About Chesapeake Bay Christmas Co.

    Chesapeake Bay Christmas Company began in 1995 as a small home-based business in New Kent County, Virginia, a quaint rural haven nestled between tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Our love for and proximity to its waters provides us with many of our resources and much of our inspiration.

    Our love and appreciation for the water, and especially for our own magnificent bay, inspired us to craft hand-painted Christmas ornaments on regional shells, oysters, crabs and scallops.   

Today we lovingly create nearly 200 hand-painted ornament designs, as well as our famous hand-crafted Chesapeake Bay Santas, many of which are up to 17" high, adorned with blue crabs, regional birds, fish, net, shells, starfish and sea horses.    
    Each of our impressive Santa dolls - we introduce one or more new themed Santas a year -- is one of a kind, a most unique collectible.

   Bring a little bit of the bay into your Christmas and into your lives. Most of our delightful nautical-themed decorations will complement any coastal decor, or just remind you of wonderful times along the shore....they also make highly prized and unique gifts and are suitable for display year-round!

     Artist Lynn McPherson and her talented, dedicated team may be seen at most of the Tidewater region's well-known festivals and events. Be sure to stop and say hello, share your stories of life around the Bay, and catch the Spirit of Chesapeake Bay Christmas all year round!
