All dressed up

Proper top hats and red bow ties have these gentlemen in a festive mood. They look like they might be singing. I’m trying to figure out why the ones with the champagne bottle and the umbrella have bow ties while the one with the peppermint stick does not. I find beaks, bells, skis and other wooden pieces all the time and glue them back on, but I don’t remember ever seeing a loose bow tie anywhere. A lot of times, pieces are missing before the ornaments are bought. Sometimes I don’t notice the missing parts at the time, but even when I do, it doesn’t stop me from buying the ornament.
