Make room on the Christmas tree for these beautiful ornaments that show your hometown pride.

Kansas City is home to the center of the universe for Chistmas ornaments – Hallmark and Halls both build their namesake on ornaments that are everything from elegant and delicate, to kitschy and humorous. No Christmas would be complete without a walk-through of the ornament section of Halls featuring shelves and bucketfuls of glittering designs.

Having said that, along with our favorites available at Halls, there are some more beautiful Kansas City ornaments available from other companies and groups. Here are our five recommendations.
