Decorating the Christmas Tree with Hallmark

One of my favorite things about holiday decorating is the Christmas tree.  The sparkly ornaments and the glimmering lights always have a way of lifting my spirits.

Over the years and since becoming a parent, my Christmas tree sure has changed. Instead of being elegantly decorated in coordinating lights, bulbs and ribbons, it’s now adorned with action heroes, princesses and sentimental memories of first Christmases.  In fact, we’ve collected so many Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments, we’ve had to get another tree, one dedicated just for the children.

We received some new Hallmark ornaments to add to our tree this year and the children couldn’t be any more excited.  They really look forward to being able to hang some of their favorite characters on the Christmas tree to enjoy during the month of December.

hallmark barbie keepsake ornament

This is my daughters favorite!  She absolutely loves Barbie and she absolutely loves shoes so it seems this ornament was made just for her. The Shoe Chandelier Barbie Ornament measures 3″ x 4″ x 3″ and retails for $17.95.

madegascar hallmark keepsake ornament

Alex the Lion is the star of the show as he balances on his unicycle all while juggling.  The Mane Event ornament measures 3.25″ x 3.25″ x 1.5″ and retails for $14.95.

hallmark spiderman keepsake ornament

When it comes to super heroes, my two boys love them all.  When they saw the Amazing Spider-Man ornament, their eyes lit up.  This ornament measures 2.75″ x 2.75″ x 3.75″ and retails for $14.95.

hallmark thor keepsake ornament

Last, but certainly not least is the Thor ornament.  This ornament comes with a base and can either be hung on the tree or connected to Iron Man and Captain America on a tabletop display.  It measures 2.5″ x 3.5″ x 2.5″ and retails for $14.95.

I love being able to get something that the whole family will enjoy, if only it is for a short month.  Every single day my children go up to the Christmas tree and tell me something about an ornament on the tree.  This isn’t something I require of them, it’s just that they REALLY love the tree and the ornaments.

Although the days of elegantly decorated Christmas trees are long gone, each year our Christmas tree gets better and better.

    We have many halmark ornaments as well. Some from when I was a kid. My girls are getting older but still love seeing all of their ornaments put up on the tree.

    My daughter just want to play with the bead garland from our tree… so I can keep my color scheme for now. She was excited about the pink & purple trees at Walmart though…so maybe I’ll get her one to put decorations on in her room 🙂

    We always go to Hallmark so the kids can choose one special ornament for the tree. These are ornaments they will ‘inherit’ when they are adults.
