Are You Hungry? Feast Your Eyes On My Christmas Food Ornaments

The tree in the dining room is up and decorated. It is the my “food” tree where I like to put all of my decorations that look like food on it. It still need to place some candy canes on it but for the most part it is finally up and done. :)

And so far the only new ornament I bought this year is the cute little dessert dome with the cupcake in it. Christmas Ornaments 005

I picked it up at Kohl’s way back in October…don’t get me started on why you have to buy Christmas decorations in October! I had to get it then thinking I would never see it again and then I just saw a similar ornament at Pier One a couple of nights ago!

My favorite kind of pie is lemon meringue. And there is my mushroom ornament…

My mushroom was a gift from my friend “M” who last year gave me a set that included a carrot, an onion, and a garlic bulb. Beautifully made.

I like the light in this photo. Hard to see but my asparagus with a red ribbon tied around it is hiding in the background.

Hot dog for lunch followed by a slice of cherry pie anyone?

Or would you prefer a hamburger? I saw a an ornament that looked like a submarine sandwich yesterday that I think I have to go back and get in honor of my son. He would be perfectly happy to eat Subway everyday.

And you know the girl with the “Pickles and Cheese” blog has to have a “pickle”. But can you believe I still haven’t found a “cheese” ornament that I like yet?

Now I know this isn’t a “food” ornament but I wanted to show you another ornament I just finished making for my son. I came across another vintage photo that I loved…this one has a bunch of boys in their itchy wool 1920’s bathing suits looking like tough guys. I just had to personalize it with my son and his buddies. Boys could care less about ornaments for the tree but this one actually made him smile!

Love it!

How cute! Now I will be noticing all the food ornaments in the stores. I love the cupcake dome.

Wendy said...

I love this tree!! What a great idea and your cupcake on the cake stand is just too cute!

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

A food-themed tree! How clever. I love it!

Those are darling!
I have a weird fake food fetish, so those ornies are right up my alley.
Love your blog!

My kids would love the food ornaments! We do have a pickle on our tree.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

So the search is on for a wedge of cheese ornament? : ) Love the food themed trees in a dining room or kitchen!

Karen said...

The domed cupcake is perfect for this year, since you made a similar cake dome. I buy the kids ornaments based on one of their interests or events of that year. Then I date them. When they get a place of their own, they'll have a 'starter set'.

I don't think I've paid attention to food ornaments before but they are really cute! My fave is the cupcake. So cute. So shiny. Asparagus ornaments??? Wow! I guess they don't have spaghetti? {I'm watching Elf and Will Farrell is pouring syrup on the spaghetti...that's why I was thinking of it.}

ha! This is so cute! I love the hot dog... love your theme :)

I have never noticed food ornaments before...but you seem to have acquired an entire tree full of them. Amazing!
