Dining Hutch ~ My Alternative Mantel

Unfortunately I do not have a festive holiday mantel to share with you all.I know everyone is partying with mantels this week:(But I do have this hutch in my dining room that I freshen up for the holidays.

~ Naturally cottage chic if I do say so myself ~

On the top I added a pop of red with these festive poinsettias.Tip ~ Instead of buying one large poinsetta that could cost $25-$50I purchased 2 smaller ones that were $5 each they filled in my galvanized bucket perfectly.

I always try to coordinate my dining hutch with my dining table decor.You can see more of my dining room for the holidays here and here.I used fresh greens on the hutch and on my dining table to pull the look together in the room.

 I thought these greenery sprigs were organically fresh & simple.

Here I used some artificial berry filler with greenery sprigs.I also used arificial snow filler and added just a single pinecone to finish the container.

I really love to mix natural elements in all of my decor for any season.I think that is my favorite part of my holiday decor this year.You will see fresh simple natural elements with pops of red in nearly every room.For me it is important to make sure that the overall vibeof my home has a cohesive feel from room to room both at the Holidays and everyday.
