Do you put your Christmas tree up immediately after Halloween, or wait until the turkey is carved and leftovers are stored away? No matter the timing, trimming the tree is always exciting, especially when you add new holiday ornaments.
Here are five of our favorite new ornaments – both from the pages of our catalog and exclusively on our website. Happy holidays!
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Santa ornaments combine festivity with the comforting nostalgia of the season – especially when they are embellished with glitter and arrive as a set. These glittered Santas add a cohesive look to your Christmas tree, and twinkle among string lights and other holiday home accents. This wooden Santa is hand carved – no two are alike – by artist Les Smith, and adds a rustic, log cabin feel to your ornaments and decorations. It also makes a unique gift to bring to a holiday party.
Stockings Hung by the Chimney with Care
A primitive take on Christmas stockings, these felt ornaments feature a slender design and antiqued jingle bells. Made right here in Maine, you can place a piece of the Pine Tree State on your Christmas tree this year, give one of these ornaments as a gift to a party hostess, or even use to embellish a Christmas gift.
You may recall the George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other Bert Anderson folk art ornaments. This year, we are introducing his new folk art moose, featuring the whimsical twine arms and legs and a blue Christmas gift wrapped beautifully. This ornament makes a charming complement to your country home accents and rustic decor.
Also from a customer favorite artist, Nathan the Reindeer is a glittery holiday spectacle that adds childhood whimsy to your tree or festive holiday displays. The large candy cane adds a pop of color, as do the striking blue eyes of this character designed by artist Bethany Lowe (find more of her ornaments here).
