This easy summer mantel styling with florals was so much fun to do. Working with faux flowers and other greenery brought this space to life and added splashes of summer color to our living room. The artwork is also a nod to the floral theme, with the lovely wooden fern print and the “Grow Love At Home” sign. I share three steps on how to easily style your mantel for summer.

Easy Summer Mantel Styling With Florals


Step One: Floral Centerpiece On Mantel

The first thing I did was choose pieces to anchor the mantel design. These pieces included this amazing Spring Greenery Wreath with Berries from JOANN. It is large (26”) and full of floral various floral layers. Below it sits this Spring Wall Decor Green Ferns on White decor piece that I leaned against the wall.


Step Two: Add Florals To The Sides Of The Mantel

I love decor that is symmetrical but has plenty of textures and layers built in. For this mantel, I used vessels I already had on hand (antique crocks) and placed these gorgeous Hydrangea & Bright Pink Rose Bouquet Arrangements inside them. I also mixed in wood with these modern farmhouse Wooden Pillar Candleholder and pillar candles from JOANN.


Styling Tip: Group items in odd numbers! To complete the look, I added the chippy spindles I had on hand to the floral crocks and candle pillars. Also, create a triangle shape at the base of the grouping for it to be the most appealing to the eye.

Along the length of the mantel, I also added a garland. This JOANN garland here is lovely and features peonies! It was the icing on the cake to the mantel.


Step Three: Add Decor Around The Fireplace Hearth

For the summer months, you do not want to add heavy fabrics; a lighter look is better for this time of year. When I first saw this JOANN Woven 17″ Round Basket Textured Diamond, I knew it was going to make its way into our home. It is a large, budget-friendly option and the perfect look for summer months. I simply added a lightweight pillow I had on hand and it was done!


Bonus Points: Carry The Florals Around The Room

This space adjoins to our mantel and fireplace area, so I couldn’t help but add more of these gorgeous bouquets in an oversized crock on top of this chippy table. I love how bright they made this little space here.


Styling Tip: If your floral stems are too short for a large vessel like this oversized crock, simply use recycled plastic bags or packing paper to fill in the bottom of the vessel until it fills in the space needed to create the perfect height.


And, a floral theme can also come in the form of words! This “Grow Love At Home” wall decor is the perfect example. I am in love with this farmhouse style sign. It layered perfectly on top of the mirror and has a clean, modern feel with it’s black and white + natural wood colors.


I hope these three steps gave you the confidence to style your own mantel for summer with florals! They are sure to add happiness to your home.
