Green and White Make Christmas Just Right!

Are you dreaming of a green and white Christmas? You might be, after seeing these images. Santa in green velvet aside (the jury’s still out on that one), how about a splashy collection of green ornaments for the tree? You can choose from lime green, pale spring green with white “snow,” or green-on-green with ribbon trim; you can even have a green holly print on white on an ornamental reindeer! Want a truly creative way to use green? Make green snowflake shapes out of evergreen branches and hang them in your windows…trimmed with silver ornaments, tan gingerbread cutouts, and a little glitter. Green and white pair up on silk poinsettias — frosted with glitter for extra “glam”— and on Christmas stockings in shades of jade and pomegranate. And don’t forget those green-frosted Christmas tree-shaped cookies!

Remember those angel wind-chimes powered by white candles? They’re still around, an ornament many of us remember from our childhoods. White embroidered stockings look terrific on a rustic mantel trimmed with white wire “trees” and pine; pure white candles, with silver ribbon, are magical in evergreen centerpieces. Make a wreath with white ice skates mounted on a wreath base covered in “socks” and tied with red, green, and white ribbon; spell “Noel” with white cardboard letters trimmed in green and red. Crocheted green trees on a white pillow are cozy; a green satin pillow with red and white poinsettia embroidery is classy. Put out Christmas candles trimmed in white “lace” (actually skillful wax carving) or snowflakes (ditto); and white and silver dishes make any holiday table shine. And there are more ideas yet — take a look at these and have fun!
