3 Styles of Classic Christmas Ornaments We Love

There’s always new and beautiful Christmas ornaments created each year here at Old World Christmas.

Our classic Christmas tree ornaments create a timeless look for the season’s main centerpiece. Each ornament is crafted from molten glass and mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for our customers. This technique dates back to the 1800s, making these ornaments classic in theme and design.

Here’s three styles of classic Christmas ornaments we absolutely love.

We know you will, too.

1. Nutcracker Christmas Ornaments

For fans of The Nutcracker, these ornaments are a perfect visual storytelling opportunity to hang on your tree. The story takes place on Christmas Eve in 1830 where young Clara’s favorite Christmas toy, the nutcracker, comes to life. The delicacy of the blown-glass ballet slippers, sugar plum fairies, Clara, mouse king, Drosselmeyer, and the nutcracker prince himself recreates this classic story in a stunning new way for Christmas and nutcracker lovers alike.

2. Nativity & Holy Family Ornaments

The story of Christmas is an important one in many religious circles. Bring the nativity scene to life among the branches of your tree with holy family ornaments to tell the story of Jesus’ birth. Recreate the scene from the Bible with the Virgin Mary ornament, baby Jesus, and Joseph, along with a few other animal ornaments that were near the manager that holy night.

3. Santa Ornaments

The Christmas season isn’t complete without a nod to jolly Old Saint Nick. Fill your tree with Santa ornaments of all shapes and sizes, and we bet he’ll happily fill your stocking (and beneath your tree) with lots of presents. When Santa’s not busy handing out toys, you might find him dressed as a fireman or rocking out to his favorite Christmas jams. On his days off, you’ll find him sunning himself or driving a golf cart around town.

Classic Ornaments Never Go Out of Style

Traditional Christmas ornament themes never go out of style and remain well-loved year after year. Whether you want to reminisce about The Nutcracker’s winter wonderland or give a tribute to St. Nick, you’ve got plenty of options to style your Christmas tree — big or small.

If you prefer to have your tree be an eclectic mix of your family’s favorite ornaments, that’s okay, too. You can always set up a miniature tree on a table or countertop decorated with a favorite, classic Christmas ornament set you love.

When you consider the care that goes into our handcrafted glass ornaments, you’ll appreciate the delicate pieces even more. Since these Christmas ornaments are hand-painted molten glass, they should be hung — just like your stockings — with care.
