Family traditions are one of my favorite things about the holidays.
For me, it is so special to have meaningful things that we do as a family year after year.
A tradition that has always been a favorite of mine is our special dated Christmas ornaments. My parents started this tradition with their “Our First Christmas” ornament the year they got married. When my brother and I came along, they continued the tradition with us. As we got older, we got to choose our ornament, It was always a big deal to us to see what the new ornaments were and to pick out the perfect one for each of us. We made sure to get one with the year written somewhere on it, and every year when we decorate our tree, we get to look back at all of the ornaments through the years. Many of them represent something happening in our lives or something we loved at that time. For me, there are a lot of Cinderella and a lot of cute shoes!
When last year’s ornaments from The Vintage Pearl were released, we loved the idea of having a special ornament to represent our whole family. This year, when ‘our christmas family tree’ ornament was released, we knew it was perfect for our 2013 family ornament.
I love how the ornaments can be personalized for any family, big or small.
I’ve even seen people put their pets’ names–
they are so unique and so cute!
