Need a little white Christmas right this very minute? No? You prefer goblins and gourds to sufficiently precede it? I hear you. PIN THIS POST to save it for later. But I’m bringing my YES. I don’t need snowfall or a glowing tree laden with silk ribbon or even a beautiful home tour. I need the light: the too good to be true Gospel story of Christmas. To soothe weary Bethlehem nights. I hope you’ll find ideas that have you looking forward to December with these holiday décor essentials in White Christmas Decorating Ideas? Timeless Neutral Holiday Decor.
White Christmas Decorating Ideas: Timeless Neutral Holiday Decor
Let the Christmas red pops be shiny apples, red gingham giftwrap and even cheery bright red Ilse Jacobsen boots, and let these lovely neutral pieces calm your holiday nest this year and beyond.
Holiday Wreath: Long Needle Pine
Isn’t it a bit wild and natural?
I haven’t met gold-toned Christmas bells I didn’t love, whether they are plain ol’ jingle bells tucked in vintage English crocks…
or the farmhouse variety which look so precious with a Christmas wreath.
Swedish & Scandi Christmas Decor Elements
These Swedish electric candelabra have been a part of my own holiday decor for decades, and they honestly look good anywhere you place them.
In a window sill, on a shelf, nightstand, dresser, or bathroom counter…they provide this wholesome vintage glow.
While I haven’t yet ordered this scented bell candle, I love that it is benefiting St. Jude’s.
Nutcracker Christmas Motif
If you haven’t discovered Rifle Paper Co., oh my goodness, there is so much whimsy and cheerfulness in the designs.

Fireplace and Staircase Ideas: Faux Pine Sprays
These hanging vines are so pretty and life-like, and best of all, you won’t still be vacuuming needles from the floor in the spring.
Tabletop Christmas Tree
Who says a beautiful tree needs to be nine feet tall? This juniper is sweetly petite and potted.
If your tree is not wee-sized, you may want this collar which is such an understated element for a crisp, coastal, transitional look.
Gingerbread Houses are the Perfect Neutral
Don’t you love how the color of gingerbread compliments green and white?
Here’s another idea for a pop of that gorgeous camel or burlap or hemp color for the shelf, coffee table, fireplace, kitchen counter, window sill or anywhere!
You can always use more cow bell, and bonus! These are functional bells in case you need a beribboned one on your sweet kitty or pup or goat.
It’s a Darlin’ Garland
On its own or with fresh greenery tucked and twisted with it, this is a versatile and timeless find. But don’t just take my word for it…
Look how sweet for a lovely neutral holiday tablescape:
Or twirled around the railing:
I can imagine feathers with this fine pine too.

What is it about this simple house silhouette with room for a glowing flame that sets so many folks at ease?
Basket for Holiday Cards

Christmas Tablescape Idea
How about building your whole tablescape from this inspiring Nutcracker design with its golds and pretty blue with green?
Timeless White Ribbon for Everything
It’s so luxurious and elegant on a wreath, gift, tree, or ?
Cableknit Christmas Stockings
My white holiday stockings are ivory velvet, but these are so tempting to add!
Pretty Neutral Throw Pillows
It doesn’t shout Christmas, holidays or even winter, and I think that is why I love it so much as a staple for neutral holiday elements. Every color will look stunning next to it.
A simple lumbar pillow in a great neutral is not as easy as one might think to find!
