Berry Glitzy Mantel


Although torn by  the idea of using  natural elements in decorating the mantel, it was screaming for glitz,  shades of red  and berries.  So using things I already owned I went for
Berry Glitzy!


Gold candlesticks  with candles wrapped in beaded garlands and  gold reindeer stand guard,



while berry  bushes and  and  small sugared fruit swags do a death-defying balancing act.



 Intertwined is double-sided velvet/gold ribbon.


 Angels on the hearth.



Complete the picture.


Until next time, Honey
