Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Club Event

Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Club Event Pieces

There were many things to see and do at the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Club Event in Kansas City last weekend. There were 12 Hallmark ornaments that you could buy if you attended the Event, as well as a collector’s pin. Hallmark also provided each attendee with two additional ornaments in their registration bag. These two were A Snowman’s Joyful Job and Forty Years of Memories.

There were the usual sessions for having Hallmark ornaments signed by your favorite artists as well as games and seminars. There are always long lines for the popular games such as bingo where you can win past years ornaments. One of the ladies sitting next to us won twice – she was really enjoying herself.

One of the more informative sessions of the weekend was a Sneak Peak at ornaments from the 2014 Hallmark Ornament line. We do not have pictures available, but we can describe some of them for you. The Beauty of Birds ornament will be #10 and it is a hummingbird. Snowtop Lodge is also #10 and will be a baker with a fabric Chef’s hat and apron. The other ornament which will hit #10 in 2014 is Fairy Messengers and it will be a daffodil.

A few other series were also highlighted, Noelville #9 will be a fire station and Cookie Cutter Christmas #3 will be a mouse caroler ringing a bell at a door inside a bell shaped cookie. And, one last one was Once Upon a Christmas #4 which will be Santa feeding Dasher at his stall door telling him to eat well for the big night ahead.

The Christmas Commemorative Hallmark ornament listed in the Dream Book was also shown at this session and is a red glass ball inscribed with the year 2013. This will be released in December. We will pass along more information as it becomes available. Shop The Ornament Shop for all you Hallmark Christmas Ornaments.
