Weekly Spotlight: Trimming the Tree with New Holiday Ornaments

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Handcarved Santa Wood OrnamentGlittered Santa Ornament SetDo 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!

Primitive Felt Stocking Ornaments

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.

Folk Art Festive Moose OrnamentNathan Reindeer Costume OrnamentNot a Creature was Stirring

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).

Pottery Heirloom Kitchen Accents

Not much says heirloom quality quite like pottery. With cherished items such as a Honey Pot, Garlic Keeper and a Personalized Wine Chiller, you can give an old world feeling gift to anyone on your list. Keep your honey tucked away, just like everyone’s favorite children’s story bear, for use when you need it for recipes or tea. Garlic keeps better in the garlic storage canister, with ventilation holes so that your garlic will keep longer. Make a great gift for new homeowners or an anniversary with a personalized wine chiller, available in many styles.
