Mantelscaping has become quite the holiday sport. We're always on the hunt for new ways of gussying up our beloved hearths and this year it's all about classic made simple. With a few key pieces from Pier 1 Imports, we turned our mantel into a holiday show-stopper. And a sparkling one at that. It's the kind of spot where you'll find guests and family cozying up with a cup of cocoa and Bing Crosby on repeat.
To get this wintery look we rested a large mirror horizontally to give height to the mantel then surrounded the base with a lush garland made of greens. Garlands are a holiday staple. They're classic as can be and really add a layer of gorgeous greenery to a mantel, a staircase, or a chair even.

From there, we wove in an assortment of candleholders from beautiful wood to sparkling mercury glass + candles. And last but not least, we hung our stockings. These knitted, fur beauties from Pier 1 Imports might just be our most favorite to date.
Whether you have a working fireplace or not, a pretty way to spruce it up is to place lanterns with candles inside. The flickering of candlelight can be just as romantic as a fire. Another great tip is to create your own little "trees" by placing branches of evergreen, pine or spruce in a vessel. You could even add a couple of ornaments!

Let your mantel become the place to be this holiday with our favorite pieces from Pier 1 Imports. A mirror, loads of candles and greenery and you'll be well on your way to sipping that cocoa and listening to your favorite holiday tunes.
