We moved this year and I ditched our old fake Christmas tree (it was a rather low budget buy and made it through two years). While we upgraded condo size, we still don’t have space for a full size Christmas tree. This year, I decided to get Crate and Barrel’s metal Christmas tree, meant for showing off Christmas ornaments.
The 26 inch tall metal Christmas tree arrived this week, and to be honest, I may also buy the smaller 16 inch tree. I like these metal Christmas trees for a few reasons:
- They’re affordable, at $60 and $35 each, they’re not cheap, but they’re also affordable.
- Both metal Christmas trees have a smooth, modern touch.
- The focus of your eye goes to the beautiful Christmas ornaments!
Another great thing is I can use these as decor for years to come, whether or not we also have a traditional Christmas tree.
I LOVE Land Of Nod’s adorable plush ornaments celebrating best friends. The best friends plush ornaments celebrate various terrific pairings, such as milk and cookies, all designed by Michelle Romo.
All of the Christmas ornaments are wool with polyester filling and hang on cotton strings. The fun, kid-friendly, ornaments all feature cute faces.
In addition to the milk and cookies plush ornaments, Romo designed hamburger and fries, salt and pepper, and rainbow and cloud Christmas ornaments.
While these pairings would look great on one Christmas tree, they make may great gifts for pairs of best friends– such as your daughter and her best friend.
This peppermint glitter ornament will stand out on your Christmas tree this year. Each of the glass ornaments were hand-blown and then decorated over a seven day period. Primarily red and white, the ornament also features green and gold glitter.
If you don’t think this peppermint glitter ornament fits with your Christmas tree, it is packaged in a beautiful lacquered box. Therefore, it may make a great Christmas gift for any family member or friend.
Your Christmas tree should celebrate what you love in life and these affordable collegiate Christmas ornaments make a great way to celebrate your alma mater. While I didn’t attend Iowa, my boyfriend and my parents did, so I see the Iowa Hawkeyes version as a great addition to our Christmas tree this year. In addition, we’d probably get a University of Nebraska ornament, as I am a huge Huskers fan.
The Santa-featuring ornaments measure 4.5 inches in diameter and are made of glass. They feature Santa Claus standing next to a tree decked out with the college’s colors and a larger ornament bearing its logo.
The affordable collegiate ornaments are available in 32 different styles including:
- Auburn University
- Louisiana State University
- Michigan State University
- Ohio State University
- University of Michigan
- University of North Carolina
