How To Turn the Inside of Your Home Into A Dazzling White Christmas

Everyone loves a white Christmas, but the sparkle and beauty doesn’t have to be confined to the outdoors and we don’t have to wait for Mother Nature.

Decorating your home using a white theme can be dazzling and sophisticated.

I like to warm up the winter look with touches of red, but touches of gold also adds just the right amount of warmth to a winter wonderland. Using only white and possibly blue may leave you cold and disappointed.

Let’s start with the Christmas tree.

  • Spray the tree with snow. The amount depends upon your own personal taste. You can give it a light dusting or make it look like a heavy snowfall.
  • Use clear lights. Use a combination of standard steady glowing lights along with twinkling lights.
  • Adorn the tree with clear, white and silver ornaments, snowflakes and glass ornament icicles.

    There are many beautiful Christmas ornaments available that have an elegant frosty look including fruit, berries, birdhouses and even flowers.

    You can use white glittery fern sprays and anything that captures the beauty and sparkle of fresh winter snow.

  • Use garlands or curls of white or sliver ribbon nestled in the tree. A very pale aqua blue ribbon can also be used to emulate the subtle blues of a snowy landscape.
  • Drape the tree with clear beads.
  • Use sprays of red berries throughout the tree to add excitement to the winter theme. There’s nothing more beautiful than red berries peeking through the glistening snow.
  • As a finishing touch, place white doves, red cardinals and any other little birds and perhaps bird nests among the branches. (You might want to check out my unique secret for Christmas tree decorating with birds and beads.)

I checked out one of my favorite sites to find out what they might have to offer that would complement this theme.

Here are some little beauties I think you are going to love:

Thomas Kinkade Holiday Memories Crystal Snowman OrnamentThis precious 4¼ ”, 24% lead crystal snowman really caught my eye for decorating a white Christmas theme. His intense little face with his carrot nose reveals he’s really getting into Christmas caroling. In one hand he holds a book of Christmas carols and in the other hand a candle. On his head he wears a glistening top hat. His mittens and scarf shine with precious silverplate while the diamond and snowflake patterns reflect the colors of the rainbow. On his belly is the artwork of Thomas Kinkade’s beloved “Sunday Evening Sleigh Ride.” What a wonderful little snowman! Thomas Kinkade Holiday Memories Crystal Snowman Ornament

Your White Christmas table decorations will look elegant and classic. Here are some tips and suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.

  • Use a white tablecloth.
  • Decide on a theme. Use one to three decorations to be repeated throughout your table decoration.

    You could use white doves, white and silver flowers and berries, little snowmen, white glittery pinecones, snowflakes, silver bells, angels, etc.

    Differing shades of blue, aqua and purple Christmas ornaments can also be used.

  • Use white or silver candles in candelabras for a formal look or in small candleholders for a less formal look.

    Hurricane lamps can also be used. If hurricane lamps are used, tie white and silver ribbons around the base to dress them up.

    The lamps can also be sprayed with Crystal Frost, which replicates the beautiful look of frost crystals on glass.

  • Use greenery sprayed with snow. The greenery can be placed down the length of the table or it can be made into a candle wreath to be used in the center of the table.

    Decorate the greenery with your theme decorations. Add touches of elegant, white glittery ribbon to complete the look.

    If placed lengthwise down the center of the table, it should be placed around the candles, but beware of fire hazards. Do not let the candles burn too low or come in contact with the greenery or decorations.

I hope these ideas will help you get started in creating your own winter wonderland. You don’t have to dream about a “White Christmas”. You can create your own.

    So I am a high school student and I intend on being something along the lines of an interior decorator, so every year, I decorate my room. Two years ago, my theme was LIGHT, so I put 436 christmas lights up in my room. Yikes, like severe fire hazard, but it looked AWESOME, last year, I did pink, and this year I’m doing a white chirstmas, thanks for the tips, and also try bhg.com, it helped me! xoxxo

    I just loved reading about your decorating ideas, and I plan to use some of them. My grandson is looking forward to helping although he is only 2, I know he will be a huge help. Special Holiday this year with my husband being home after serving overseas and a new grandson as well, things will be perfect
