Traditional look never goes out of style

I really want to update that fireplace! That's a 2020 project for me and would be sweet timing if I could win this contest instead ;)

Set a festive mood for holiday celebrating. Start with the Wexford Collection. Place the Treetime 7½-foot Wexford artificial Christmas tree, a natural looking tree with the most realistic needles and a layered edge perfect for decorating, by the window.

For the fireplace, add the Treetime Wexford wreath and garland. Decorate all the greenery with a traditional theme by mixing plaid ribbon, red berries, gold ornaments and pine cones.

Finally, create a tablescape with a nutcracker advent calendar, trendy "orbs" of greenery and black candlesticks, most of which can be used year-round, to complete the look.
