Sweet Christmas

I have alot of candy ornaments which is fun since I can always focus on getting one type of ornament theme (and usually get fun ones as gifts), but I also mix in my favorite blown glass ones that I get. I feel like I have noticed more and more candy themed Christmas items now. I still need to get around to finishing my tree and then I can post some pictures, but in the meantime, here are candy themed inspirations from tree decor to wreaths and my last year's decor.

Here was my candy decor on my table runner for 2010 Christmas morning brunch

My Christmas tree from 2010

Close-up of my tree last year. You can see a few of my candy ornaments: sugared gumdrop garland, ribbon, candy cane, gumdrop, etc ornaments. There is even an ornament which is a 4 piece of boxed chocolates.

One of my grandmother's handmade Christmas trees which has some candy on it since it's a Valentine's/love themed tree.

Candy topiaries in varying sizes can be made with mints, candy canes, cinnamon dots, apple rings, etc. Last year I made the peppermint topiary and let me tell you with all those peppermints, it's heavy!
