White Christmas Tree Ideas
The Christmas tree is one of the most iconic symbols of the season. When your theme is white Christmas, it opens a lot of possibilities for decorating your Christmas tree.
1. Traditional Green Tree with Gold and White Ornaments
You don’t have to throw out your old traditional green Christmas tree to stay in the spirit of the white Christmas theme. You can use your old Christmas tree and decorate with white and gold ornaments. You can use unlikely tree ornaments like Santa dolls dressed in white and gold. The overall image is very clean and elegant.
2. Simple Christmas Tree with White Ornaments
Keeping all the tree ornaments in a single white color will also look beautiful as it would contrast with the dark green of the tree. It looks like a scene that you would see on a beautiful Christmas morning when snow has fallen lightly during the night to envelop the world in a beautiful, serene quality. If you happen to like drama and the serenity at the same time, decorating your tree this way is the best way to go.
3. White Colourful Tree
Of course, you can always use a white Christmas tree to keep in the theme of white Christmas. Since a white tree would create a perfect canvas for bright and colourful ornaments, you can use multi-colored tree ornaments that will make your Christmas tree pop.
4. Minimalist white Christmas Tree
A minimalist white tree would also work well because the color palette that you would be using can pull off a design like this. Your tree could be bereft of leaves and just colored in white.

5. All White Christmas Tree
Of course you could go all-white with your Christmas tree. If you do so, wrap a lot of Christmas lights around your tree because this will highlight the beauty of having it all in white. In broad daylight you might not notice all the beautiful intricate details but when dusk falls and you light it up, it gives off a beautiful white glow that will make your home more welcoming and festive.
