I'm dreaming of Christmas. I love this time of year. Forgive me for posting about Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I usually go out of town for Thanksgiving and don't do much decorating for that holiday although, what I don't do in decorating, I am sure to make up for in eating! lol
One of my very favorite Christmas decorations...which make my giddy and revert to 6 years old...are SNOW GLOBES! I like everything about them. Not the kind with the off tune music box connected to the bottom, but the old vintage-y kind...
A few years ago we had a Christmas Open House to raise money for a friend who was adopting from Ethiopia and I decorated the kitchen table with snow globe desserts. My kids got to devour them after everyone went home and I think they were a hit! I got the idea from a Country Living magazine and I think I will try to do them again this year.
They are a little messy and I did them quickly so they weren't JUST as I wanted them to be, but I have big plans this year to make a few adjustments and improvments. Basically, they are cream puffs mounted on a peanut butter cup base. Very fun and a real hit. The sky is the limit with ideas!
Another idea that I did last year using a gumball machine was a lot of fun as well...
My little snowman inside is Russian. Easy to do and brings a smile to many faces!
Yes, maybe a little premature on my Christmas posting...but I am just sure you will forgive me.
