Is there anything better than pretty decor you can eat? I'm a big fan of edible decor for the holidays! It makes me feel like Willy Wonka telling guests that things are edible, and now you can achieve that same feeling with this incredibly easy edible gumdrop garland that you can string across a section of your home for guests to grab gumdrops from while they mingle. If nothing else, these sugary candies add a little color to your holiday!
Instead of battling weeds this growing season, how about eating them? Care2 has a list of seven fairly common weeds we might have growing in our yards right now. They include:
- Yellow Dock/Burdock
- Lamb's Quarter
Edible arrangements are quite popular these days. A quick perusal of the internets tells me that they can also be expensive, which is why I am loving these DIY ideas.
Living Locuto's darling veggie bouquets (pictured above) would get even the most picky, anti-veggie eater to take a second look.
Karen used a head of lettuce as a floral oasis for her fruit filled arrangement.
If you'd rather have your bouquet for dessert, how about this chocolate, foil-covered Easter egg arrangement from Good Housekeeping?
Tonya took the gum drop topiary idea one step further with her sweet design.
Although this bouquet is for Valentine's day, swapping out the red heart gumdrops for pastel colors would be the way to go to usher in spring. Also, you wouldn't have to use Fudge Stripes either. Any cookie with a hole in the middle will do.
C'mon - admit it... you've tasted your Crayolas. And they taste like...well, the way they smell.
Not so with these edible crayons from fashion and food site Luxaire. The colors are just as bold, but the medium itself is totally edible.
Skip the pine and flowers this holiday season and go edible with this charming berry tree. Decorative and practical, the strawberry tree is topped with an edible star as well! It's creator, cookie and dessert aficionado Tish Boyle, graciously shares with us a tutorial of how to put one together.
We'll start with the supplies:
This one goes into the why?-because-you-can file : Toasty pâte brisée serving utensils and ramekin. Bread bowls? Ha!
Speak French? Then tell us all what this says, cause I'm sure it sounds savory: "oilà il est à présent temps de voter pour le projet qui vous semble le plus pertinent. Attention, fin des votes le lundi 9 novembre à 12h. Un grand merci à Nathalie pour avoir joué le jeu et pour sa proposition qui donne carrément envie de lécher l’écran !"
