Christmas Tree

Our kitchen is just like everyone else’s. It’s where we spend the most time during the holidays.

When I found this beautiful aqua/turquoise ice cream churn, I knew what I was going to do with it.

Put a tree in it! 

Wooden Ice Cream Churn

I put a bucket inside the bucket to help secure the tree.  Several limbs were trimmed off the bottom.  Actually a few too many got cut and I had to just stick them back in.  There were some funny things said around the tree last night.  Barry even suggested that he’d buy another tree. These are the moments I should video!

Some of the ornaments that I used:


Despite all the drama, the tree ended up looking pretty good 😉

The meals will be a little more festive, thanks to my ice cream churn.

    Debbie, for a split second I had thought about putting a tree in my turquoise ice cream churn that I bought this summer, but since I had a fake tree it wouldn’t fit. Great minds think alike. Love those blue Shiny Brites. I always love the ones with writing on them.

    Debbie your tree is gorgeous. The colors are beautiful and I love how you shared all the ornaments individually. Perfect if someone wants to duplicate the look. It’s really so pretty!!!!

    what a fabulous idea and lucky for me i have an ice cream churn almost identical to yours that i morphed into a lamp base in my sunroom….however i could easily remove the “parts” and use it for a tree next year (LOL)!

    seriously, it looks great…you get an A+!

    How pretty is that and how come I never think of things like this? I have two ice cream buckets, but one is now full of snow because I used it outdoors with plants. Pinning that cute tree to remind me next year.

    I want to come hang out in your kitchen, Debbie! So festive and orderly — mine is like a bomb went off right now! Too many teenagers and college kids in the midst of finals and Christmas prep! Sigh… Someday I’ll miss it I know. 😉

    Your tree is lovely, Debbie! Very cute!

    I just put up my tree today; we have a fake tree – I always end up being so busy this time of year that I don’t want to have to fuss with looking for a tree and bringing one home, so the fake tree it is. I’m okay with that, though.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Such a great idea, Debbie! I love your ice cream churn and what a fun and fabulous base for your beautiful tree! You’re always thinking outside of the box! Your ornaments are beautiful, as is the rest of your *holiday* room (love your table centerpiece)! Merry Christmas!
