Nostalgic Ornaments

Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

It’s true that the holiday season is full of centuries-old traditions, but with ornaments and tree decor, you can certainly add some creativity to the mix. Decorating your fragrant balsam fir or Norway spruce with framed portraits of your pet dog, treasured photos of friends and family and mementos of the places you love to go is a fun way to get into the holiday spirit and let your personality show. Whether you’re picturing cute and endearing or dazzling and glamorous, your tree easily sets the mood for the holidays.


At Pottery Barn, our expansive ornament selection helps you get started. The nostalgic ornaments selection captures traditional holiday scenes of reindeer, sleds, Santa Claus, Santa’s elves and more. Delight guests of all ages with cute and cuddly ornaments like a fuzzy caroling mouse or smiling elves. Show your sense of humor with vintage sweater ornaments or keep memories alive by putting up pictures of family members through the years. For an elegant look, try a beautiful glass cloche ornament that keeps a sleeping village or snow-covered church locked in time.


Made of unique materials like recycled bottles, felt and old mirrors, adding a few artisanal vintage ornaments to your tree is a terrific way to celebrate the season while supporting a good cause. These products are handmade by skilled artisans. Some ornaments in this collection forward a portion of proceeds to select charities, which is a superb way to get your house guest-ready while keeping the giving spirit of the holidays alive. Search this page for ornaments of all kinds, from soft furry and feathered critters to shimmering silver and gold stars and glass balls. If one is not enough, get a whole set of ornaments to add color and character to the tree.


Equally endearing, woodland ornaments are great for the nature lover. Highlight the serenity of a snowy forest with glittery snowflakes, frosted cloche tree displays, owls and other critters. A shimmering, sparkling glass globe draws attention to the tree. Top off the look with a tree topper made of pine, and celebrate nature throughout the house with ornate leaf and acorn-themed garlands.


If you don’t get snow during the holidays, don’t worry. Our coastal ornaments are made with you in mind. This fun assortment of ornaments features marine wildlife, anchors, life preservers and many more nautical symbols. Who knew that you could top your tree with a starfish or celebrate the holidays with narwhal and flamingos? Crafted from glass and adorned with beads and pearls, lobsters, octopi and jellyfish never looked so good on land. Add elegance to your tree with a translucent monogrammed globe, or show off your sailboat with a framed picture ornament.

With taxis, ships, airplanes and other modes of transportation, this fun group takes you to your favorite worldly destinations. A set of travel-ready ornaments like a map or globe, suitcase and passport is an ideal way to get conversations started among travel lovers. Look for an ornament dedicated to a place you love like Paris, New York City or Rome. Guests will adore your tennis racket, golf bag or gardening ornament. Hobby-themed ornaments are also a terrific way to show off your passions and favorite pastimes.
