White and Metallic Christmas

About a year ago I did a little post on adding shine with metallics, I enjoyed the glow of mixing

white, gold and silver so much in January, that I decided to use this theme in my family room

and Kitchen for Christmas 2014!




I keep tweaking the look, adding and taking away.


Along the way of decorating for Christmas, I received an e-mail from Liz from Hometalk,

asking me if I would like to curate a board on DIY Metallic decorations for the holidays.

Well, of course I said yes!

I had the best time, and Liz was a dream to work with, so pop on over and get even more DIY

inspiration for all of your holiday decorating.

Since it isn't likely that I will have a white Christmas in Texas, I am creating my own.

I just adore the look of a White flocked Christmas Tree and I found these 24 inch trees at

Hobby Lobby for 50% off, seems they are a perfect fit on the family room mantle.






I am using these White Christmas trees in my family room as an anchor for my metallic Christmas.





To keep my metallic theme going, I added some white and silver jeweled stockings.





I found this little wooden serving tray at Angel's Attic and painted it white.

Added some silver birds, mercury glass, burlap and another white tree.

Just for fun I glued on some peppermints-

there were more, but someone by the name of

Molly,  pulled them off!

My adorable grand baby....smile....




I always enjoy combing the old with the new when I decorate for Christmas.

So, the past couple of years I  have incorporated these two old black and white photos of Elk.

These are original photos which my Dad took, way back when.  I love them and I thought they

look pretty snazzy in these silver frames.



I have this odd ledge in my Kitchen, for so long it perplexed me and I tried to ignore it.

Now, I use it!





So, I put my favorite Birdcages on this ledge and two gold glitzy bells.




I left my all white Rooster.



In the background you can see the family room mantel, by keeping with my white and

metallic Christmas theme in both areas it creates continuity and harmony.




I love decorating for Christmas!


White, metallic, red, green or blue, how are you decorating for Christmas this year?

  1. Oh everything looks so pretty! I love white flocked trees too! They just glisten. As a kid, my dad and I were the ones to go and pick out a tree and get it flocked. It was always white. We'd have to go back later in the day or the following day to pick it up after it had a chance to dry. My dad had this light with a wheel with different color plastic shields that would turn - colors like red, blue and green...and he directed the light at the tree and it looked so pretty. We used to put silver and gold ornaments on it. Haven't thought about that in a long time. ♥

  5. It's all beautiful Jemma! I love mixing gold, silver, and white together. I've used a lot of that in my family room this year, but I always have to have red in some of my Christmas. You know me and red. lol! Love the new white tree. I was there and saw a couple that I loved, but I just had to resist. I have too much Christmas décor. Hopping over to follow your board. I've worked with Liz before and it was fun!
    hugs,

  6. Hi Jemma,

    Those miniature, white, flocked trees are adorable and so versatile, making a fitting feature for so many surfaces. Your collage is beautiful, and the sparkle of white, silver and metallic touches truly brighten up one's spirits as well as shine lovingly throughout your space. Thanks for sharing your Christmas creations!

    Happy early weekend!

  8. I just LOVE!!! this Jemma! I was recently in our local hardware store and saw a very pretty white tree all lit ... it just sparkled beside the traditional green trees. My husband thought I'd lost it when I admired how pretty it was (I'm normally a very "natural" decorations gal). Your metallic theme looks great through the two rooms, and you have lots to add to it. Love the elk photos ... makes me think if I can do something similar with a few moose photos I have in my files. Wendy x

  9. So beautiful, had been meaning to visit this post since I first spotted it on Google +, Jemma. I'm using gold this year, gold and aqua that is, for a coastal Christmas. So many ideas here. Love the cages, and the black and white photographs are genius, so very special.
