The Great Christmas Giveaway: Ornaments Galore


Red Mercury Glass Pine Cone Ornament

Christmas trees are like snowflakes. No two are alike. Some people opt for the minimalism of tiny white lights, while others go to tinsel town with jumbo multi-color bulbs. No matter which party you belong to, most trees have one thing in common – ornaments! Everybody has their favorite ornament. I like things with texture like feathers and fabric, my husband prefers more classic shapes, and my kids go crazy over anything glittery and gold. With so many Balsam Hill ornaments to choose from, you can easily match any decorating style, fit any family tradition, and perhaps even create some new personal favorites!


Woodland Bird Ornament With Dew Drop Feathers

Living out in the country, one of my favorite things to do is watch birds flutter outside my kitchen window. This Woodland Bird Ornament brings a little bit of that magic inside the house. His shimmery red stripe and the delicate dew drops along his feathers make him look right at home nestled amongst the tree branches. (Psst… we’re giving away an entire Woodland Ornament Set! Scroll to the end of this post to learn how to win.)

Balsam Hill Christmas Tree Inspirations: The Shasta Fir

Mount Shasta

Mt. Shasta is simply awe inspiring. Standing at 14,163 feet, it is the largest Cascade Range volcano by volume. It is a beautiful mountain and one that, in my opinion, deserves to have a gorgeous Balsam Hill Christmas tree named after it.

For years, we’ve received feedback from our customers saying they absolutely love our BH Noble Fir for its beautiful shape and sturdy upward sloping needles. However, some of them also wished the foliage were a color other than the classic silver-green of the Noble Fir. This prompted me to look into other possible foliage colors for this popular Christmas tree.

In my research of Christmas tree lots on the Pacific Coast, I found that most of the Noble Firs sold in the region had the same classic silver-green color, but that a few of them would have greener foliage.
