On the second day of Christmas... I share with you a tree!
My mom had this brilliant idea of doing a chef-themed tree for the kitchen island. AND I LOVE IT! We stuck mainly with German chef ornaments... made either by Ulbricht or Steinbach. I'm sure you've seen some of these cute little wooden ornaments on your shopping adventures at Homegoods or Tuesday Mornings!
Underneath the tree sits some chef nutcrackers and smokers!
I especially love the tiny pig chef above.. he's actually a smoker and when you use him the smoke puffs out of his nose!
Some of my favorites ornaments include the mouse chef, who I've named Remy, after the tiny mouse in the Disney movie Ratatouille.
I don't have a tree topper... I had put a chef hat on the tree but didn't like how it looked. Guess I'll have to keep shopping...
I like the natural wooden ornament below and the red gingerbread house too!
Initially we were going to mix up the ornaments with food themed... but then when we got all of these chefs on the tree we thought, oh! We're sticking with the chefs. I *may* have hidden a cute little pink macaron ornament in the tree. I saw it and couldn't help myself.
I had never done any themed trees before, but my Mother-in-Law has all of these cute themed trees all over her house and I just loved it... so the chef tree was born! Plus, it's an excuse to put up more Christmas trees. This year I have FOUR. I'll be sharing them with you one by one...
