When it comes to holiday decorating, there are many ways to highlight your home in its best light this season. Consider the color palette of white, silver and gold to accent your decor in our Winter Wonderland of holiday decoratives and ornaments shown below. Choosing only a few colors to shine here and there, creates a cohesive and more formal look throughout your home. The contrast between these subtle but beautiful hues and the green of your tree will make your Christmas tree pop like it never has before. Look for ways to incorporate white, silver and gold in other areas too. For example in the kitchen or dining room, use your finest white or stainless steel dinnerware and long stemmed glasses when serving guests. In the bed and bathroom choose your whitest linens to display. Our Snowflake Knit Throw will look great tossed on a bed, chair or couch. Any of these items featured here also make for perfect gifts this holiday season.
To create the feeling of a little silvery sparkle, consider either of these two ornament sets. First we have our Rainbow Glass Ornament Set, seen here to the left. Peace, Hope and Believe are three inspiring words that become synonymous with this time of year and handmade, glass art ornaments are a great way to display these joyous messages. A unique green border detail is reminiscent of French lace on these very special holiday ornaments. But what really will brighten everyone’s eyes this holiday season is the magic that is created when the glass is twinkling in natural sunlight, producing a rainbow appearance. Includes chain to easily hang and suction cup for each.
Next, although not featured here is our Art Glass Stars that will be the twinkle in your eye this winter season. Uniquely designed five point stars have a variation of textured and printed glass, bordered by lead-free solder. The artistic flare to these glass stars can be seen by taking note of their uneven star points. String to hang and mini suction cup for each included. When the light catches these just right, they’ll be the star of your home. Hang either of these sets as ornaments on your tree, hang in any window for an inviting presentation or display on a dark colored wall or door to see the details come to life.
Continuing on with our Winter Wonderland theme, we share with you our Ice Skates Wool Ornament, pictured here to the right. These wool ice skates are detailed with cream colored lace, tied up to a bow and have silver painted blades decorated with gold glitter. Speckled with faux snow and trimmed with faux white fur, our vintage looking ice skates can be easily hung on a tree with its silver string or used all winter long as part of your home décor. Other uses include to incorporate them in a mantle display, place on a windowsill or even use as a gift for the ice skating enthusiast on your list.
If you enjoy the sparkle, try our Glitter Lace Valance or our Glitter Lace Table Topper. Both are designed with an intricate pattern of snowflakes, scalloped edges and a touch of glitter weaved into the polyester lace material; made in the USA. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
In terms of lighting your Winter Wonderland, use white tree lights to highlight the ornaments and possibly white or silver garland on your Christmas tree. String close together to enhance your tree’s overall “glow.” Two lighting options from Sturbridge we know you’ll love, are our Plum Tree Lights and our Starlight Copper Chandelier. Seen to the left, our Plum Tree Lights are great because they offer versatility, thanks to their bendable branches. Creating romantic mood lighting, but also displayed in such a way that they appear as snow covered branches. Arrange these silk blossoms in your favorite vase or container and display on a table or hall table. Or, let stand alone and incorporate into a mantle display; the thin cord is 98″ long so it’s easy to manipulate and tuck out of sight. The Chandelier (not shown), is made from antiqued copper that frames the dozens of panes of glass. Making a striking statement in any room, this lighting fixture will help add to the ambiance of your home.
Don’t forget about more traditional and smaller lighting sources, like candles. Our Mini Taper Ivory Candles are perfectly sized to burn for one evening. These tapers fit all standard taper holders and offer a smokeless, drip-less and fragrance free experience. If you prefer a safe alternative to actual burning candles, consider our Everlasting Drip Pillar Candles. With the look of realistic dripping wax and an enchanting, soft candle glow, these candles will last forever. Either of these candle choices will be a lovely addition to your white, silver and gold decor.
Our collection of white macrame ornaments are unique and useful for this holiday season. Offering traditional display as an ornament, but they also make distinctive wrapped gift toppers, as seen with our Angel Macrame Ornament. The recipient of a gift like this might just like the wrapping and thoughtful inclusion of an ornament better than the gift itself! Macramé is a form of textile-making using knotting rather than weaving or knitting to form what appears as an antique lace. Another idea for our ornaments featured here, is to hang on a bottle of wine that you bring to the hostess of your next holiday gathering, seen here to the right with our Filigree Star Macrame Ornament. Or, use as a party favor on each place setting, as seen with our Cardinal Wreath Macrame Ornament. If it’s a tree you’re in search of, check out our Christmas Tree Macrame Ornament. Our macrame ornaments offer a pop of white wherever you like, to coordinate with your Winter Wonderland decorating theme. Happy Decorating!
