My parents did not celebrate Christmas when I was little.
So nope, never seen a gumdrop tree before.
It's pretty cute! :-)

We didn't have a gumdrop tree but we always had gumdrops. I still love them. I used to have an Aunt that used to make a cake with cut up gumdrops or sometimes she used those candy orange slices. It was so.....good.
Have a wonderful evening.

That's so cute! I'm afraid my hubby would eat the tree though! He loves those spice drops!

Lydia

My Grandmother had a gumdrop tree every year. It makes me think of her. :)

Kelli

I was looking through some of your old posts and it was fun to see your Holly Christmas dishes. I have a set of 10 found at a thrift store and a year later more at Goodwill. The second find had markings on the back so I could research them online, but it is much more find to discover them thrifting. Love your blog!

Monica Epperson

Hi Tina,
Yes of course my Mom always had our gum drop tree out each year. Ours was green and my sister and I always got to decorate it each year. My mom and sister are now decorating the gum drop tree in Heaven. Thanks for the memory!

Your Hoosier Friend,
Monica

nicki

I had one when I was little and then found one when my children were little.
A few years ago my husband broke mine while stealing gum drops! I just today ordered a new one. My grown children missed having it and so did I.

Theresa@TakeASentimental Journey

Now you have me wanting a gum drop. I like the red ones LOL .

No-but sure do remember them. Thanks for sharing the good times with us.
Blessed!

Cathy

Yes! We had one too! I remember helping to put the little gum drops on, but we weren't allowed to eat them til Christmas and on top of that it was kept in the formal living room where we weren't allowed without special permission--however a few here and there always disappeared. I'm sure it was the dog. hehehe! Thanks for such a wonderful memory! Merry Christmas!

Cathy :)

Diane

Yes, we had one in our house too when growing up! May I ask where you found one one to buy? I would love to be able get my hands on one again! Seems to me ours came out at Valentine's Day and Easter too!

THANK YOU FOR STIRRING UP THE PRECIOUS MEMORIES.

Oh Tina! This brought back memories!

When I was a kid, my Mom and Grandma made these every year, except they used the green foam tree shaped cones!

One year we returned from an evening church service to find that our dog had eaten a Christmas treat - yes, the gumdrop tree, including much of the foam and toothpicks!

He survived but was in the doghouse (literally) with my Mom!

--deb v  from Chesterton, Indiana

Hi Tina,
Yes, we had one growing up in Northwest Indiana; however our branches were always empty! I need to go on a hunt in Mom's attic now! Another fond memory--Grandma's Candy Wreath hanging on the door, scissors attached with red ribbon to cut the candies from the wreath--(did you have one?)WONDERFUL CHILDHOOD CHRISTMAS MEMORIES thanks for bringing them ALL back!

cherie mathews

It was definitely a tradition in our family! But, I didn't like the purple ones - YUK! Wonder what Mom ever did with that cute thing!

Maryjane

Tina, your gumdrop tree is adorable! No, I do not have one and now on the hunt! To cute!

Hugs,

Terri Steffes

I just decorated my gumtree up last night. I couldn't find the small gumdrops so I used extra large ones... and it is so cute!

Christina

Oh my the memories. My mom had that same one and she had it out only two years, but that is a favorite memory from childhood.

I think I'm going to get a styrofoam cone and use toothpicks and stick them on it for my kids to enjoy this year. It would be great to find one like yours though.

that girl

Never saw one of these before! I don't think it would last long in our house, YUM.

suzanne davenport

Oh my gosh! I remember the gumdrop trees! My grandmother always had one and she also made delicious gumdrop cookies. AWWWW the memories!
suzanne

amcbride

Yes! We had a gumdrop tree just like that! I love that and I forgot abut my mom's tree! Where did you get that? Your site is such a blessing! Merry Christmas!!

Joyzette Fields

I'm excited about finding a decorating soul mate, didn't know anyone would ever have an old gumdrop tree they still use, I have an antique one that was my great Aunts' I always use red and green drops but think that the different colored ones will be great for children's centerpiece for parties and interest for my children's church children called Kreation Kids. Joy in Ky.

Storm

This is so darn cute. Yes, this does bring back memories. I need to get one of those trees.

Lainee

Kindred spirits, I'm sure! One of my favorite family traditions too

Sharon Williams

Would like infor to purchase gumdrop tree.
Thank you very much.

Bonnie

Yes, we always had a gumdrop tree at Christmas. I think it may have originated in Italy. Does anybody know for sure?

Manford Jones

You can buy the gumdrop tree from The Walter Drake Company on the net.

Marilyn Sanders

Yes my grandmother had a gumdrop tree for Christmas when I was a child; so I had three for my kids; now that I have grands they all are broken, and I am in search for more trees.

Lulúmx

Que linda idea!!!!! te quedo hermoso!!! Gracias por compartirla

J. W. Jones

Hi! Although she stopped having a Christmas tree, my grandmother ALWAYS had a gum-drop tree at Christmas and I loved the spice ones too! When she passed away, we came across her little tree folded up and tucked neatly in the original box. It still looks as good as it did 40+ years ago, but I didn't want to risk breaking it at it's age, so I searched and searched for the place to purchase them.... I found them for $17.99 at www.geoffre.net...with shipping I think the total was around $20-$22. I LOVE MINE...and not a bad price for such a great memory my children can share just as I shared mine!

Judy I.

Does anyone know where I can get one of the plastic gumdrop trees?

Montie Moore

I rememeber having gumdrop trees make from mock orange thorn bushes. I was raised in north west Louisiana and we always looked forward to making these trees and giving them as gifts. Does anyone know the history are story of the gumdrop tree? I remember seeing and reading it once, but cannot find any information on them.

Laura Amen-Kroeger

My grandmother used to have a gumdrop tree set up for Christmas and now that I am a mother, I am reflecting on precious Christmas' past. This is a sweet tradition I plan to renew and carry forward within our family.

Gregory Line

I am looking for plastic gumdrop trees. Do you have any and if so how much are they. Thanks Gregory Line
