Veteran's Day Mantel

This Thursday is Veteran's Day.  So to celebrate, I transformed our mantel for this week.  Who says you can't combine decorating ideas - Veteran's Day with a Thanksgiving twist!!


Mom had this great flag ribbon so after I took down the Halloween elements I was left with the raffia pumpkins, leaf garland and pine cones.  Then I added the ribbon and my Uncle Sam candle holder.






Happy Veteran's Day to all our veterans and those brave men and woman serving in our armed forces!!  Thank you!
