Pick a Color
Think simple by picking one or two colors as a focal or pop color for your romantic fireplace mantel. Use colored glass vases and bowls help build the color scheme. You can use real or faux flowers to bring in another texture of your pop color. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your focal color choice like using a bright or hot pink, red, or even green.

Make it Personal
Think about incorporating memories into your fireplace display. Beautifully framed pictures, inspirational words, or even mementoes from a favorite trip can help set the tone for a night full of romance.
