It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Families coming together, showing gratitude and appreciation for our blessings, and having a whole lot of fun over the winter period.
One of the ways that we can express ourselves at this time of year is through traditional Christmas ornaments – beautiful pieces that liven up sideboards, dining tables, and – of course – the Christmas Tree. Decorating the house during Christmas is a fun activity for all of the family; it truly is the first step in getting into the holiday spirit.
In this article, we’re going to be taking a look over some exquisite figurines to really fill your Christmas with cheer.
Miniature Christmas Trees
If you’re like most families, you probably already have a very large Christmas tree up in your home – most likely in your living room. Why not share some of that love to other rooms of the house?
Miniature Christmas tree ornaments are an elegant way to spread the joy – without any of the dreaded pine drop – and can be placed in even the smallest of spaces.
A Miniature Church
Whilst we may not all be religious, some of us – and our families – are. By displaying a miniature church ornament, there is a simple reminder of why we celebrate Christmas: the birth of Jesus and the Christian faith.
They come in a range of styles and sizes, as most ornaments do. Whether it comes in beautiful aluminium or as a homely wooden structure, this type of decoration would look gorgeous on a mantelpiece or sideboard – a great compliment to any Christian home.
A Toy Car
Here’s one to whet the appetite of any little ones you might have running around. Toy cars have to be one of the staples of Christmas décor. They have been around for years, and their popularity never falters.
It also helps that there is a great variety to choose from. The more modern models are flashy and expensive-looking. But who could deny that a stunning miniature carriage, filled with toys for all of the good little boys and girls of the world that Santa’s off to visit, just looks like Christmas?
The holiday season is all about giving, generosity, and love. And for a lot of children, their first Christmases can be some of their earliest and happiest memories. Why not get them excited with this celebration of presents?
It might get some of the older members of the household enthusiastic, too…
A Miniature Owl
Now this one’s a bit of hoot…
Adding a little bit of nature to your Christmas can be easily done by having miniature owls perched in your tree – or perhaps nestled in a wreath? They symbolise wisdom, as many of us know, and it was once said that those who hung owl ornaments were wishing for wisdom.
Cute, fluffy, and with a little hidden meaning, this style of ornament is certain to bring a smile to the faces of your guests.
Again, these are probably for the more religious amongst us – but what a beautiful way to commemorate the angels that showed the shepherds the way to where Jesus Christ was born.
How about having an angel perched on a high shelf – looking down and blessing your magical Christmas?
Frosty the Snowman
Fingers crossed we’ll all have the chance to make a real one – but just in case, why not decorate a bookshelf, tree, or mantelpiece with a familiar Christmas-y face?
In his knitted scarf and hat, and with a big smile on his face, a figurine of Frosty is sure to help bring a lot of jolly-ness into your home.
So, There We Have It…
