2021 Collection: Star Wars

In celebration of Star Wars Day, May the Fourth, here is a review of the Star Wars ornaments included in the 2021 Keepsake Ornament line.


Star Wars™

An interactive Death Star is born

Keepsake artists are always focused on innovation, so Orville Wilson was excited to work on this Death Star tree topper with new capabilities. “I put a Star Wars tree up every year,” he says, “and I always wished my tree topper could play with the other Storytellers ornaments.” This year, Orville’s wish comes true. “It has a much bigger presence and a lot more detail than the original,” he shares, “It lights up really well and interacts with the new 2021 storytellers ornaments.” Orville gives credit to everyone who collaborated to bring the technology together. “It took a team to make it happen, and I can’t wait to add it to my tree.”

Enterprise Tree Topper,” says keepsake artists Jake Angell, “and it was fun working with other passionate fans of the show from the Keepsake Studio. The original Star Trek was in reruns when I was a kid, so it’s cool to see how the lights and sound turned out on the ship I used to watch on TV.”
