Candy Decor

I love to decorate with candy. It's an easy way to add some holiday cheer at a great price. I use this same vase every year and just fill it with appropriately themed candy. For Halloween it's candy corn. For Christmas it's either something red and white (peppermints) or last year I just used small Christmas balls. For Easter I use Robin's eggs. The possibilities are endless and it gives me an excuse to have a yummy treat around!

The only downside is when I'm craving candy corn only to realize it's been sitting out for a month and really stale. My vase usually starts out more full, but over the weeks, well, you can guess.

I do this same thing. However, I have a hard time keeping my hands off from eating it {smile}!

Thanks for sharing

This is so cute! But I don't have a hard time keeping my hands off candy corn. Blech!

Cute! I think candy corn is festive looking but despise the taste.
