The 25th of December is almost upon us, so we here at Lonny thought it'd be fun to show our readers how we celebrate—and decorate for—the holidays. Today, we're continuing our holiday decor tour with a trip to my Williamsburg, Brooklyn apartment, where I decked out my white mantel in mint green and metallics.

To get the look, I started with a white garland from Treetopia and a trip to the flower district in NYC, but it all came together when I channeled my love of all-things Confetti System into the details.
Inexpensive mint-green balls (you can get a set of 45 for $20 at B & J Florist Supply Company in New York City), gold cord, and a deep teal ribbon served as the base, and then I added fringed tissue-paper clusters done in mint green and gold mylar to fill out the garland. The finishing touch: fresh Ilex winterberry branches from the farmer's market—to add some color—and these super-cool faceted ornaments from Jayson Home.
And just because I wanted to incorporate my new Nate Berkus vases into the mix, I wrapped branches—found on the streets of Brooklyn, but don't tell my neighbors!—in gold and mint green MT masking tape and finished them with more tissue paper fringe.
How are you decorating for the holidays?
