Decorating the Mantel for Mother’s Day
Using a typical winter piece like an evergreen wreath, and Balsam Hill’s Candela Crossbar Traditional Lantern, Adrianne and her mother decorated the fireplace mantel to keep up with the season. With a few accents like eggs, nest, butterfly, ribbons and star string lights, the mother-daughter tandem was able to create a simple and lovely spring-inspired mantel decor for Mother’s Day.
