    I have booked a booth come Dec. 4-5th. THis is my first one and a great opportunity for my business.:chef: One thing is troubling me, though. It is manditory that I assemble a Christmas tree designed with some of my company's products to put next to my booth! It must be between 5'-8' and have lights. I am finding it a difficult task to figure out how to hang cookware on a tree...:yuck: SHEESH! DIdn't know it would be so much work to network! lol Any ideas? I'm desperate! :(I am also desperate for ideas on C+C gift sets.

    HEEEEEELLLPPP!:cry:

    dazed and confused,

    Nikki

    Tie ribbons around the creative cookie cutters and hang them; do the same with some chef's tools and other lighter items. You could put the cookware in partially opened boxes underneath the tree, i.e., wrap an open top box put pretty tissue paper in and display the cookware on top of it.

    I'll try to think of some other ideas but I'm sure others will post as well. :)

    I decorated a 4' tree with the creative cutters tied with ribbon, twixit clips attached to branch tips, small snowflake ornaments, business cards, free cooking show cards. I used the striped towels for the tree skirt. You can also tie on ribbons, small bamboo spoons, recipe cards, and other lighter products. You can place larger products under tree with ribbons (like presents).

    These would make great ornaments:

    Mini Whipper
    Mini Whisk
    Mini Serving Spatula
    Citrus Peeler

    I have done this with my booths that I set up for the holidays. I use a 3' tree and put the kids chefs hat on top and the apron tied around the front of the tree. It has white lights on it and then I put a recipe card in one pocket and a couple of tools in the other pocket. Then I take the smaller tools and tie ribbon around them and hang them on the tree. I take recipe cards and stick them in ever so often when I don't have a tool hanging. Then for the tree shirt I take the pastry mat and put it around the base of the tree. Hope that this gives you some ideas. Have fun.

    Oh, wow! What a cute idea!!!

    • The 7 pieces of the new stackable measuring cups could be broken down into 7 ornaments, but I'd group them close to one another on the tree.
    • The new measuring spoons
    • Any of the Chef's Tools or Nylon Tools
    • The Digital Thermometer
    • Mix & Chop
    • Chef's Tongs
    • Saute' Tongs
    • Tie a ribbon around the spices & hang them!
    • Any of the bamboo stuff
    • Drink charms
    • Clock/Timer
    • Oven Pads/Oven Mitts
    • Tie ribbons around the Nylon Pan Scrapers & spread them out
    • The pineapple wedger might be light enough
    • The apple wedger
    • Egg slicer
    • crinkle cutter
    • core & more
    • stainless scoops
    • decorator bottle set
    • creative cutters
    • empty flour sugar shaker
    • easy accent decorator
    • pastry blender
    • ice cream dipper
    • baker's roller
    • chef's silicone basting brush
    • Measure-All cups
    • twix it clips
    • egg seperator
    • i-slice
    • striped kitchen towel set
    • any of the 4 classic scrapers
    • any of the whisks
    • can strainers
    • scoop clip
    • jar opener
    • flexible funnels
    • easy clean kitchen brush
    • citrus peeler
    • corn cob knobs

    You could even put a micro cooker upside down on the top as a tree topper - or the oven mitt!

    (I would leave off the peelers from page 32, since they all have sharp edges)

    Put ornaments in the Trifle Bowl & put it at the base

    Dang, now I'm all motivated to go buy stuff & do a small tree on my table this weekend!!! LOL

    You will need to post pictures when you get done. I will put a picture on here after my booth this weekend and I take a better picture. The one picture I have I didn't get close enough for people to see what was on the tree.

    I decorated a full size Christmas tree for my booth today. I just used the basic white lights and silver ribbon. I used recipe cards all over the tree for the Pampered Chef touch. I dug through my many years of recipe cards and found quite a variety of recipes and colors. I just tucked them in the branches all over the tree. I received many compliments on it.
