Silver has such a luxurious and elegant appeal because of the shine and clarity. Today, we use many types of decorations, but silver and plated silver ornaments always infuse a sense of legacy to our holiday decorating.

Balsam Hill brings this same wonderment in one very special decorating showcase made in partnership with Reed & Barton, a trusted brand of gifts and tableware since 1824. We are proud to unveil the Reed & Barton Ultimate Holiday Sweepstakes.

Dagmar Obert Decorates with Reed and Barton Silver Ornaments on BH Noble Fir Wreath

To celebrate this wonderful partnership, I recently had the pleasure of decorating with some of Reed & Barton’s most classic ornaments. The company has earned a reputation for quality and craftsmanship from the time of the American Revolution. This gives holiday decorating a sense of history and an enduring allure.

I chose to decorate our BH Noble Fir™ Wreath – crafted meticulously to mimic fresh cuttings of the Abies procera – with exquisite Reed & Barton ornaments. The rich blue-green silver foliage beautifully plays off the cool tones and luster of the silver. I worked with an array of shiny, finely crafted collectibles ranging from old-world Santa to snowflakes and Christmas bells.

Two Reed & Barton ornaments I especially like are the Legacy Bell, which shows the smoothness of the sterling silver, and the Snowdrop Snowflake, which shows ornate detailing. These items are packaged in a sophisticated red flannel bag, ideal for both gift-giving and storage, and come with a red satin ribbon for hanging.

These ornaments could start a lasting Christmas decorating tradition. They are dated ornaments that can mark the birth of a new grandchild. The photo frame could hold a picture of a wedding or grandmother that has passed on. The other collections also have unique features to capture family memories and treasure them year after year.


Decorating a Balsam Hill tree, wreath, or garland with these special handcrafted ornaments allows one to look back on the year and chronicle the story of one’s family using trinkets and mementos that also serve as signature décor.

Reed & Barton products are not only for embellishing your Christmas masterpiece, but also for creating lasting symbols of the season. These beautiful, historically inspired collectibles are known for their superior design and craftsmanship.

And now, you have the chance to experience the timeless elegance of Reed & Barton and Balsam Hill together in a grand decorating showcase.
