“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” are the lyrics of the famous song that inspired me to write this article. So, here are a few ideas for creating white Christmas decorations for your interior.
Silver and White Christmas Table
Decorating the holiday table is a wonderful opportunity to show off your creative ideas, since the dining room is the central place for socializing during this festive time of year when all gourmets come into their own, and the only thing richer than the ornaments are the culinary delights.
If your selection consists of single-color fabrics and dishes, a festive touch to the design can come in the form of napkins – decorated with the Christmas tree ornament, metal and crystal decorations, lace bows. Napkins can be arranged in a variety of attractive forms, such as flowers, leafs, ties, swans, and many others folded pieces of art.
Small house made out of cardboard is a cute and practical decoration. It can be a way of serving dessert, giving gifts or holiday greetings to your family and friends, as a kind of a seating card, or simply – a lovely ornament for your table.
Festive cutlery in matte or gloss variations, as well as wine and champagne glasses – these are the required ingredients of any holiday table. Cheers!
“Icing on the cake” is the centerpiece – a silver candlestick or the combination of silver candles, glass ornaments, paper stars and snowflake-looking sweets.
Made out of wool or cotton wool, and accessorized with buttons, into our homes comes the snowman, and with it the refreshing effect of winter whiteness. Place it on a glass or metal tray, surrounded by pinecones and “snowflakes” – coconut-covered sweets, in this delicious case.
Glass Christmas Tree
Chair slipcovers, tablecloths, table toppers, napkins and dishes in neutral tones (white, silver), create a basis on which the golden ornaments come to the fore and warm up the arrangement.
The centerpiece can be a glass Christmas tree (created out of glass vases and jars filled with gifts and sweets) or a miniature Christmas tree; a large bouquet of flowers, candles placed on the mirror or some other reflective surface, etc.
Glittering stars, scattered on the table or on the wall, will make this holiday story, even more, magical.
Message in a Bottle
If you are looking for a creative way to envelope your holiday greetings, a glass bottle of any shape or size can do the trick. What about the message? Hand-written, of course.
White and Gold Christmas Table
A tablecloth with gold ornaments is a lovely choice. Its appearance can add a touch of warmth to glass ornaments and crystal glasses, white plates, and silver or white napkins.
The best way to emphasize the richness of the tablecloth is to select single-color plates. Of course, monochrome does not necessarily mean simple, since the relief texture and unusual shapes have a significant impact on the appearance of the dishes.
The combination of white and golden tones is among the most popular ones. The festive look in the interior can also be created by the gold-silver, green-gold, red-gold, red-silver color schemes, as well as other combinations with the colors of precious metals. Gold and silver plated ornaments sparkle due to the reflection of light, which makes the room more luxurious.
Red and White Decorations
Red accents in a white design story can “spice up” the atmosphere. It is considered that the red color raises the adrenaline level and body temperature. Therefore, decorative details in this color are recommended especially during the cold winter months, but also when you want to bring the extra energy into your space. So, put the gifts in white boxes and seal them with red hearts.
