I already had the bottle brush trees.
I added two little cute bears at each end of the mantel.
I added bits of snow on top of the burlap bases of the trees.
This vintage Belgian bulb basket that I bought last year from Dreamy Whites holds a thick faux fur throw to grab on a chilly evening. This is Mr. Savvy's favorite throw.
I wanted birch logs in the fireplace this year to go along with the woodland theme and since we don't have birch trees I ordered these from an etsy shop and they came very quickly.
After I was finished shooting pics for this post I decided to add these lights to the logs. Do y'all keep tweaking things after you finished like I do?
Linen and ticking Christmas stockings by Ann hang with a snowy branch tucked in.
