I know many people struggle with decorating their mantel. My advice? Keep that mantel simple (except during the holidays, when you can do it UP).
This timeless tip requires 3 key items; single stems of seasonal flowers, bud vases and framed photos. "Timeless" means you don't have to change it out often, which is a huge plus in my book. Change the flowers when they fade and go on with your day!
Last week's flowers were tulips. When I buy flowers, I always get a couple extra to use on the mantel. The short glass bowls had candles in them yesterday (Easter), so today I put polished river rocks in them, but they'll get put away soon. The tulips and framed photos are enough. Keep It Simple!
This week I stumbled upon these faux tulips. Faux makes it even easier!

Update - now it's March of 2018, two years after writing this post. Guess what's on my mantel right now? Take a look:
I'm certainly consistent! The framed photographs haven't been put back up yet, but they will be soon enough.
