Christmas Decorating?

In my community that have a christmas decorating contest. I want to decorate our house but want simple and elegant. Do anyone know of any sites or have any suggestions?

Details:

  1. Simple and elegant to me always make me think of white lights, and silver decorations. You can even add a hint of blue, and it makes the perfect winter combination! :)
  2. for elegant and simple... stick to the more traditional decorations.... wreathes for the doors, candles in the windows, garland... and top it all off with tiny white christmas lights. That is my favorite type of decoration, it looks classy and festive and much better than the obnoxious things people put up most of the time!!
  3. Every time I think of Christmas, I think of a White Christmas. So, I am creating a Winter Wonderland. Actually, I am doing it at my home this afternoon (and I live in Houston!). Martha Stewart has an EXCELLENT idea on how to create shooting stars http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=c41cd90a63536110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=also_try_p9 If the link doesn't work, just search "shooting stars Martha Stewart". These are so elegant and easy to make. I couldn't find the star shaped wire things so I am creating mine with copper wire myself. Other people recommend bamboo stakes. I also glued silver snowflake tree ornaments to bamboo stakes that I painted black and put one white light behind each of them. This creates the effect of falling snow in my yard. I am then putting white lights on the grass to create a snow covered lawn. With all the white snowflakes and shooting stars, it is very elegant.
