Hi everyone! It’s been a long time since we’ve had a mantel party at my place, and I thought it would be fun to have an impromptu get together! My summer mantel is very neutral and beachy this year.
I found the little seagull yesterday at a store called the Christmas Tree Shop and knew he’d make a great addition to the vignette. I placed some broken willow sticks in a vase to add some height and texture and some shells and driftwood to contribute to the beachy vibe.
The gorgeous mirror was a recent score on Joss & Main!! Don’t you love Joss & Main sales? (You have to have an invite to access Joss & Main so if you need one, here you go. Although, as I’m writing this post they appear to be having some site issues. If you purchase something using that link, I receive credit so by all means feel free to buy something *wink*.) My mirror was originally priced at $274. Joss & Main had it priced at $84 but with a 25% off Memorial Day sale, I was able to snag it for $63. It is metal, and huge, and glorious, and exactly what I wanted!
The little sailboat was looking a bit too coppery in comparison to the mirror, so I smudged it up with some Rub ‘n Buff. The other beachy accessories were borrowed from other rooms in the house.
And one more full shot for you before you share with me your mantel!
