A White Christmas

For the last couple of years I have been doing a white Christmas tree, it has taken preference over my other color schemes I have used in the past.  Don't get me wrong, I still love my pink themed tree of the past, and my red and gold themed tree, but right now the all white, creams, and crystals capture my heart. 

Two years ago I purchased a snow flocked tree, I just love it compaired to my solid green trees of the past, there is just something magical about the wintery white snow tips on the tree.  It makes a bit of a mess when setting it up and taking it down, but it's worth it.
Sorry it is not a full length photo, I could not stand back far enough with the tripod to get the full view, but I'll post a few photos of the sections of the tree.

I used white poinsettas, santas, and birds as the "character" theme.  Along with that,  just simple white, and clear glass Christmas balls, cream grapes, icicles, crystal and sprigs of glitter laden picks.

The best thing about all using a white and cream color base is that they make an excellent start for when I decide to add in a color or many colors depending on what color theme one would want to use.  My daughter has decorated her tree similarly, but has just added in blue ornaments to the white, and it makes a striking tree.

I love doing garlands, they are just so graceful looking and add a festive look to my fireplace.

I love these large white birds I found at Pier 1.  I only bought 3, one for the top of the tree and the other two grace each end of the garland.

 There are also white and silver butterflies added to the tree and garland.

I love these little white and pinecone birds too.

I just can't resist my Santas, I have to add them to every tree I do.

This is a sneak peek at my coffee table sparkle display.  Ah, my mercury trees that I bought years ago. I bought 6 in varying sizes, I think they go perfectly anywhere in most decors.  This year I added some gems to the trees.  I just love how the gems sparkle on the tree.   Right next to the mercury tree are a few other different trees added to my forest of glamour.   

Just a few close up photos of some of my ornaments on my Christmas tree.

I'll try too add in more shots of the coffee table and my dining room table in the next day or two.
