How to properly use a mantel scarf

Some people think you thumbtack them to the front of the mantle, well, that is a definite “NO, NO“. It will be hard to remove in case of an emergency.  You actually lay it on top of the mantle shelf, and gently slide it towards the back, next to the wall, and it should hang down over the front of the mantle no more than 9”. You can have a drop on each end of it, or none at all, it depends on your liking. As shown in the picture below, some people will cover it end to end with a drop on each end.

A Designer's Dream of Decorating with Butterflies on the Table

    A Designer's Dream of Decorating with Butterflies on the Table We're convinced that a table, no matter how elegant, our Butterfly Linens will refresh your decor with color and give it a glow of Spring or Summer.  When the Butterflies come out each year, we want to see the colors and the grace with which they display their wings.  I am convinced that our Butterfly Doilies and Runners are the most beautiful linens we offer to decorate a room and bring out the beauty of the room. The scroll and cutwork will add beautiful dimensions to each piece and add beauty to any table, dresser, or buffet. A Doily placed in the center of a table is a wonderful addition to show off a beautiful centerpiece or floral arrangement.

Either piece will add beauty to any table.  The small Butterfly Runner is designed to sit on a coff
