I actually got some wrapping done today! What a relief... I put together these 3 wick candles on a plate and put cute ribbon and a decorative spray on the top. I bought the candles at TJ Maxx for $9.99 (a real bargain) and I have been buying cute inexpensive holiday plates through the season. They had green and red I bought a couple and wrapped them up for last minute hostess gifts (all ready to go)! Ho Ho Ho!
We love to bake and one of our favorite cookies that you can do for any holiday is the "Monster Cookie" Blake loves to help with these so if you have children who love to help in the kitchen this is a great one to do with kids! Here's what you'll need: Ingredients: 6 eggs, 1lb brown sugar, 2 c. sugar, 4 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 lb. butter, 1.5 lbs. peanut butter, 1c. chocolate chips, 1c. M & M's (any festive color), 9c. oatmeal. Mix all ingredients well in really big bowl. Add oatmeal last. Drop by spoonful and flatten. Bake 10 min at 350 degrees. This makes a ton of cookies feel free to divide in half. May Freeze if you wish. Enjoy!

Think out side of the box this year when planning your holiday tables. Just because it is Christmas doesn't mean you cannot be creative in using your everyday things you love. I collect cherries and this year I decided to do a Cherries in the Snow theme with many of my most favorite cherry pieces. So get creative and get moving Christmas is only a few weeks away! Have a Merry Christmas!!!!
