Christmas Ornaments From Bronnerís
You can purchase Christmas ornaments year round in Frankenmuth, Michigan. There is a place there that is open 360 days a year named Bronnerís Christmas Wonderland and it is a magical place. They sell artificial Christmas trees, Christmas lights, Nativity scenes, Christmas ornaments, decorations and collectibles.
Not only does it feel like Christmas every day at Bronnerís, but you can attend the Silent Night Memorial Chapel for meditation. I have seen so many wonderful Christmas ornaments for sale at Bronnerís. It seems like they have something for everyone. I know that I have found more Christmas ornaments there than anywhere.
My sister buys dated Christmas ornaments every year. She likes to pick out one special dated ornament for every year and place it on the tree. She says it helps her remember all of her blessings. I think that her collection of Christmas ornaments is lovely.
I have a few Christmas ornaments that fall into the category of super fragile or incredibly old. I still want to display them, but not on my tree where they could be damaged. I have purchased ornament stands at Bronnerís for these Christmas ornaments. I can display them very nicely in the lighted curio cabinet in my den.
I changed my decorating habits when I started having kids. I used to have very delicate and sedate themes for my tree and mantle, now I decorate with Christmas ornaments that convey a feeling of fun and whimsy. My daughter was with me when I visited Bronnerís when she was four years old. She immediately became enthralled with the pink smiley face ornaments. I was a little taken aback at just how pink these Christmas ornaments were.
I ended up buying those smiley face Christmas ornaments for her. My son thought that it made our tree too girly and he asked me to take him out to Bronnerís to even the tree out a little bit. He found some really odd Christmas ornaments and
I told him that he could pick out twelve individual ornaments or one box of twelve ornaments that were all the same.
The Christmas ornaments that my son picked out that year were all individually chosen. He picked out a slice of pizza because it is his favorite food, a taco, a snowman, a multi color round ball covered in sequins and many other colorful and interesting items. The tree was so sweet that year, because my kids had so much fun deciding how everything would be.
