Prepping with Sweetworks Patriotic Candies for the Holidays!

#SweetworksPatriotic Holiday Treat LeahSay's Views Decor 2

I’m so excited about the Fourth of July, every year we have a family gathering here in the Ozark’s, which involves, tons of food, family, fireworks, and fun! This year I’ll be decorating my table with the help of Sweetworks Patriotic Candy*, not to mention the cupcakes and brownies the children are always asking for.

After opening the HUGE box of #SweetworksPatriotic* treats, I made a run to our local crafts store to pick up a few items which will help me create a fun table arrangement for our kitchen table leading up to the big day, at which point I’ll rearrange and come up with the big finale table topper.

I purchased a roll of burlap, which has red and blue stripes of color and a great place to begin our project. Next, I found a few fun red, white and blue themed mini decorations than I could add to my bowls and tins for a bit of added flare. (The girls love the sparkles.) I staggered out the candy in containers with different heights and shapes, however within the same red, white and blue colors. Then I sprinkle a few plastic shaped stars about, along with chocolate red foiled hearts, which pulled it all together, not to mention the Sixlets, Gumballs,* and Chocolates!

On the Fourth of July, I’ll place a large flower arrangement in the center and then rework my chocolate and candy to pull it all together.

Next, I decided to test out a new mix for a Mimosa Cake, with creamy icing. I jazzed it up a bit by topping the icing of the cake with Sweetworks, Orange Ovation* Sticks, and Shimmer White Sixlets*. The children were thrilled with the results until we cut into the cake. Then, NONE of us were impressed. Let’s  just say, our family won’t be purchasing the Mimosa mix from our local warehouse again. However, I did learn a lesson, never mess with a mix you have questionable doubts about before a big event… EVER. lol. I’ll whip up a family tried and true dessert recipe for the Fourth of July.

Little Miss L and Paw Paw say Cupcakes by tossing their hands out to the side and “asking… Cupcakes… why, yes indeed!” Miss L decorated the cupcakes by all by herself after I placed the icing on the cupcakes. She was completely serious about the task. She placed each individual candy on top of the dozen cupcakes she created. A labor of love… or grandma LeahSay’s OCD rubbing off. You be the judge.

    I am like yourself, I too love to decorate! When I was a little girl, my Grandmother used to always give me Sixlets candy – even now, 20 years after her passing, I think of her when I see Sixlets. It is a given for me, decorating with Sixlets candy is on my list.
