Doesn't this just scream out for some ribbon or a Petite Splendor? White_Christmas_1.com
You can be sure to have a white Christmas this year no matter where you live if you just get a little creative with your decorations. Have any old wreaths around? Maybe the color has faded in spots or there are tiny cracks or stains. Or pick a wreath up at a craft store. You can get a really inexpensive one, one that might look pretty cheesy on its own. And while you’re there, pick up some white florist’s paint. You can use other spray paint, but florist paint interacts better with most surfaces – like plastic or especially natural wreaths. Grab some white place settings, too. You may do better at a party store for that. But in either case, get solid colored plates and such.

Now, spray everything white. That cheap plastic plate suddenly becomes elegant, and that old wreath looks fresh and clean. Have any stray beads or little balls from other decorations? Spray them white and arrange them around some pillar candles on one of your newly elegant plates (for decoration only of course), and you’ve got a beautiful, easy, inexpensive centerpiece. You can see to the right how a pale accent color adds to the look.
Use one of our winter luminaries instead of pillar candles.
Or instead of candles, use one of our tall luminaries. Or scatter some of our Petite Splendors among the white balls and ornaments for some color. Or even better, use some of the ornaments that are the Products of the Month. Have fun and be creative. It’s amazing how a coat of paint gives anything a new, fresh look.
For the wreath, maybe put a big bow at the top for color. Or wrap it loosely in ribbon. December’s Product of the Month can come in handy again: Hang some on the wreath.
This all-white snowman luminary available at our retail store would look gorgeous in a white Christmas display!
Our December Product of the Month. These are great for adding some color.
Oh, and by the way, while you’re shopping, pick up some of those tiny Christmas lights in red, maybe three or four other colors, too. Hang onto them. They’ll be good for some upcoming posts.
