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.
