DRAPE THE FIRE­PLACE

Southern Living (USA) - - Home & Garden -

Why hide a beau­ti­ful man­tel with miles of heavy red rib­bon and thick green­ery? Cre­ate a sim­ple yet strik­ing look with thin green­ery and light col­ors (in­spired by in­sea­son pears). Cas­cade a sin­gle gar­land, like Ley­land cy­press, asym­met­ri­cally across the man­tel. Then, em­bel­lish it with a pale pink wired rib­bon (we used about 10 yards). Next, at­tach sprigs of fresh mag­no­lia clip­pings with wire to sharpen the sil­hou­ette. Fin­ish by plac­ing pears and can­dle­sticks with tall pink ta­pers along the top of the man­tel.
