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.

These ceramic house looks very festive. They are such a cute décor piece. I loved the mantle arrangement.
Oh my goodness these are all so cute! I think I need some asap! I add to my Christmas decor every year! Pinning for later!
I love white Christmas decor! I’ll try and get a few houses this year and stack them on books. Thanks for the inspiration!
Love the look of them stacked on books!
This post is SO good – little white ceramic houses are the best but I only thought you could find them at Target.
I think Target may have started the trend- haha!
Oh my gosh love all of these ideas! So helpful!
I just saw these popping up at my Target finally and almost grabbed some! I love how they look stacked on those books; maybe I’ll go back for them!
So many cute options! I picked up a couple from Target for my kids to paint!
This is such a great comparison!! I love it! I need to go check them out ASAP!
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.
I actually went to Target to see if they had any more and they were wiped out here in NJ! Your mantle sounds very cute.
