Bring the outdoors in with a rustic country theme. Designer Monica Pedersen highlights the fireplace with a pre-lit evergreen garland that is enhanced with dried magnolia blossoms and magnolia leaves. Hang a large wreath in the center above the hearth, adding a few large pinecones for a festive look. A wicker basket full of attractive wood logs gives the mantel a quaint, homey appearance, while a few wrapped gifts of different sizes placed on either side of the fireplace make it all the more impressive.
