With every holiday season comes beautiful new traditions, and our ornaments are a wonderful way to celebrate all of them. The limited-edition design for 2023 is a scaled-down version of our popular Newport frame, in gorgeous metallic silver with a pale blue velvet hanging loop. The ornaments can be purchased singularly or in sets of 2, 6, or 12, making it truly easy to decorate all your favorite spaces. And if you’re anything like us, the tree is only the beginning. Here, six inspiring ideas.

Merrymake the mantle

Loop ornaments through ribbons, fresh sprigs of evergreen, and winter berries for a look that’s pure magic. Mantles are a beautiful place to display images of your favorite moments from the year, as well as candids and portraits of family members–don’t forget pets! If stockings are part of your tradition, try adorning each one with their own special ornament.

Deck your doors

Instantly holidize a few rooms (or every room!) by hanging ornaments over doorknobs. For these frames, make sure your images are bold and close-up so they’re easy to see from afar. Think: fun selfies, pet pics, and graphic typography. If you’re expecting overnight guests this holiday season, place an ornament frame over their bedroom doorknob for a heartfelt welcome gift.

Make gifts extra special

A custom ornament creates the ultimate gift tag, and it’s so easy to add to presents of any shape or size. Just loop the ornament through the box’s ribbon or twine and just like that, you’ve made your gift extra special–and extra memorable. Photos of your favorite 2023 moments are great to frame, be it a first date, a hike you took together, or a silly selfie.

Adorn the dining table

If you’re hosting a holiday dinner party, wow your guests with a keepsake ornament at their place setting. Try a retro photo from past holidays, a fun pic from their Instagram account, or their name handwritten in beautiful script. Our ornament frames are also a stunning way to enhance a centerpiece: Simply tuck a few of them into greenery for a pop of personality.

Add personal style to staircases

When you festoon your banister in greenery, garland, and ribbon, try adding a few ornaments for an extra-stylish touch. A favorite moment from every month of the year will take you down (and up) memory lane, or create a cozy vibe with a winter landscape theme. If you’re feeling extra arty, try spelling out a festive message with a printed letter in each frame.

And of course, trim the tree

Ornaments are meant to be collected and cherished, and adding our frames to your tree over the years is a favorite tradition. School portraits capture a moment in time, while vacation photos are a perfect way to remember your most joyful moments. Pro tip: Trim a mini tree exclusively in ornaments so every branch tells a different story.
