Among red, green and white, silver ornaments will undoubtedly top the list on almost everyone’s holiday decoration shopping list. As timeless as “Silver and Gold,” the Christmas carol made famous by the Rankin/Bass Holiday special Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, these silvery hued decorations are as multifunctional as they are multifaceted.
They can easily be matched with other holiday décor, meaning a fresh color scheme can be added without having to sacrifice family heirloom ornament collections. They can be dressed up or down, depending on how fancy one would like their tree to look. Luckily for us, they are available in a wide variety of shapes and styles to choose from.
Like Christmas traditions themselves, a ball ornament is classic and timeless. Some choose to feature the ball ornament as the star of their tree, deciding against including any other types or styles within their overall design. However, others prefer to showcase it as an accessory ornament to other colors and styles. They are very convenient, in large or small sizes, to use as a fill-in ornament to avoid having empty holes among the tree branches. Regardless of how one chooses to use them, silver ornaments will ensure the tree is the centerpiece of the room!
Remembering the importance of Christmas and why it’s celebrated is key to those who consider themselves to be spiritual. As a reflection of this, consider showcasing a selection of silver crosses on the tree. Stainless metal crosses, glass crosses with sparkle and shine or mirrored crosses are beautiful options.
Nothing says “Winter Wonderland!” quite like a frosted tree covered in arctic style ornaments. Glass beaded, 3D plastic or covered in glitter, snowflakes are available in many styles to fit any decorator’s design aesthetic.
Finials are sophisticated, classic and very traditional. Available in a variety of designs, they are typically longer than a traditional ornament. They attract attention by being slender and coming to a point at either end and have distinct shapes, such as oval or square, in the centers. Whether mirrored or glass, finials are delicate yet stunning.
For a look straight out of the North Pole, silver ornaments can be made to look like icicles or crystals. Draped along the tree, they exude the wintery feel that we all love when the holidays come around. Made of glass or plastic, an icicle or crystal ornament will make it seem like Jack Frost handled the Christmas décor this year!
If the theme of silver ornaments has already been chosen, but one would like to still incorporate their favorite holiday characters into the tree, there is truly something for everyone! From a frosty colored Santa to a winter hued snowman, the possibilities are endless. Even specialty décor, such as items for baby’s first Christmas or a new bride and groom, can be found in this color scheme.
Simple, beautiful, and elegant, silver ornaments make the tree sparkle and shine just as it should! Set against some twinkly lights and a roaring fire, they perfectly reflect the beauty of any Christmas tree.
