The Best Way to Showcase Your Halloween Hallmark Ornaments

With all this talk about Hallmark Halloween Ornaments, most people use ornaments to decorate their Christmas tree, there are others who don’t want to make Hallmark ornaments only about the Christmas holiday. If you are someone who loves Halloween, why not show off your Halloween spirit by displaying some of the coolest, creepiest, and downright ghoulie, Hallmark ornaments that trick or treaters will get a kick out of. Hallmark ornaments aren’t just for Christmas. They are excellent year round, especially at Halloween.

Where to Hang Your Halloween Hallmark Ornaments

If you are having a hard time figuring out where to display your ornaments, the best place to showcase them is in your entryway. Put up a string over your front door to hang your most prized Halloween Hallmark ornaments so that people see them right away. The ornaments will look super festive, and they’ll be there for everyone to see when they enter. Trick or treaters will also be excited by the fun surprise of different colors, characters, and intricate scenes that are the signature of Halloween Hallmark ornaments.

Around the Front Porch

If you really want to go all-out, hang your Halloween Hallmark ornaments on the front porch awning or even on the railing. As long as they are sheltered from inclement weather, you can hang them outdoors for curbside onlookers to see. If you are concerned about leaving them outdoors, hang them from a plant and bring them outdoors when it is nice and move them easily indoors when it isn’t. 

Around Your Halloween Party Table

If you are having a Halloween party, the perfect way to showcase your Hallmark Halloween ornaments is to have them hanging as a decorative centerpiece to your buffet. They not only make the room more festive, but they are also an excellent conversation piece. Stick with one Halloween theme to make it a themed party, or throw all sorts of characters together to make it a mish-mash of Halloween fun. Have a Charlie Brown themed pumpkin patch party, or make it Wizard of Oz. That’s the fun of Halloween Hallmark ornaments; there are hundreds to choose from.

They Also Make Great Hostess Gifts

If you are headed out to a Halloween party, take a Halloween Hallmark ornament as a hostess gift. It is the gift that keeps giving year after year. In fact, make it your “thing” to be the one who gets other people collecting. Every year they will know what to expect from you, in a good way.

Hallmark ornaments are not just for Christmas. If you’re one who doesn’t want to wait for the holidays to hang your ornaments, show off your Halloween spirit. Start collecting all your favorite characters at Hallmark Ornaments today!

Hope this helps some of you with your Halloween decorating! Until next time!

The Joy of Holiday Lights!

Happy Thursday to you all! The elves and I are hard at work here at The Ornament Factory! Lots of orders going out from new 2018 Hallmark October Ornament release. Have you ordered you ordered yours yet?

As the other elves and I get ready for Halloween it got me thinking about what my favorite part of Halloween is. I feel like my favorite part of every holiday has changed as I have gotten older. For Halloween it use to be the candy, what kid does not love candy? Reese’s Cups to be exact! Then it was getting dressed up. It was fun planning what to be and if I was going to get dressed up with my friends. Now, I would say it is the Halloween lights. Putting up lights for Halloween is a newer thing to do I feel. I have always been a big fan of Christmas lights so it makes sense that I would love Halloween lights too. Driving through our neighborhood last night and seeing all the lights with some of the other elves was fun. Jackson was so excited and pointing out the different houses with lights on them.  Don’t get me wrong, I am still looking forward to the candy and dressing up for Halloween but the lights are beautiful and fun to look at.

We put up our Halloween lights this past weekend. Jackson the elf was so excited! There are ghosts flying around on the garage door and spiders crawling up the house. Finishing it off are the two cute pumpkins glowing orange on the front porch. Over at Brandon the elf’s house he has these two huge inflatables in the front yard that look amazing! It is so much fun doing all of these fun traditions, new and old, for the holidays.

Since I am on the topic of Halloween, have you gotten your Halloween ornaments yet? My tree us up and looking beautiful. It has a lot of lights on it too. I went with white and orange lights this year. I did find some really pretty purple ones. Maybe I will do those next year or on one of my Christmas trees that’s beautifully decorated with my Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments.

Here is one of my favorite Hallmark Halloween ornaments! The Master is one of the Hallmark Keepsake ornaments for your Halloween tree that we have in stock! Check out what other Hallmark Halloween ornaments we have in stock for you!

That’s all from me for now! Have a great day!

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles….

Who doesn’t have a happy memories of playing with or watching a loved one play with a toy that was a plane, train, or automobile? Hallmark Ornaments has beautiful ornaments to help us remember those moments.

I have many family members who love cars, that is where I get my love for them from. My uncle has a tree of just car ornaments that he puts up every year. My aunt looks forward to getting him new ones to add to his tree every year. This year is no different! The 2018 Hallmark Ornaments have several cars that will make any car lover happy.

An ornament that I know he will love is the 1968 Chevrolet Nova SS, Classic American Cars #28 .

Another one I know he would appreciate on his tree is 2018 1954 Mercury M-100, All-American Trucks #24 .

Superheros

Jackson the elf here! One of my favorite toys these days are my superhero ones. For my birthday I received a superhero cap and superhero masks. Pretending to be a superhero is so much fun! My favorite one is Ironman! That is what I am going to dress up as for Halloween. My little brother, little Daniel the elf, is going to be the Hulk. I call him the mean green Hulk!

While working at The Ornament Factory, I remembered that Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments made some super hero ornaments so I had to look and see if they had my favorite one. We do have it! I was so excited to find Ironman!

hallmark_2008_iron_man.jpgThis is my new favorite Hallmark Ornament and it will be a wonderful addition to one of my Christmas trees. After I found Ironman I had to look for the Hulk. I was surprised at how many years Hallmark Ornaments has made a different Hulk. I picked the one I liked the best out to add to one of my Christmas trees this year. Hulk will go right near Ironman.

1997_incredible_hulk.jpg I had to show little Daniel the Hulk after I found him. He was so excited! We are going to have a lot of fun this year dressing up as these superheros for Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, have you ordered your Hallmark Keepsake Halloween Ornaments for your tree? There is still time to order and have them in time to put them up on your Halloween tree.
