Candy Land Christmas Tablescape

There aren’t any flowers on this Christmas table, but there is plenty of candy because this tablescape is for the kid in all of us.

The gingerbread house makes its final appearance at the Christmas table.  It’s destiny is dessert.  I hot glued peppermints and blue candy from the party store to styrofoam trees.  Egg cups were used as tree stands for the peppermint trees and mints were used as trunks for the blue candy trees.  Small bowls of chocolates wrapped in red, white and blue foil continue the patriotic theme of this year.

I folded the napkins into a simple pocket fold and a chocolate Santa peeks out of the pocket for each guest.  The blue plates and bowls are from a local Blue Hill pottery shop

 I am hoping my guests will enjoy spending some time around this table enjoying each other’s company.

    I just love the fact that you eat the gingerbread house for dessert! The candy trees are the perfect landscape…er tablescape accessory to the house. :)

    What a perfect idea to use patriotic colors at Christmas! Do you really eat your gingerbread house? The one that I make with my granddaughters always sits out for several days, so I figured it wouldn’t be any good. They’d love it if I let them have at it though! Thank you for linking up to The Better Late Than Never Christmas Inspirations Party.
