8 Flora & Fauna Christmas Ornaments

by Grace Bonney

Before I jump over to holiday trimmings and other forms of decoration, I wanted to share a few more ornaments that fall into the category of flora & fauna. I love all of the natural ornaments that Emily Thompson did for Terrain this year (above)- they’re such a nice spin on the idea of traditional and modern tree decorations. Whether you’re celebrating your love of greenery or just your family pet, hopefully these ornaments will give you a few more ideas for trimming your holiday tree. xo, grace

Suggested For You


  • These ornaments are spot on for the natural trend that is popping up in a lot of party and event design this season. All of these would look fantastic on a rustic tree, but I like using small ornaments to decorate a holiday dinner table setting; the glass mushrooms would be so cute as a quirky napkin ring. Plus, it would be a fun take home gift for guests.
