Food Christmas Ornaments

So I got a catalog in the mail from Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. In it, they had...get this...a garlic bulb Christmas ornament. Check it out:

Isn't it cool? I just had to have it!! They also had hot dog ornaments, pizza slice ornaments, etc. The selection of ornaments for food lovers like us was quite impressive!

I also have an ice cream cone, a chianti bottle, a pear, and a cluster of grapes. Does anybody else have food-related ornaments for their holiday decor?

    That's cool, meowzart! I found their website and ordered a catalog.

    http://www.bronners.com/bcw/home.nsf/public/home_page.htm

    (My wife would NEVER let me put that "slice of pizza" ornament on our tree. )

    We currently have gingerbread men, cherries, and a margarita. Also have several strings of "chili lights". I LOVE those! I need to get a pickle, because I've read that traditionally brings good luck. (I need all I can get.)

    I'll have to hide it in the center of the tree (my wife is an absolute tyrant!), along with my ornament replica of Dale Jarrett's #88 Thunderbird (from back when Ford raced that model).

    I really enjoyed reading this as when we were at Epcot last year with our German au pair, we went into the gift shop at Germany and saw these pickle ornaments with the story that they mean good luck. I asked our au pair about it and she had never heard of this! So I did not buy it. If a pickle is not going to bring me good luck, I would rather not hang it on our Christmas tree........LOL

    And here I thought it WAS a German thing! Thanks for the advice.

    My wife will be very pleased that I won't try to hang a pickle on the tree!

    Our tradition is to hide the pickle, no jokes now, on the tree. It brings the person who finds it luck.

    The story I've always heard about the pickle is that it should be well hidden on the tree & the first to find it gets an extra gift. I've had my pickle for 20 or more years. Don't remember where I bought it just where I was living at the time. Other than the pickle I only have candy canes & little pieces of glass that look like hard candies. I have a little mallet for crabs, does that count??

    Of course it counts............that is the best Christmas ornament that one can have.......just looking at it will make you happy remembering all the crabs that you have cracked. By the way, do you remember where you purchased it? I must have one.

    I have had that pickle ornament for years, and never knew there was any mythology surrounding it. This website is so educational!

    I've had it a few years & now a days I suffer from CRS. So I don't want to swear to it but I think I got it at the Christmas store in Annapolis. They're the same people that have the shop in OC.

    Are they still in business? The Annapolis one? That's where that devastating fire was in the Historic District.

    We have a banana, a pickle, and a strawberry. At least that's all I can remember right now. A couple weeks before Christmas, I could probably be more precise, but I ain't dragging all that stuff out and unpacking it just to count food ornaments. lol

    When I first read this topic, I thought you meant edible ornaments. My mom used to make cookie-cutter cookies with holes in the top, frosted beautifully, with edible glitter on them, and hang them on the tree. One year my crazy aunt came and ate all of them off the tree in an hour. lol

    I thought you were talking edible ornaments too. I really like to string popcorn and cranberries for the tree. The birds love this when we take the tree out after the holidays. We used to do the gingerbread men and women--they were fun and you can get real creative.
    Liketoeat--I haven't heard anyone call the wishbone a pullybone for ages!Thanks for that swell memory. All the cooks in my family cut their own birds (usually rung their necks,too) and cut the breast bone this way.

    lamertz, we used to make the popcorn and cranberry tree decorations as a grade school Christmas project for our tree at school and then for each kid to take home. Not sure how many of those decorations ever successfully completed the journey from the school house to the home. Also when I was a kid we had nothing but pullybones; I never heard the term wishbone till I was grown and away from home. We all raised, killed, cleaned, and cut up our chickens back then. What used to really provoke me as a big strapling teenager was fact I just could not get that chicken's neck run off, no matter how long and how hard I tried, but there would be my little 98 lb. grandmother giving that chicken's neck a quarter turn with her left hand and the job was done! Also, as a little kid I liked to go to my grandmother's to eat fried chicken because her chickens had pullybones and ours didn't (and as a kid I couldn't understand that she and my mother cut up their chickens differently; I thought each was raising different kinds of chickens and I liked grandmother's the best). All good memories!

    Out trying to get into the Christms Spirit today. I went into a local Garden center & came up with two more ornaments. A blown glass Chocolat Bon-bon in a foil cup and a gumdrop santa, made out of plastic red gumdrops with twizzler legs & arms! They had the garlic head, many different fruits, wine bottles & beer stein & even a martini glass w/olive

    I have two potato ornaments and a little Airstream trailer. Last year I made a popcorn string but Kitty-Kitty Meow-Meow yanked the whole thing out. BTW I did not name that cat.
