Welcome to Day 29!
imagine if the shelves shown in yesterday's post were in a kitchen, instead of in my office.
you could create a quick little display tout de suite*
just by raiding the kitchen cabinets & drawers:
cake pans, cupcake wrappers & box, cookie cutters, and a few edible goodies
become decor items! easy. or, rather...
[*tout de suite ]
which is one of the most common expressions in the French language,
and is just one of several ways to say "right away, immediately."
now what if you grabbed a little bit more from the kitchen,
and pulled together a candy bar beneath those shelves?
it might look a lil' something like this:
the best part?
the candy AND darling 'cookies on a stick' ALL came from the dollar store
and the glass vases & candleholders came from thrift shops!
This is a simple, easy idea for a family-time Valentine's Day dessert
that your kids are sure to love
* leftover Christmas candycanes fit the color scheme and fill up a huge vase
* smaller lidded jars hold cheap but cute dollar store candies,
and a tiny butter dome holds some jellied fruits wrapped in red & white wrappers
* decorated cookies-on-a-stick stand in a cup lined with doilies
* dotted wrapping paper forms the base of the decor
* an overturned custard dish acts as a pedestal for a cupcake
[and a flattened cupcake paper forms a colorful 'saucer' beneath it]
* small red glass heart plates stand inside raised candleholders, secured with hard wrapped candies
