peppermint table arrangement

Image

during the holiday season this year, i saw a photo of a peppermint table centerpiece, and decided to replicate it for post-Christmas and New Year’s.  the peppermint candies were liked by the family who visited, and the bright red and white display was very attractive. i was able to purchase the candy at our local grocery stores, though i had to visit several to find the exact assortment.

i used two square pedestal dishes and some smaller custard cups to hold some of the candy.  i moved the arrangement around from table to counter, while using it in a variety of places throughout the season.  there is nothing like peppermint to say Christmas is here.

in the background of the photo, our new year’s table decorations can be seen.  i typically use silver balls and silver bells to ring in the new year.

after the holidays, i have used the left over peppermint in a variety of recipes and will feature them on the blog soon.
