For my summer mantel this year I did something new.

I assured him that it would be just fine!

It is so nice to have a little color & interest inside our living room firebox.

Add Color with Ferns

Ferns are my greenery of choice these days. 

They are easy to grow and can be found in abundance at our home in the summertime.

Ferns also do a fantastic job adding color to the big black box under your fireplace mantel.

If you don’t have ferns in your yard or another type of shady perennial you can always find them inexpensively at your local grocery store or nursery. 

I actually dug the fern plant out of our garden just so I could put it inside the fireplace.
