Christmas Decor at White’s Haven


Please take a stroll through our Christmas Home!
Our family room
Comfort and joy and Christmas Decor! Christmas is such a magical time. As a child I remember starring into a shiny colored globe hanging on our tree and getting lost in the reflection and in my imaginings. Our Christmas tree is the result of many years of lovingly collecting meaningful ornaments. Vintage keepsakes that have been passed down from my Mothers tree; cherished ornament gifts received from family and friends.



Why some are not ornaments at all , but have rightfully earned a place on our tree as important mementos. My childhood pendant watch; a vintage wee baby doll; even an adorable tiny Avon strawberry perfume bottle found it’s way on the tree lol! I display my mother’s vintage ornaments in a Christmas green glass bowl. The Santa mug is mine from when I was a child…notice one side is Santa and the other is Mrs. Claus…It still makes me smile. Last but not least is my childhood tree top angel, one of my favourites. As I walk through our home and gaze into the shiny bulbs I get lost in my childhood memories of Christmas past.

On the Dining Room sideboard this year I filled glass vases with more vintage ornaments.
I love how they sparkle from the lights
The dining room tree is adorned with vintage and home made embroidered decorations. I also add many cardinals and woodland type ornaments. And yes, on the right is a four foot Santa Claus!

More Shining vintage bulbs gathered together 
in a ruby bowl on another sideboard in our foyer.
I love how you can see the reflection of the tree in the mirror!
