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 would use the red, white and blue sweet stars by putting them in fancy jars as a decoration for my 4th of July bbq.

  2. Deborah W.

    I like the Celebration candies and gumballs. THey are so brilliant in color and would make any dessert or confection look wonderful.

  3. Dawn Keenan

    I would choose sixlets. They are tasty and small enough to decorate with, without having to worry about choking hazards.

  4. Racquelle

    I’d use sixlets because they are one of my favorite candies.

    I would like the red white and blue mix stars, I think they would look good on cupcakes for the 4th of july

  6. Susan Smith

    I would use the Red, White and Blue Mix Stars Sweet Shapes™ candy to decorate my cupcakes for July 4th.

  7. Shelly Hammond

    I’d love to use the Ovation Mint Sticks. They are quite universal. They could be used whole as they are, broken in half or quartered to make other types of decorations, or even crumbled as a topping (or even snacked on in between). I think they’d be perfect!

    I’d use gumballs because there is such a big variety to choose from and you could do so many things with them.
