Simple ideas for decorating the mantel during Summer!
Summer Mantel Ideas!
Good Morning friends (or evening, afternoon… depending on when you read this, lol)! I am going to share how I got our mantel “ready” for summer. But I really wanted to practice what I preach and keep it simple/budget friendly too! At first when thinking about this post, I thought I was going to need to create something with art or go buy new accessories. But then, I stopped and reminded myself that all that wasn’t necessary to make something beautiful. I could shop the house and recycle what I had here. So I did just that and hope it encourages you that you can make a beautiful home without the latest and greatest!
I am joining my sweet friends including Krista from The Happy Housie to share these ideas, so make sure to visit all of them at the end!
In the summer, I like decor to feel free and decluttered! I want things to be fresh and bright. So of course I stuck to a monochromatic theme here ;)…
I kept the umbrella tree in the corner and love how plants pop against bright white walls!
I flanked the fireplace both with the plant and then a large basket. The basket pulls in texture and grounds the space a bit!
Then it came time to decorate the mantel itself.
I grabbed this little vine I had in the kitchen and used it alongside my mirror. You don’t need the mirror, I just always like to keep this one centered here.
Then I ran to the garage and found all the smaller white vases I could find to line the ledge.
Super easy and affordable! Even if you don’t have stuff like this at home, you could thrift for under $20 easy!

I love the whole look and your adorable pooch! Thanks for sharing. Definitely shopping your house first is a great idea.

Cute and classic! I love shopping my house. Simple is better these days! (Love your blog! I’ve been following for years!)
Love it all – the plants, the texture, the layers of white. Totally believe in decorating simply and affordably. Each year I’m drawn to keep it more simple. LOVE it. Happy Summer!
