I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas

Dreaming of a White Christmas 

Well not exactly! I guess I've always had the "White Christmas" dream since I was a child. Living in the south there is very little chance of getting snow for Christmas. So, I decided to create my own little woodland tree covered with snow. I found a tabletop flocked tree and the moment I saw it I knew it was coming home with me. My white Christmas dream was going in the dining room! I usually display my choirs on the sideboard but decided the tree would work beautifully for this space. I moved the choirs to the living room. I'll share that vignette in another post. 
I'm using white for decorations with the exception of a pop of color in the little birds. The tree was the perfect size to sit down in a cut glass punch bowl for a whole lot of sparkle. I love sparkle! I've collected a few white animal ornaments and this was the look I was going for. 

These boxes contain and store my victorian ornaments and I use them throughout the house for decorating so they do double duty.

If you are still here thank you for your visit. I would love to hear from you so please leave a comment. That's the only way I know you came by! Do come again and see how I use my victorian ornaments.



  1. Love that gorgeous tree, Emily, especially with the room lights dim. Gorgeous photo. Love all your pretty whites...and, of course, the music too. I am still hoping for a better music player since mine loads so slowly. I tried yours below but I can't seem to be able to register. I'll keep at it.
    We have not moved yet, but we're getting there. Whew...quite a different Christmas this year. ;)
    Always a pleasure visiting with you.

  2. Emily, I just returned from Dallas, and we had a dusting of snow Sunday night. ;-)
    Rarely have we had a white Christmas in Texas, but it has happened. ;-)
    Your white tree and woodland theme makes me smile. I love this look! I want to ride in that fur lined sleigh!
    Merry, Merry to you! Will be in touch soon............Sarah

  3. Where I live, dreaming of a white Christmas is all you will get.

  4. Hi Emily, I like your "snow", not the real kind. I never dream of a White Christmas, not since I was about 8!! haha anyway your white woodland themed tree is beautiful. I love the owls. xo

  5. Hi Emily, your white tree and Victorian ornies are beautiful. Happy Christmas, Olive

  6. Your decorations are so beautiful and magical! I love the owls and birds...oh, and the deer! You've put them together with style! Happy holidays!

  7. Wow, what a pretty white tree!!! I love your decor, Emily. It's elegant just like you! Your Victorian ornaments are stunning. How do you use them all over your house? I want to see *hint, hint* :D

  8. Oh! I love your woodland white Christmas, so very lovely! Your victorian ornaments are so pretty.

    Merry Christmas!

  9. Love the tree, specially the birds and animals.

  10. Gorgeous! I love a white tree and your ornaments are wonderful. Dianne

  11. Emily, this is just breath taking! I love the idea of putting the tree in the punch bowl. All of your white ornaments and your bird ornaments are wonderful, and I love your vintage looking Victorian ornaments. That glittered sleigh and raindeer captured my heart. laurie

  12. Emily, how did I ever miss this post?! Your flocked tree is beautiful!! I love all of those sweet little birds and your vignette is so pretty and sparkly! Gosh, your sideboard looks amazing!

  13. What a stunning tree and it all looks so gorgeous. Love the sideboard vignette!!

  14. Emily, Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Your white tree is perfectly decorated and what a fabulous thing to use a crystal bowl for the stand. It all reminds of a Christmas eve when I was seven and it snowed. I stood outside and caught snowflakes on my tongue. What an unusual Christmas eve in Georgia.
    Wishing you and your family the best Christmas ever, and if it stays this cold, who knows, we might have a white Christmas. Wouldn't that be a thrill?
    Oh... love your music selection, too.

  15. Merry Christmas, Emily! Your version of a White Christmas is just lovely.
    We will have a green Christmas here, but that is pretty much the norm. Instead of walking in the snow we'll walk by the ocean and count our blessings. All the best to you in 2013!
