Pretty colors, aren't they?

Bless you all.

A Christmas Centerpiece and a Simple Table Setting…

Edible Christmas Centerpiece

A little bamboo, a little candy some ornaments and ribbon, and you have yourself a centerpiece that is both decorative and edible.  Why edible?  So that, by the end of the night, the only thing your putting away to recycle for next year are the ribbons and the ornaments.  I suppose you could recycle the take out box as well, but they come out with those every year and in different patterns, too.
