a quick update to the living room mantel for the upcoming 4th of july holiday.
remember the early summer mantel I shared here?
i swapped out the sea fan & conch for a patriotic enamel tray and a galvanized watering can decorated with american flags respectively.
keeping the same composition and design on the mantel made it super easy to update.
i did change out the candelabras with my small lanterns; i thought they had a better americana vibe.
i added other patriotic details like the liberty metal ribbon and an old baseball from master masterpieces.
the vintage bunting i picked up a few months ago from a local craft store that was closing down...i wish i had gotten more.
i also tucked in a mini flag into the cast iron planter as well as an old folded flag between the books and lantern.
happy independence day!
