Are you one of those people who has to have a new Christmas ornament every year? Good news if you do! A group of eclectic bloggers headed up by Ariel at PMQ for Two, and I are spending today sharing some of our favorite ornaments. I normally buy a few new ornaments if I want to change the look of my tree or replace some that have broken but this year I needed more than a few. Last Christmas I used our small tree from Germany that I bought to fit in our tiny living room and it worked out fine but it was far from dramatic, This year we got a great deal on a new
Last Christmas I used our small tree from Germany that I bought to fit in our tiny living room there. It looked fine but it was far from dramatic. This year I got a great deal on a new GE 7.5′ Pre-lit tree from Lowe’s when it went $100 off at Thanksgiving (plus my employee discount.) The new tree looks amazing and so real but it was a lot more real estate to fill than last year. Plus, I thought my new mantle color called for a little change. So ornament shopping I went.
When it comes to Christmas decor my go-to place to shop is TJMaxx where I ran across these Isaac Mizrahi gold mercury glass ornaments which are a beautiful heavy glass but no problem for my artificial tree.
and it doesn’t hurt that they have a beautiful twinkle when added to the three.
I also bought a few aqua ornaments to tie into the new color on the mantle but my Isaac Mizrahi mercury glass ornaments are definitely my favorite for the season.
If you’re on the hunt some new ornament additions to your tree, either new or DIY, check out these picks from my eclectic blogger friend. I see a few I’d love to have…
