Awww, trimming the tree. It is unquestionably one of the loveliest pre-holiday activities. There are so many different directions to go with holiday décor: traditional, kitsch, sophisticated or glamorous (just to name a few!). Everyone has a different idea of the perfect Christmas decor. Take Lukus and myself. I love a stylish/ chic Christmas of metallics, matching ornaments and white lights. On the other hand, Lukus embraces a throwback Christmas with multi-colored lights, red, green, and cornucopia of ornaments.
Regardless of your style there are ornaments out there for you. Investing in special ones to capture the year, a specific event or person, is a great way to take the décor from the impersonal to the distinctive. Perhaps they just capture aspects of your personality. Whatever the case ornaments are a beautiful addition to the holiday.
Here are some fantastic ornaments, whatever your style!
Michael Aram Apple Ornament: Fruit has always been part of holiday decorating. This apple is both traditional and stylish. The color and texture would make it a stand out on any tree!
Nordstrom’s Hippo Ornament: I can’t help but hum “only a hippopotamus will do” when I look at this ornament. It is the perfect balance of class and kitsch that Lukus loves.
Roost Porcelain Feather Ornament: This collection of handmade ornaments is both delicate and beautiful. Not appropriate for a home full of kids, but perfect for a sophisticated tree.
Antiquarian Globe Ornaments: These globes of a masculine quality to them, perfect for a traditional tree. The globes have a rich quality to them. Great for the world traveler!
Crystalline Cockatoo: Now this bird is glamorous. This ornament has a wow factor and would work perfect in a celebratory environment. The bling is not for the faint of heart.
