Candyland Christmas Tablescape
My table is filled with real and faux candies. Giant gumdrops, sugared lollipops and candy canes are scattered about the table. Each plate is topped with real chocolate cake. The chocolate cakes are covered with a thin layer of marshmallow fondant, royal icing snowflakes and silver dragees.
The centerpiece is a real gingerbread house fit for a sugar plum fairy. Frosting ice cream cone trees surround the candyland Christmas gingerbread house. Gumdrops line the roof and pastel chocolate sixlets line the walkway. The fence is made of cookies, gumdrops and gummy bears.
This year I went a little overboard in getting Candyland Christmas decorations for my tree. Instead of purchasing new chargers and plates for this tablescape, I thought to myself, "Why not just use what I already have?"
What helped to tie the theme together was my vintage pink Arcoroc water goblets. They were an Ebay find. The sweet pink swirls match perfectly with the Candyland Christmas theme. I tied a festive glittered pink, blue and green striped ribbon around each one.
I wish I could show you pictures of my husband and toddler who kept coming around asking if I was done taking photos. They wanted to eat the cakes. In fact, when I was constructing the house, my son bit off part of the gingerbread house roof because it was too much of a temptation for him :)
I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season. Please stop by again soon.
