Christmas may officially be December 25th, but the Christmas season starts once all of the decorations are in place. But decorating is so much more than just hanging stockings and putting ornaments on a tree; the real decorating is in the details. This past Christmas, ProFlowers reached out to some of our favorite interior design bloggers to help inspire a blog post on festive mantelpiece decor utilizing some of our Christmas flower bouquets. Here is how our talented friends brought the Christmas spirit to every part of their home:

Cindy at DIY Beautify turned her mantel into a festive Christmas masterpiece by layering candles, small Christmas trees, burlap stars, and a garland. Then she used her white tulips as a beautiful contrast to the cedar branches she picked from her own yard. You can see all the layers of her beautiful mantel here.

Susie Harris of her self-titled blog initially couldn’t decide where her flowers fit best since she liked them in so many places, but eventually she decided they fit best on her mantel. She said she used her flowers as a reminder to slow down during the Christmas season and enjoy the beauty around her. You can see her beautiful work here.
