Choosing a Nativity Set or Figurine for Your Space

A nativity scene will always be welcome as the heart of our holiday decor. This special decoration reverently celebrates Jesus’ birth and keeps us mindful of the true meaning of Christmas. When the holiday season starts to feel hectic, the nativity set will be there to inspire quiet moments of reflection. No matter the amount of decorating space you have, you can find a nativity to fit.

Consider a miniature nativity set if you have limited display and storage space. A mini nativity set is great for a small room, an apartment, a bookcase top, or any area where a larger set would be overwhelming. These nativity sets are no less captivating for their smaller size. The Foundations™ Mini Nativity Set features a stable and eight figurines, all of which are under 7.5”H. Designed for Enesco® by artist Karen Hahn, this nativity set reflects a delicate beauty with its pastel colors and crystal accents.

Another solution to limited tabletop space is to display a single figurine instead of a grouped set. A Holy Family figurine or nativity sculpture depicts the Christmas miracle in one compact tabletop decoration. Designed by Karen Hahn, the Holy Family Figurine features Mary and Joseph gazing at the baby Jesus in tender adoration. Raised vine motifs and small crystals enhance this sweet, detailed piece from Foundations™ by Enesco®.

Larger nativity sets will be at home on a display table, beneath your Christmas tree, or atop the mantel. Keep the stable size, measurement of the largest figurine, and number of pieces in mind as you plan where to place your nativity set. A tall set may need more space than the area beneath your tree can provide. The Heirloom Nativity Set from the Joseph’s Studio® Collection by Roman, Inc. has a traditional appearance that will remind you of a family keepsake. This 12-piece set consists of a 19”W stable and 11 figurines; however, many of the pieces can be purchased separately to create a display that best suits your space. These detailed nativity figurines are beautifully handpainted.
