SNOWY WHITE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE DISPLAY
What could be prettier than adding a white Christmas village display to the top of a table or other flat surface in your home during Christmas? And it was so easy to put together! I’m sharing my miniature village and I hope you have one as part of your Christmas decor too!

Today I’m part of the PINTEREST CHALLENGE sponsored by Cindy at Country Road 407. And if you are coming from her post, Welcome! Welcome to all!
Each month Cindy chooses a Pinterest Pin and challenges a group of bloggers to interpret that pin.
October’s challenge was this darling cut-out village in a jar from Northern Feeling.
Isn’t that little village just adorable? So Creative!
WHAT I USED TO MAKE THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE DISPLAY
This challenge was meant for me! I don’t collect lots of holiday tchotchkes but I do love trees and little houses.
A few years ago I found little craft paper mache houses and was inspired to transform them into little Christmas houses. You can see them HERE.
To make them Christmas village worthy I painted them white and silver-leafed the rooves. What a fun and easy project! Look for an upcoming DIY soon.
You can see how I used them on my Christmas Mantel HERE.
So I brought the houses up from the basement along with the white trees I collect to be the backbone of my snowy white village!
To mimic the jar Katrin’s paper cut out village in a jar I chose to use my favorite cloche.
I usually pair a cloche with a cake pedestal. I just love to elevate them. And a pretty cake plate is the perfect riser! It makes the cloche stand out even more!
I also used lots of white/natural bottle brush trees I’ve been collecting for years! I have such an obsession with Christmas trees!
And to make this pretty little snow-covered village I also used another of my favorites.. silver and mercury glass ornaments.
And of course S-N-O-W! Oh, I love snow! Faux or real! So I used it liberally and it gives this village that fuzzy, burry, ethereal look!
Best snow ever is from the Pottery Barn. I’ve used it over and over again for years! See it below.
The little houses are lit with a string of fairy lights.
When I made these Christmas houses I cut a flap in the back of each house to put a battery tea light in or, in this case, fairy lights.
I also circled the bottom of the cloche with the fairy lights too!
BE CREATIVE AND CREATE
Once I collected everything I went to work creating a little snowy village!
It was really so easy!
The little houses became the focal point of the little snowy scene and the trees, ornaments and snow filled in this dreamy little village!
It’s important to find inspiration and use it as a springboard to create the ideas in your head!
And there is no better time to bring those sugarplum ideas to life then at Christmas!

I love your beautiful winter scene. So happy to be doing this challenge with you.
Hi Rachel, isn’t this such a fun challenge!
Your snowy white Christmas village is so pretty, Yvonne! At night it must look so charming as the twinkle lights glow. I’m already looking forward to your 2020 Christmas decor!
Thanks, Paula! I’m so jealous (in a good way) that our dear friend Julie got to spend time with you!
This is so magical! I now want to go buy up all the white mini trees and recreate this look. You are so inspiring. Thanks so very much for the sweet, sweet words!! 🙂 XO, Christy
Christy, true words!You are amazing!!@!!
Hi Yvonne, I love the addition of the mercury ornaments! Classic look! Love it! Thanks for always inspiring me!
Wow! This is simply stunning! I love your idea using cake stands to showcase those gorgeous houses! I just might have to try this this year! Thanks for the inspiration!! Definitely pinned this one!
THANKS so much, Korilyn. I love my pinners!
Your snowy village is mesmerizingly beautiful. It makes you gaze at it for a long time and soak up everything. And what a great idea to paint little houses and use silver leaf. I love them. I bet when it snows up there overlooking the golf course will be serene! I’m so jealous. We don’t get snow where I’m at in Texas really. If that blue moon comes around and it actually snows, it’s melted and gone by the next day. Thanks for joining in Yvonne. Pinned
What an absolutely enchanting scene! I adore your snow vignette.
Thank you Laura! So sweet!
It’s all so magical and stunning, Yvonne! What a brilliant idea to go with a white and mercury glass scheme. I hadn’t thought to use white bottle brush trees, and they are just different enough in color to add contrast. The cake stand as a pedestal is a great idea too. Oh, how I wish I had a basement to stash away my goodies! Pinned!
Thanks, Crissy! I tend to gravitate towards the same elements. So I use them over and over.
I love your White Christmas Village. Such a beautiful display on the mantel. Reminds me of the years we lived in the mountains of Oregon, tons of snow for Christmas.
Hi Marty! I love that you put the Holy Family under your cloche.
Yvonne, aren’t cake stands the best for vignettes! Love your white houses and the overall theme of your snowy village. I use my Dickens Village every year and it makes any scene special. And you are so right ~ you can’t have enough snow.
Yes, snow make anything better.
BEAUTIFUL and PINNED.
Your snowy white village display is simply magical and inspiring to use cake stands more. They really do make the difference don’t they. Love your bottle brush tree collection too. Pure perfection Yvonne!
Absolutely beautiful, Yvonne. Yes, cake plates and cloches certainly marry each other beautifully. Love how it all turned out!
Just lovely, as always… Your snowy Christmas village with the cloche is perfect for this Pinterest Challenge! I need to work on hiding the wires on my fairy lights! You did a great job! and I’m checking out that PB snow!!!
I love a white Christmas! I have to enjoy it using fake snow but all the same, it’s white! I bought quite a few small, ceramic, white houses from Target last year and hope they have them again this year because I’m going to need more! I love how you create different heights using cake slavers and cloches. Pinning this for inspiration!
Your village is so beautiful! I love the little houses and the trees!
Thanks, Kristin! This Pinterest Challenge was so much fun!
I love what you did with this! Pinned.
Love your wood houses, Yvonne. All the snow and lights you’ve added created a magical setting and one that I’m sure will be enjoyed throughout the holidays.
Yvonne this is all so magical and gorgeous! I love the neutral colors and the way you have set up the perfect winter scene with so many of my favorite things! I can’t wait to see more of your Christmas this season!
So fun joining this challenge with you.
Happy Thanksgiving, Amber!
Stunning and so peaceful, Yvonne! Please share the manufacturer and source for the white server in these photos.
