I am known to exaggerate a bit. A few days ago, I informed my husband that it was “literally freezing” in our house. It was a blustery 73 degrees, which is pretty much the same thing. But this time, I am not exaggerating. This list really does feature the Best Ornaments Ever. The prettiest, coolest, most unique ones I’ve seen, all certain to transform your tree into a a true showstopper.
I let myself get carried away with ornament collections at my house. Eva has a Krinkles ornament tree in her room, and Lola has a cool silver ornament tree in her room. Every year, I buy the girls fun, frilly ornaments and new Mackenzie-Childs ornaments, which I put on Lola’s tree, and a couple of the Krinkles mini ornaments, which go on Eva’s tree. We also get a Swarovski crystal star to add to our tree every year, and have been doing that since our first Christmas as a married couple. Finally, I order a vintage-y tin photo ornament with a current family photo from Exposures every year. Whew! I got a little overwhelmed just looking at that list. I am a little obsessed with tradition, so I want to start these little traditions early and also start collections that my daughters will be able to take with them when they leave home, in about 523 years! So, without delay, here are my favorite ornaments. Here I think no description is necessary. The pictures say it all!
