Candy Land

 Welcome to Monday!! I hope it's the start of a sweet week for everyone. Mine is going to be busy, busy, busy....so I'm looking for things that will make me smile. Simple things. Like these adorable ideas  inspired by the iconic candy of the season....the candy cane!
Love this for a holiday party!
 A napkin ring/place setting or tied on a present...easy, inexpensive but so impactful!

Anyone craving one of those peppermint mochas from Starbucks about now?!

Growing up we placed candy canes on our Christmas tree and got to eat one while opening presents. Sweet memories....

What are the holidays without candycanes? I use them on everything as adornments for presents to my tree to having little jars or containers of them throughout the house.....they are so festive and a sure sign that Christmas is near! Wishing you a great Monday.

So pretty! I love candy canes and red and white. On my to do list this year is to bake some peppermint shortbread cookies. Yum!

Hope you have can have some fun today in all your busy-ness. Here's to a sweet week! XOXO

PS- Loved your comment yesterday about tree decorating - I don't think there is such a thing as "too much." And we have quite the Christopher Radko collection, too, from my parents.

Now I have Dean Martin's "Marshmallow Winter" stuck in my head! LOL!
It's almost 70 degrees in Chicago. Christmas looks out of place right now.

These is so sweet Elizabeth and I have candy canes on my blog too! I group them in containers, place them on gifts, and put them on our tree. When little ones come over I always enjoy seeing them grab a candy cane off the tree :) Have fun today!

Candycanes have always been a huge favorite for me! We actually hand them out in our shop this time of year! Love all of your wonderful ideas!

We were making salted chocolate caramels this weekend and ate to our heart's content (our hips are crying Uncle though!) A peppermint latte sounds like just the right remedy.

Oh it's such a busy time of year, but a little peppermint latte from Starbucks is a perfect pick me up! Just love using peppermints on packages tied with ribbon - Happy Monday ~

I always have too many candy canes after trips to the bank, post office, etc.....always a bowl of them sitting around this time of year :) Haven't tried the Starbucks drink, yet. Sounds yummy!

Yesterday, I baked cookies and brought bags that I had tied with red and white ribbon and a sprig of holly - but a peppermint candy cane would have been fun too.
You always have such pretty holiday tips.
