Let's be honest, at one point in our lives, we all dreamed of a white Christmas. And why not? Imagine playing in the snow, making a snowman, and keeping the house warm over the holidays! Since we can't enjoy winter and snow in our country, we can still create a magical white Christmas at home with a few decorative wonders.

Looking for design ideas? Make sure you don't miss Objects: Re-imagined Christmas Accessories, an exhibit showcasing a classic all-white Christmas designed by third year interior design students of the University of Santo Tomas. Here's a sneak peek of what to expect:

The avant garde minimalist exhibit features a modern take on different traditional décor pieces such as balls, wreaths, trees, and deer that were handcrafted by the students. Each piece was made using materials like twine, paper, cloth, and wood.

In just one week, the students were able to complete 159 balls, 37 wreaths, 27 trees, and deer to fill up the space.

According to design lead Martha Tomas, this year’s theme was all white because they wanted to showcase kindness, hope, and peace despite the unfortunate events that happened this year. The team also went beyond expectations to make the exhibit more grandiose as it's the first time to be held at the UST Museum for the public to see.

The Objects: Re-imagined Christmas Accessories exhibit will run until December 18 at the UST Museum. Admission is free.
