While we always think of red and green for Christmas, there is no reason why it has to be so or why we can’t introduce other colors. And besides, blue and white porcelain— goes with everything! So here are some inspiration images for decorating with blue and white porcelain for the holidays.

This is a good time to point out something that y’all might have wondered about. How do you know if a vase or whatever will fit on the mantel? Oh, it never crossed your mind? Well, it might if your mantel isn’t very deep. However, take heart. If your mantel is say only 6″ deep, you can still get away with something that’s deeper. Here’s how to know if it’ll fit.

You only need to have the bottom sitting on the mantel. Therefore measure the diameter of the base. Let’s say it’s 4″. Then, draw a plumb line down from the widest part of the base to wherever it’s sitting. Make a little mark on a piece of paper sitting under the vase. If the amount is two inches or less between the mark from the plumb line and the beginning of the base, then it’ll fit. In other words, you could have a vase or jar that’s 8″ in diameter and it’ll be okay to sit on the fireplace mantel that’s only 6″. Therefore, you should be in great shape if you win the vases, if your mantel is only 6.5″ or larger.
