One Mantle 3 ways

The four blue mirrors are actually square serving bowls with mirrors attached inside.
Add height with stacks of books.

Here are 5 rectangular white platters hung with easels. They are accented with sprigs of
fern from the garden and starfish from the beach. Seashells and moss balls round give added texture.

Surround a white berry wreath with 8 white plates for a different look above the fireplace instead
of the usual picture or mirror. Fill hurricanes with green granny smith apples..faux of course!
