A "rustic charm" look is the perfect way to brighten this room for the holidays. Start by laying a Treetime Pre-lit Brighton garland along the mantle and hang a matching Treetime pre-lit Brighton wreath on the mirror. Add simple burgundy bows for an easy but beautiful touch. Next to the fireplace put a 5-foot pre-lit Treetime Brighton Pine artificial Christmas tree, featuring some long needle pine boughs. Be creative with a container for the tree. We used a metal drum container to complete as part of this rustic charm look.
For a tablescape, use a wooden lantern filled with pine cones, a deer, and one of our favorite easy to use pieces -- a ball ornament garland. We put these ball garlands in tablescapes, on mantles and around trees. It's super easy and versatile.
