In case you haven’t had enough sugar yet this Christmas season I thought I’d give you a little more.
Maybe you’re like me and haven’t pulled the goodies out yet. The real ones that is.
Every year I get together with my girls and dil’s to make candy. This year we had a hard time finding a time that everyone could come. There ended up only being my middle daughter, Karrah and I for most of the day. Later that afternoon our dil, Samantha came and helped.
I had to put the candy up until Christmas Eve when we all fill containers and everyone takes goodies home. I knew that if I didn’t nibbling would be going on and there might not be anything left. lol!
I shared a lot of my candy decorations for the ‘Sugar and Spice’ Creating Christmas party. Here’s some of what I haven’t shown.
I had planned on doing my ‘candy’ tree down in the basement this year. Because Kylee and Dustin are staying with us for a while I let them decorate their tree instead. I filled my large lantern with peppermint balls and gumdrops that would normally have been on the tree.
Little chalkboards tell what sweets are to be found. The top of my rustic cabinet has more peppermints, gingerbread stars, and a cute little gingerbread boy.
I love mixing in some of my vintage Christmas items. A red and white enamel pot on an old scale and a sifter are perfect for whipping up something sweet!
I draped a simple strip quilt on the cabinet door and the gingerbread girl I made years ago stands on my red stool. I made four of those girls that year. The other three were gifts.
The cabinet is overflowing with goodies and my gingerbread men.
Another sweet gingerbread man holding a candy cane.
On Dec. 1st Kylee had a ‘Christmas Kick-Off’ party with some of her friends. They made gingerbread houses. This is the one her and Dustin made.
Close ups of the shelves.
Isn’t this elf on the shelf candy jar too funny? I found it at an estate sale last year. I had to bring it home!
I decorated my French mug rack with some of my fun ornaments and pretty ribbons.
I kept the table decor simple so that they didn’t have to move things when they wanted to use the table. I did add a newly found gingerbread man coming out of a cupcake.
I found these sweet little cherry suckers at T.J. Maxx.
My snowman drink dispenser is ready for a tasty bit of hot chocolate.
He’s close to the hot chocolate bar. I’ve shown it before, but in case you forgot. Hee-hee!
Wishing you all a very ‘SWEET’ Christmas and a New Year full of ‘SPICE’!
