I have said for years that one year, I would forego all of my treasured ornaments from my travels in favour of an all-white Christmas tree. Each year, though, I can’t resist decorating my tree with my colourful ornaments. A cowboy boot from Dallas mixed in with a mini Vespa from Rimini with a side of clover-leaf angels from Ireland…how could I keep these sweet ornaments packed away?
That said, there are plenty of other opportunities to decorate with white each year. Wouldn’t a collection of white Christmas trees look festive on a sideboard or a fireplace mantel? Or even spread throughout a house? These 12 Christmas trees are delightful!
Are these pasta ornaments great or are they great?
Crate & Barrel will donate $10 from each purchase of this set to Food Banks Canada or Feeding America.
It may come as a surprise to many of you, but when it comes to Christmas, I am quite traditional. I am always eager to get a real tree in my home (usually around December 1st), and I decorate with ornaments I’ve collected from my travels, and a few that I pick up locally each year. Other decorations around my home are from my childhood, belong to my growing collection of reindeer, or are part of my growing Christmas Spode collection (Am I too young to have a Christmas Spode collection? Nah!). You can see some of my decorations on this guest post I wrote for Rox-Anne at Celebrating This Life last year.
All this said, I’ve noticed a lot more white trees and Christmas decor floating around blogs, Instagram pages, Pinterest, and magazine spreads. They’re absolutely beautiful, and I commend those who embrace an all-white Christmas!

Earlier this week, a colleague asked me if I had a white Christmas tree. Truth revealed – while I do have quite a few white ornaments, I mostly embrace a traditional green and red colour scheme at Christmas. I keep my decorations tame, but I do not shy away from these classic colours. I can’t yet bring myself to go all-white because I really like having a real tree in the house for the month of December.Â Surprised?
What do you think about having a non-traditional tree? Would you go for a white or black version?
