The Best White Ceramic Houses for Your Christmas Decor

One the more recent holiday decorating trends that I (and everyone else in the world) loves are white ceramic houses. I’m pretty neutral when it comes to how I decorate my home, especially for the holidays (I can’t do orange AND purple for Halloween people), so the white villages fit right in with my aesthetic and current style of my house decorations.

For the past few holiday seasons, I’ve picked up some of these white ceramic house decorations from various places (Hobby Lobby and Michaels if I remember correctly), and now it seems that even more stores are carrying their own versions. Whether you want a traditional, farmhouse, or Scandinavian look, there’s a collection for you. One of the collections I have at home even comes with a light inside, so it looks especially festive at night.

How to Decorate With White Ceramic Houses

I like to display mine on my dining room server since I don’t currently have a fireplace or mantel in my house (see photos from previous years here). Other ways I’ve seen them styled or displayed include as a centerpiece for Christmas dinner, in a kid’s room on top of their dresser (with their favorite action figures, Legos, or dolls) and even on bare kitchen counters to add some style. You can use one house as a focal point among other decorations like wooden trees or dough bowls filed with ornaments, or create your own little “Christmas village” with multiple sizes and styles of houses.

The best part? Since the houses are usually simple and white, you can keep them up all winter long. Just remove anything that’s too Christmas-y like a Santa figurine. I’m a firm believer that you can keep winter-themed decor up past Christmas (think evergreen trees, snowflakes, etc.)

Here are a few photos for inspiration from around the web.

  1. LOVE this post. I JUST bought several of these today from Target. I also picked up a few zinc houses. I brought them home and lined them up on my mantle to create a little village, alternating the white and zinc houses. It cost $60 to line my six-foot mantle. I really prefer the Pottery Barn and Anthropology varieties, but there is not enough varation in those styles and the styles at Target for me to justify the added cost.
