Reed & Barton Blown Glass Ornament Review & Giveaway

Looking for the perfect Christmas present? You can stop looking now because I have found it! Reed & Barton is known for their high quality products and the beautiful Checking It Twice Egg Ornament did not disappoint. I was excited to get the chance to work with Reed & Barton because their reputation really precedes them. Did you know they have been making fine tableware and giftware since 1824? My husband and I started a family tradition where we get Z a Christmas ornament of her very own every year. A lot of time (and money) goes into this special holiday tradition of ours as I search for the *perfect* ornament for her each year. There are no words to express how happy I am that this year we are going to give Z an incredibly special (and beautiful) ornament from Reed & Barton


The ordering process was so easy but it was so hard to choose which one I wanted as all of the blown glass ornaments are absolutely gorgeous but eventually I chose the Checking It Twice Egg Ornament.
  "The Checking It Twice Egg Ornament by Reed & Barton tells the classic Christmas story. Santa, lugging a full bag of toys, has made his list and is checking it twice while Rudolph, decorated in ribbons and jingle bells, patiently awaits the night before Christmas. The darkening sky, accented with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, and glittering snow will soon speed them on their way." 
This ornament is part of the Christmas Reflections Collection of fine handmade European ornaments. It was elegantly packaged for gift-giving and storage and it is accented with glitter and hand-set swarovski elements.


This is seriously one of the most gorgeous ornaments I've ever owned and it's 4.5 inches tall! Pictures dont even do it justice, you really have to see it to believe it. I wanted to get out my Christmas tree and take pictures of it hanging but my husband rolled his eyes at me and told me I have to wait til Thanksgiving before hanging up the tree. Bah humbug! So be on the lookout for next week because I will be updating this post literally as soon as I have my tree up. That's how excited I am for this ornament-- I cant wait to show it off!
