First Christmas Ornaments

Collecting First Christmas Ornaments

Bride and Groom First OrnamentSome of my own personal favorite ornaments on my tree, are from those “first” events and celebrations in our lives. After nearly 30 years of marriage, my husband and I have quite a collection of Christmas ornaments that commemorate the big events in our lives, starting with our first Christmas together ornament and including our baby’s first Christmas ornaments.

Each year as I decorate the tree, I recall those days like they were yesterday. It is amazing how fast the years go by. Someday, I will pass our ornament collection down to our children so the memories will live on with them.


Our First Christmas Ornament

Every couple needs their First Christmas Ornament to celebrate their first Christmas together. The holidays take on a whole new meaning when you become “we”. Make your First Christmas Ornament something that you will enjoy placing on the tree together 50 years from now.

The bride and groom ornament featured in the introduction is made by Lenox. It is crafted of ivory china and highlighted with gold accents. The couple is locked in a warm embrace and their faces reflect the love they share. It would make a fabulous “first” Christmas together ornament for a couple and no doubt, a favorite gift to receive.

    Love these ornaments – I’ve collected ornaments over 35 years and have many firsts that go up on our tree every year – it’s a big part of Christmas to look at these every year 🙂

  2. My Christmas ornament collection is very special to me. Since I have lived near the sea in many places over the years, I have a large collection of sea-theme ornaments. Then there were the very precious ones that my daughter received from her godmother every Christmas for her first 10 years, but alas those now are on my daughter’s tree, since she grew up and moved away. My favorite ornament now is a star that says ‘Empty Nester’s 1st Christmas’ we got the first year we had no one home for Christmas. 🙂 Now that I have a new grandson (7 months old this, his first, Christmas), I need to get him his own special ‘first’ ornament. The ones you have featured here are wonderful.

    I love this list of “first” ornaments. Years ago, we added a “personal” ornament to the tree each year. That’s when the kids were still home. I miss that tradition.
