It’s that time of the year! If you’ve been following me for awhile then you know how much I love to decorate with greens and whites! My Christmas decorating is no exception, I mean what better time of the year for green and white decor! Today I’m going to take you through a green and white Christmas home tour to share how I incorporate my favorite combination into our home during the holiday season!
Our Living room:
Let’s start with our living room. Being from New England we always get a fresh Christmas tree, I just love the smell and how fresh it looks. The only downside to a fresh tree is we have to wait until a week or two into December to put it up otherwise we will have needles everywhere! Some of the photos I’m sharing below are prior to putting up our tree. But don’t worry I’m sharing the tree too!
The fabulous lantern is from Antique Farmhouse, it was so fun to design! This exact lantern isn’t available at the moment but I will include other options below. I made a fresh greenery swag for the top with a big fluffy bow. Inside the lantern I placed cream-colored bottle brush trees and tiny white houses with lights. I also added some of my favorite faux snow from Pottery Barn, it is so real looking! I added a hanging star ornament and finished with some battery operated twinkle lights. You can watch me design this lantern here.

Across the room sits this white chalk painted vintage dresser. On the space above I have an all white gallery wall that has a variety of elements, some that allow for seasonal changes. Empty frames allow for me to hang a variety of items including this little snow flake pictured above. The antique salvaged piece has a little shelf which was the perfect spot for these paper stars. I love these stars for all seasons. You can see how I used them in this summer outdoor space and hung them on our bathroom shelves. I place a battery operated tea light in the stars so they glow. In this cement urn I placed these fabulous green and white berry branches from Hobby Lobby. I love how the green pops in this space!
Here’s our fresh Christmas tree adorned with ornaments, lights, ribbon and puffs of hydrangea blooms! I placed an antique finial as the tree topper and as you can see the tree sits next to our mantel piece. In this photo you can also see my DIY fire place screen. I originally made it for the summer months but I love it so much it stays in place all year round.
The coffee table has an old white velvet runner with three little white urns filled with fresh greens and a pillar candle.
And last but not least, of course the presents are wrapped in green and white! Here I placed a simple sprig of faux greens and simply slipped it under the knot.
The Dining Room:
This hutch in our dining room is so fun and easy to decorate. It holds a lot of my serving dishes, cake stands, pitchers and guest plates. Because of this, I simply add touches of decor for each season while the contents of the hutch stays the same. The all white dishes on the white shelves provides a nice neutral background for each season. I hung small wreaths from plates sitting in the plate rack on the bottom of the hutch. The shelves have greenery and ornaments laying around the dishes. For carry over, I used the same small white houses that I used in the living room lantern. On top are some white trees, tobacco baskets and a Christmas sign. To the right I have a large crock with a fresh Christmas tree with lights.
Even our DIY orb chandelier got some Christmas bling! I placed tiny cedar rings with white berries around each candle light.
Across the dining room is this little antique cubby cabinet. It is filled with small dishes, cups, snowflakes and little Christmas birds. I also added some of the battery operated tea lights to brighten the space. Above is a crate that holds more serving plates with small cedar wreaths and another white paper star. I found this Christmas tree print while thrifting, it was just $5.00.
The buffet is covered by a holiday table runner, Christmas trees, a garland and an arrangement of fresh greens and these beautiful casablanca lilies. Hanging in the window are these DIY glass ornaments. (see below)
I stumbled across these vintage-inspired ornaments at JoAnn’s. I love the timeless shape and the black mental top. It’s hard to see in this photo but the metal top is embossed giving it a real vintage feel. To make these I simply removed the top and then dropped a little sprig of greens and white blooms in. I then put the top back on and hung them from the curtain rods using black jewelry chain.
For my placesetting, I started with a silver charger. Then I simply stacked some white dishes including my favorite vintage milk glass dishes. For the top dish I placed these little dessert plates that I had bought years ago from Pier One. The napkin is green with white polka dots and sitting at the top is a little white bird.
I start my decorating with the coffee bar. This old vintage mantel serves as a shelf above a three-tiered tray and canisters. I add touches of Christmas throughout including changing out my everyday mugs to Christmas ones.
My canisters get a little stem of Christmas greens for the seasons. You can find many of my canisters here.
Sitting on the end cap of our coffee bar is a set of little black hooks that holds this tin wall pocket filled with faux Christmas greens. Also hanging is a marble cutting board and a chippy white straining ladle holding a tea candle.
When you walk in our front door we have a small foyer. On one side there is a white chalk painted pew bench that we placed hooks on. I hang a variety of decor items from these hooks. Here I hung a pair of knit mittens with Christmas greenery and berries stuffed inside.
Across the way is my green card catalog, one of my favorite projects to date. You can read about this apothecary turned card catalog here. I stacked some green and white covered books to create a book stack Christmas tree. Added a bow and some greens and then of course some twinkle lights.
