Ornament Obsessions

One of my first childhood memories is of our Christmas tree.  My parents and I would make the trek to Knoxville to pick up our order of ornaments at Hallmark, and I would love getting to help decorate the tree.  Taking down a Hallmark tree is a completely different story.  We would all dread trying to match what seemed like a million ornaments to their very specific boxes, before carefully wrapping them up and packing them away.

One year, my mom decided she'd had enough.  We bought a ton of brightly colored green, pink, silver, and purple bulbs and matching garland that looked like Mardi Gras beads and did a 60's themed tree.  A few years later, we did a candy themed tree.  When I went away to college, my mom gave me a tiny silver tinsel tree, which is what I've used in my apartment for the past two years.  Long story short, I've come to believe that a decorated Christmas tree should be fun and show off your personality.

I've done some digging and found some really fun ornaments.  We're all in different places in life, so I've picked ornaments from all price points.  (They're all under $30!)  I've linked to them underneath and included pricing, but you can also check them out just by clicking them in the collage to make things a little easier!

Cuties that didn't make the collage cut:

Sometimes it's just not possible to fit all of the cute things that you've fallen in love with into a collage.  Here are some additional ornaments that I couldn't cram on to the collage, but that I still find to be adorable!  I love ornament sets because they're affordable and can fill up space on a bare tree.

I want to hear from you - which ornament on your tree is your favorite?!  (If you don't celebrate Christmas or don't have a tree, I'd love to hear about your favorite holiday tradition!)


  1. These are adorable! We're starting our Christmas collection and both of our families buy ornaments in places that they visited! We have ornaments from all over the world, and I can't wait to decorate our tree!

  2. I am a huge ornament fan. My godparents used to send me a different one each year so I always grab a few to decorate my tree. Jess at Just Jess
