Candy Cane Christmas

I know, I know you're expecting Day 1 of Basically Christmas Cards and I promise they are coming, but I'm just so excited about how this is turning out! I'm in charge of our ward Christmas party for about 250 people and this is essentially the color theme and part of the display. (such fun because I got to pick!) This is in particular for the dessert table. Isn't it cute? The tin is from the $1 Spot at Target. I used rub-ons and loads of miscellaneous ribbon, straight pins, tacky glue, starlight red & white mints, spray adhesive and some "snow!"

Bet you want to lick your monitor!

oh my gosh I LOVE this! I WANT to make these for my Christmas Party! Can you share the directions? PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE? Like are the peppermints on the little topiary? The ribbons are fantastic - what are they tied around? I LOVE it!

Rachele--like you need any talent dust from me!!! I seriously wish I was in your ward (we are in a little branch in the middle of nowhere--our Stake building is 100 miles away!!)--the decorations are going to be delightful (or star light mint-ful!)! LOVE the topiary. Also wish I had a Target closer than 325 miles away--sometimes it really stinks living in the toolies! The jars filled with mints is very festive, too.

I think if we lived close to one another it would be hazardous for someone--because we would have WAY too much fun.

Hey Rachele, I am missing my Rachele fix these days. Is everything ok? I hope you had some great holidays and are ok.
