HOW TO HANG YOUR STOCKING WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A FIREPLACE?
We are well and truly getting into the spirit of Christmas around here although I am a bit late to the party when it comes to putting up our Christmas decs. This year will the first time we have stockings in our house, something I haven’t had since I was kid. I am going to go totally traditional and hang ours above the fireplace but what can you do with yours if you don’t have a mantle? We invited Marina from The Roc Shop to share her advice on styling your Christmas stocking.
“Stockings serve as holiday decor hanging on the mantle for an entire month patiently waiting to be filled on Christmas Eve. Why not make them as beautiful as possible and hype up the anticipation of presents to come? Whether your style is classic, modern or even your well-loved childhood stocking that’s been used since you were a babe, we’ve got ideas to style and fill them all this year! First, where to hang and display your cherished oversized sock? If you’re lucky to have a fireplace, the mantle is the good ol’ classic that never fails. There’s something so magical about stockings over the fire that give us that warm and cozy feeling. But if you’re like most of us in Southern California, we don’t have a lot of fireplaces around, so hanging them on a wall or off the side of a table works great too! Be creative with the space and don’t be afraid to embellish them to really make them stand out.
Once they’re hanging in all their Christmas glory, don’t leave them looking sad and empty! Have fun sprucing them up by adding a garland, lights, and even ornaments to jazz things up. Adding touches of greenery really helps your stocking pop.”
