Give me a mantle and I will show you hundreds of ways to decorate for holidays, special events, birthdays, even the start of a new school year.

I love to decorate our little home, known as our cottage, but my favorite space is the mantle. In fact, I think it may have been the mantle that made me fall in love with our house in the first place. Every month, I decorate it either for a holiday, someone’s birthday, a special anniversary, or any occasion that needs celebrating.

This month it’s all about our dads, step-dads, grampas, great-grampas, uncles, and our children who are now grown and who have become dads themselves. We have been blessed with so many strong, intelligent, and caring men in our lives.

I hope you like this month’s mantle and, if you want, you can check out my past mantles with the link below. How do you celebrate Father's Day? What are some of your favorite family photos? I’d love to see them. Happy Father's Day to all of the great dads in the Hudson Valley.
