Deviled Egg Ornament

Old World Christmas Store

If there’s one thing that Southerners love more during the holiday season than decorating the Christmas tree, it’s food. Our festivities revolve around sausage balls, casseroles, and cookies—and we wouldn’t have it any other way. For many, love for Southern food runs deep, and it can be shown in more ways than just on the table. Perhaps on the Christmas tree, too? 

A fun way to refresh your tree is to find new ornaments, and none feel more fitting for a Southern Christmas than an ornament inspired by one of your favorite foods. Not only will they add a touch of whimsy to your own tree, but they make the perfect gift for all of your holiday swaps. From humorous sticks of butter to deviled eggs that look almost good enough to eat, these ornaments are ready for the front of the Christmas tree.
