Trim the Tree Thursday – Nativity Tree Ornaments

Trim the Tree Thursday is sponsored by Brett at The Southern Hostess.

Ornaments with a nativity motif or theme celebrate that Jesus is the Reason for the season. Here is a theme tree decorated with such ornaments. The tree is four feet tall, lighted with clear mini lights. Trimmings for the tree include a gold bead garland, glass balls in gold, ivory and peach.

The tree is topped by an angel

Under the tree is the second nativity set I got for the collection. It was bought in December 1991 at Brooks Drugstore.

Here are closeups of the various nativity ornaments. They are of blown glass, wood, spun crystal, metals, plastic, resin, and so on. Most were bought brand new, but there are also many that are vintage.

For more Trim the Tree posts see the list at Brettinsky’s blog, now titled The Southern Hostess.


  1. What a wonderful theme for decorating the tree. I love it. We bought our first nativity scene this year. Why did we wait so long? It beats me. We are both in our 70s and I we decided we'd better not wait any longer. I'm featuring it tomorrow for Kelli's Show & Tell.

  2. Hi Carrie,This is really beautiful. Thank you very much for sharing it with us. ~Melissa :)

  3. Carrie, it's beautiful! The nativity set is really special too.
    Have a blessed Thanksgiving...

  4. I love the tree! Every year here, one of the churchs puts out 1000s of nativity scenes. It's such a beautiful site. Your side bar reminded me of it and you would love it, I'm sure. :)
