Amazon.com Review

The many shades of white, beautifully complemented by the velvety verdure of evergreens and ivy, are a perfect choice for holiday trimmings--the decorations, the accents and accessories, the table settings. Glowing with candlelight and sparkling with sun-kissed snow, these pages are filled with glorious arrays of white and green. Noted designer Tricia Foley has a way with white: dozens of elegant little ornaments, a creamware-bedecked table, a frosty tree encrusted with crystal and silver decorations, an all-white gingerbread house, even a boxwood-swagged gauzy bed canopy. "Like a Currier and Ives print or a snow-capped New England steeple," Foley reminds us, "the image of the perfect white Christmas is firmly etched in our minds." Her visual feast shows how truly stunning holiday decor can be when planned in a symphony of whites. --Amy Handy

From the Inside Flap

Everyone knows that the best Christmas is a white Christmas-a traditional celebration with snow capping the eaves, a fire roaring in the fireplace, and a mistletoe ball hanging in the doorway. Tricia Foley, best-selling author of Having Tea, Linens and Lace, and The Natural Home, brings back the magic of the time-honored customs, along with her own white-on-white decorating style, to create the kind of Christmas that will make treasured memories for years to come.
        
With ideas for every room of the house, Foley shows how to borrow from the colors of nature in winter 'pure white and evergreen' to dress up the house for the holidays. She includes simple yet timeless suggestions for draping greens over the bed canopy, hanging all-white stockings of every size and fabric, lighting with votive candles, candelabra, and sconces, and wrapping with handmade papers and raffia ribbons. For entertaining, White Christmas presents the perfect Christmas tea, with snowy linens and homemade scones. Helpful tip boxes cover Christmas lore, favorite tales, and Christmas crafts, and a resource section provides useful lists of addresses, related books, and holiday songs.
        
For anyone who wants to make the most of the holidays, Tricia Foley's White Christmas is the ideal holiday decorating and entertaining companion.

This book was full of beautiful snowy white Christmas pictures. More pictures than projects, more of a decorating book. A lovely coffee table book, especially during the holidays.

This book was written in the late 1990s so I knew the photography was'nt going to be as current as what is now seen in books and magazines, but I was still pleased. It reminded me that white never goes in or out of style, and, including myself, has always had a devoted following. If you like the idea of a white christmas inside as well as outside, and want a book that captures that lovely timeless color, you too might enjoy this copy. So settle in with a hot cup of tea and a snuggly warm blanket by the fire and enjoy the pretty pictures of Tricia Foleys white christmas.

This book didn't give many new ideas , but is a very nice book for people who like to decorate for Xmas in a country nature setting. I love all of Trisha Foleys books, but this one just wasn't as inteersting to me as her others that she wrote for Victoria magazine. Makes a nice coffee table book to set out during the season.
