I am pretty excited about getting in the holiday spirit here at my house these days and today I’m partnering with Gordmans to pull together a super cute and wintry holiday mantel at my house! If you’ve never checked out a Gordmans near you… put it on your holiday to-do list! I recently stopped by our local Gordmans store (it’s in Grandville for all you local ladies and it’s HUGE!) and had a blast pulling together some holiday decor for my home. Gordmans mission is to thrill and delight every guest with unique finds and great deals at every turn. There’s no “hunting” for deals at this off-price retailer. The good deals find you… or at least they found me!
As you may know our home has recently gone under a full renovation on our main floor. Last year we had contractors in our house until the week before Christmas and we couldn’t really decorate around their work (brutal!) so this is the first year we actually get to decorate the new house! yay! Our fireplace and mantel is the centerpiece of our family room and since we didn’t have a very big mantel at our old house I was sorely in need of some supplies to decorate it for the holidays.
So off to Gordmans I went! First I snagged a gorgeous faux garland for under $25. They had a great selection of garlands and I love how real this one looks without the mess of needles everywhere. The BELIEVE swag was a must have, I mean, I LOVE some glitter this time of year, and it and white mini trees were all under $13 each if you can even believe it! I picked up a number of these pinecone ornaments for under $3 each – they are SO beautiful in person and since they aren’t glass there is no worries with kids in the house. Then finally I snagged a bright red fleece blanket that was under $8 and a wire basket that was only $12 for all our families’ Christmas books. To set up a cozy reading nook by the fire. In the end the entire looks was a breeze to pull together and I absolutely love how it turned out. Bonus, the grand total was under $100! Please note I was provided with a gift card to purchase the above mentioned products. A big thank you to Gordmans!
