How to Display 6 Common Christmas Collections
Emily likes the personalized approach to ornaments. Rather than going generic, she suggests choosing ornaments that hold sentimental value, narrating the story of your family’s journey. Drawing from her own collection, Emily emphasizes that each piece serves as a miniature time capsule, capturing memories and milestones.
Nutcrackers are on of Emily’s favorite festive pieces. Her mother collected Steinbach nutcrackers, so there is some nostalgia associated with these classic figurines. Whether sticking with Steinbach tradition or experimenting with diverse sizes and colors, incorporating nutcrackers into your décor brings in an element of height and tradition.
Pyramids are an often-overlooked festive piece. Originating from Germany, these hand-painted contraptions, with their moving parts, add a magical dimension to Christmas décor.
In Christian households, Emily recommends diversifying nativity collections by sourcing pieces from various cultures. Distribute these nativities throughout your home for a global Christmas ambiance.
Emily likes the idea of investing in sophisticated collections, such as the Spode Christmas Tree. Acquiring a new piece each year, as Emily has done, elevates ordinary gatherings. The integration of festive dinnerware adds a fun layer to your holiday parties.
