My Substitute Mantle

I decorated my newly finished buffet for the Magazine Copy Cat Christmas Challenge. I liked it a lot but it wasn't exactly what I wanted for the season...so I did  another arrangement. I made two arrangements using clippings of boxwood and pine from my yard mixed with some faux greenery. I added twigs also from the yard and added pine cones and silver balls. I made a candle scape on a silver tray in the center. The arrangement anchors my giant wreath lol. I'm giving you a tiny peek of my buffet, but not to much because I'll be revealing it later.  Here are some shots of my new arrangement on my buffet aka my substitute mantle.
