Laura On: Premiering 2017 Ornament Designs
It’s such a fun time of year – when we share all of the new ornament designs during this week’s Ornament Premiere event. This year we’ve been super busy and are premiering more than 100 new designs. It always amazes me that it takes more than 18 months of planning and designing to get them ready for this week - it’s been a hard secret to keep!
A few of my favorites that I’m particularly excited about:
- Topping my list are these Boy and Girl Silhouette Ornaments. I’ve always loved the classic look of silhouette artwork, and Kyle designed them for me after many years “hinting” at what a great addition these would be to the line. Don’t you think so?
- The line grew with the addition of new milestones and memories. Some of my favorites are “Our Sweet Home,” “New Job,” and a Neutral Cross Ornament, perfect for christenings or First Communions. Also, the “I Made It!” Ornament is fun and I can think of lots of ways to gift this ornament.
- We’ve also designed a brand new shape of an ornament, featured in our “Spirits” Collection. I was inspired to create this new shape by my current obsession of hunting and collecting vintage ornaments of all types. They are in short supply, thus I had to create my own, taking a vintage shape and updating it with a modernized design. I’m planning on displaying these in fun new ways around my home.
