Why wait around on a good snowfall when you can summon a White Christmas within your very own home? Decorate in pristine white and shades of silver and gray for a look as perfect and crisp as the untouched snow. Whether you're adding some sparkle to your mantel or a little glacial charm to your windows, these neutral colors pair well with just about anything.

Start with your fireplace, then work outwards from there. White Christmas stockings add elegance at a glance. Choose a design with embroidered snowflakes and bead accents if you want a look fit for a flurry. For even more sparkle, choose a velvet stocking by Kurt Adler, Inc. with a silver, sequined tree. Since the color scheme is fairly simple, you're free to add extra shimmer and shine to keep things interesting. Moreover, sequins and glitter have a way of evoking icy mornings, where the yard and trees glitter with crystals.

How else do you keep this bold, blizzard style going? Consider a frosted garland for your mantel, complete with white twigs and snow-capped pinecones. Add a lively element to the entire arrangement with white reindeer decorations. Prancing through a winter wonderland with their beautiful antlers and downy fur, these gorgeous creatures bring magic to a scene of your own creation.

Move along now to your Christmas tree, a bastion of all things glimmering and bright. A white, fringed tree skirt with beaded snowflakes mimics the look of a snowdrift at the base of your tree. You can personalize this skirt with your family name or simply cover it in a deluge of gift boxes when the time comes! Consider also a set of snowflake ornaments, or perhaps glass baubles with crushed platinum flakes that appear to "melt" down the sides. Finally, what is a tree without a topper, and you have plenty to choose from in this collection. Angels in flowing robes with feathered wings add a note of calm to the presentation below.

Take white Christmas decorations to the kitchen as well, where they're sure to be fawned over by guests. A natural place to lavish this pallid shade is on the tabletop with a runner and fabric napkins. Or choose a tablecloth with a burnout snowflake motif, then let gold beaded placemats set the stage for your plates and silverware.

But what should you do for a centerpiece? You can add a pop of color with a wreath-turned-candle ring formed of metallic gold leaves, silver berries, and champagne-hued poinsettias that weave elegantly into the rest of your decor. For a sideboard or a window ledge, spring for a clear acrylic pine tree or church. The water-filled centers swirl with glitter for an absolutely mesmerizing display.

Top off a scintillating scene with a white wreath brimming with poinsettias and pine, or try a lighted canvas to conjure a magical mood. Finally, for your curio cabinets or shelves, try a Snowbabies(R) figurine from Department 56(R). Little children bundled in snowsuits and hats frolic with polar bears and other Arctic wildlife, relishing the wonderland you've fashioned all around them.
