Dreaming of a White Christmas

Even without snow in the forecast, you can guarantee a white Christmas with light, bright, romantic decor.

There are few things more perfectly serene than a gently falling snow, and that's the guiding philosophy behind creating a white holiday d├ęcor.

And the best place to start is with decorating the tree. Wrap the tree in white feather-boa garlands (available at crafts stores), and fill in the gaps with frilly feathery plumes that create the look of an early morning frost.

Be careful, however, as white can visually flatten out a room. Add textural interest by using a wide array of materials, such as fringed and crystal ornaments, on the tree.

Wrap packages in decorative handmade papers and put them in opaque vellum gift bags to form a blanket of white beneath the tree.

For extra frills, this plain ball ornament is trimmed with flirty ruffles and dabs of glitter.

Give your tree party-dress panache with spiral ornaments made from fringe, gold beads, and florist wire. Simply weave the wire along the top of a short length of fringe, and twist in a spiral. Add a gold bead or two at the top of the wire, and you're ready to hang it on the tree.

Continue the look throughout the house by using lots of greenery and white poinsettias to contrast with the monochromatic scheme.

Warm up a white decorating scheme with lights that glow with a hint of yellow. Oil lamps, for example, and candles on the table or mantel cast light with just the right touch of warmth.

Natural elements, such as twigs and leaves, also add a touch of color; their warm tones and organic shapes contrast beautifully with white, formal items. Handmade papers cut and folded into holiday shapes are another warm winter accent.

In a guest bedroom, for example, an airy eucalyptus wreath filled with handmade paper cornucopias adds just a touch of holiday cheer to the room.
