Easy Ways to Spruce up Your Mantel for Summer
Come along as I take my mantel decor from Spring to Summer!
“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.” —L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island
Anne Shirley Knows Everything
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been thinking along the same lines as Anne Shirley of late, wondering what it would be like to always be June. I’m ready for summer to arrive with it’s long, lazy, sultry days. I long for mornings with nowhere, in particular, to get to, and late dinners on the porch, listening to the cicadas chirp. I’m eager to sample fruity, dripping popsicles, to visit county fairs, and enjoy days swimming at the lake, basking in the sun.

It’s not time yet
We have a few more weeks before we get to June – it’s a busy time filled with more activities than I can count. I know it’s still May, and I see the date on the calendar, but try as I might keep my head in the here and now, my mind is firmly in June. The one bright spot to this? It may still technically be spring for a few more weeks, but that doesn’t mean my mantel has to say “spring”!
Lucky me, I’m teaming up with several of my blogging friends to bring you our Summer Mantel Decor. Lucky you, you’ll get oodles and oodles of mantel inspiration! Let’s get started.
I kept things super simple, adding pops of color and some of my favorite things.
In all truthfulness, I wouldn’t love an endless summer vacation – there will come a day in the next few months when I will be yearning for boots and sweaters. But that day isn’t today. Today, I’m with Anne.
“All in all, it was a never to be forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.” —L.M. Montgomery, Anne’s House of Dreams
I’m looking forward to a fabulous memory- making summer! In the meantime, be sure to visit my friends for more inspiration!
