Bright, vivid colors, set the stage for merry and fun.

Plus, knowing where to order the best in holiday decor to create a Feliz Navidad mantel for the holiday’s matters!

Feliz Navidad Mantel DIY
The same old, same old is boring!
That’s who I am and therefore I change things up.
Tradition is what I love and that is celebrating the holidays as a family and decorating as a family.
I love that!
While Christmas colors are brilliant, Felize Navidad’s decor is even more eye-catching!
Feliz Navidad Mantel: Holiday Piñatas (1)
It all started when I hopped onto Oriental Trading Company’s website and fell in love with the Donkey PIÑATAS.
These were just begging to be placed on the mantel.
I love those gold antlers and well I did load them with candy to hang and break at each of our gatherings.
Festive Felize Navidad Mantel: Big has to be balanced! (2)
Naturally, I loved the big piñatas so I wanted to create a color pop and I sought out the smaller donkeys.
Plus the smaller Alpacas are great take-aways for anyone visiting!
Because I could not resist these plush Christmas Alpaca and they fit the theme so well.
Plus I added sombreros atop the cactus margarita glasses (more on these below).
Feliz Navidad Mantel: What’s a Party Without A Sombrero? (3)
Once I found these little tabletop sombreros, while looking at the other decor offerings, I was like, ‘gotta have them!’
I used them to decorate the top of each piñata, as well as the trees too.
Really I can reuse these on Cinco De Mayo, which we celebrate BIG!
Feliz Navidad & The Elves (4)
What I know about elves, is they can’t resist a good fiesta and while Santa is busy unloading the sleigh, they help and create chaos!
Margaritas Put The Feliz in the Feliz Navidad Mantel, LOL! (5)
In any event, I used long-arm plush elves that connect with velcro hands to hang the stockings.
Additionally, the large long arm elf, kind of helped himself to the Margaritas as did two of his little friends.
As a result, one is sitting atop the Cactus Margarita Glasses (plastic) loaded with festive Faith Buttermints.
Festive Feliz Navidad Mantel Pillows + A Dispenser (6)
In consequence of nipping at margaritas in the Cactus Margarita dispenser, the other elf is passed out cold on the Fiesta Tassel pillow.
Funny thing, he brought his tabletop-sized sombrero along but forgot to cover his head. LOL!
Did you see behind the margarita cactus dispenser there is a line of poinsettia garland?
I did that to add a pop of color along the bottom.
Decoration Ideas For Festive Feliz Navidad: Serape Runner, Blanket, and Flowers (7)
Speaking of ‘pops’ of color, don’t forget to add-in a woven serape table runner, and some simple to craft Fiesta Tissue Paper Flowers.
The tissue paper flowers come flat, and you have to separate the layers and crinkle.
Each took about 3 minutes to create.
In any event, they added more color splashes throughout, so that is why I used them.
Again, for more color, I chose the fiesta serape throw, and that’s a great LIGHT blanket.
It’s very colorful and will be a piece of our home year-round.
What’s A Mantel Without Stockings?
Because no mantel would be complete without stockings, I chose these adorable plastic stockings.
To complete my Feliz Navidad Mantel, I strung 2 different garlands across the fireplace: a cactus garland and a Feliz Navidad banner.
I was able to maneuver the letters where they needed to be to center on my fireplace which was perfect!
