I have to tell you decorating the mantle is always very hard for me. 
Through out the years, there has been many times when I just gave up and put it back the way it was.

This time around, I decided to make my life easier and just use what I already had at home,  
so I did not spend any money at all and there was no stress involved. :)

 With a little paint and using different flowers from my stash, I was able to make it all come together.
I will show you in some other post how I changed the look of the items I already had.

I also reused the set of jars and the lantern my kids bought for me last year.

And the white pots from Dollar Tree decorated with a garden ball.

As you can see, it is very simple. What do you think?
I also gave the rest of the family room a little update, so I will be sharing those changes with you on my next post.

I hope your week is going well so far and I thank you all for visiting and linking to Tuesdays at Our Home.
See you soon!
