No denying it this feels like the last official prep day, while you still have the 24th, today is the "Eve of the Eve". So today is when you come to terms with the fact that not everything you planned is going to happen, If you did manage to pull it all off ~ Congratulations you are my hero!  I'm not quite there yet,  every year I get a little overly ambitious with my plans. Therefore I had to come to terms with using more store bought desserts than I planned, however I was still able to dress them up, here what I did in the interest of time.

 I bought some simple white iced layer cakes, one vanilla one coconut.

  • I added a little natural red food coloring to homemade whipped. 
  • Crushed candy canes corsley. 
  • Added dollops of whipped cream on top of cakes and sprinkled candy cane.

Using bakery cookies 

  • I tied a big pretty fabric festive ribbon and the neck of an Apothecary jar.
  • Dropped in the cookies...and it was gorgeous!

Your guest will love the effort as much as if you had baked the goods yourself!
