Decorating your mantel – Christmas edition!

It’s that time of year!!! It’s here friends! We can finally drag out the garland, taper candles, and Christmas villages to decorate our farmhouse mantels without too many people rolling their eyes at us! At my farmhouse, we have several fireplaces to decorate and I try to make each one unique.  The picture above is the fireplace in my dining room. I knew I wanted my mantel to have a farmhouse christmas vibe and my colors to be neutral to balance off my exposed wood ceiling, which can feel really dark at times. So I went with white, gold, green, and black (to tie in my fireplace). I put up my buffalo check plates which are very farmhouse and some black taper candleholders that add height to balance off my large gold mirror. I also added green garland and some pinecones for some natural elements. But it was missing something…



Farmhouse christmas Village

I don’t know about you… but I’ve been contemplating putting up a Christmas village this year. I’ve gone back and forth searching for the right sizes and colors to fit into my farmhouse decor. They all seem to be too large and not quite the picture I had in my head. That is until I found UsYoungs white village with fairy lights!  They’re so cute and rustic… and the perfect size!!! They’re made of natural wood and each set is cut and unfinished to bring out the natural beauty in the wood! There’s a variety of stains or white painted houses or trees to choose from. The set includes 7 ft, battery-powered LED wire strung fairy lights… and get this…they’re available in a 5 piece and 3 piece set! They’re also Handcrafted… which I absolutely Love!!! As soon as I saw them I knew I had to have them to complete my Christmas mantel! And as a bonus… They are SO affordable! I got several sets! One of my favorite parts is that these cute little houses will trasition well out of christmas and stay up on my mantel as a part of my farmhouse decor! They’re very vercitle!



shiny and bright!

I also LOVE that this wooden village set from Usyoungs comes with fairy lights! The funny thing is that I just recently bought a set of fairy lights on Amazon… for $12! Which was MORE expensive than one of these village sets that includes the fairly lights!! I can’t stress enough how affordable these sets are!
