Ever since I took down our Easter decor, I’ve been completely stuck on how to decorate our mantel. And it’s been pretty vacant for the past couple months, save for the white lantern full of potpourri. I decided last week that this needed to change. I was tired of looking at nothing, plus, we were hosting a dinner party over the weekend. And I couldn’t have a naked mantel in front of our guests!
So I turned to trusty Pinterest for inspiration… and found mostly beach-inspired decor. I like the beach. I like walks on the beach and seaside-inspired beverages. But… we’re not beach decor people. I know a lot of people are, and I always admire the calm, casual feel it puts out. But, it’s just not our style.
Which begs the question… what’s a girl gotta do to get a summery mantel up in here?
Answer… go to Pier 1!
Where one will find oodles of options. Like hydrangeas and more lanterns.
And lemons. Not sure if we’re fake-fruit people, either… but we got ’em!
What does your summer mantel look like? Are you a beach decor person? Or a fake-fruit decor person? Or something else entirely?
