Holiday and Christmas Decorations You Can Recreate~ Christmas Peppermint Candy Shop

Christmas Candy Shop Carnation Mint Sundaes I have some really cool Christmas decorations to share with you today from Sandra de Ovando, of Ovando’s in New York City. It’s a Christmas candy shop theme that you can recreate for your Christmas or holiday party.

Better yet set it up as a candy bar, and give all your guests a small box to fill with candy as party favors.

Sandra’s decorating philosophy is simple, not simplistic." Here are a couple more of Sandra’s decorating tips:

  1. Come up with a central theme, her inspiration here was peppermint candy of course!
  2. Carry that theme throughout all of your décor.

My favorite part if the design is the carnation sundaes, they’re really cute, and really easy to recreate yourself.

I love the red and white.

Here are a few pointers from Sandra for creating this look yourself:

  • Glue peppermints onto a foam ring for a fun and whimsical wreath.
  • Instead of setting out a bowl of peppermints, why not line the inside of a clear bowl with the candies then fill it with flowers, use a peppermint to top it off.
  • Ornaments and garland can all fall within the theme if you use red and white stripes.
  • Melt miniature candy canes down in the oven until flat and then insert one into your invites for a preview of the theme.
