When I was I was little my mom would take us to the local art museum in Syrcause, New York called The Everson, to attend The Festival Of The Trees! This festival was one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season. The galleries were filled with large trees that were themed and covered in TONS of ornaments! Each tree had been sponsored by a company, a family, or restaurant and put on display to the whole community.
At the end of the festival my mom would let us pick out our ornament of the year! She would write the date and our name and the ornaments were added to the collection and the family tree. Now that I am older my siblings have taken their ornaments to their own homes. I'm the baby and since I live abroad, my own ornaments go up on the tree just like clockwork. Decorating, and unwrapping each one is magical as I have a memory of the tree festival stuck in my mind.
I still add to this collection every year! Adam is a bit behind but I've started his own collection as well so we can grow and create a tree of our own.
This year I have rounded up some of my UK favorite handmade and high street shops that have SUPER cute ornaments. I love to give these as gifts for friends or stocking stuffers!
Take a peek at my top picks for my own tree below and click the ornaments to shop! These fabulous tree photos are from the amazing Lauren Conrad.
