Arrangement Of Autumn Harvest Objects
Packaging & Decorating Your Edible Goodies
1) You can make your own containers, recycle ordinary everyday items or purchase them. The dollar store provides a wide range of tins, interesting boxes, bags, cellophane bags, wooden, plastic, or woven baskets and glassware to afford-ably add pizzazz to your food gifts.
Transform Your Package
2) Cardboard or card-stock in different colors, prettily or strikingly patterned wrapping paper, paints, stencils, ribbons and bows will transform a plain package into a masterpiece.
3) Add a finishing touch. Think about the person you are giving the gift to and add suitable embellishments that match their personality. A tassel handle, ribbon, a bunch of crystallized roses, or a personalized embossed gift tag can add just the right amount of dash or class to your gift. Colored candy wrappers, stickers, pressed leaves or a handful of shells can be made into decorative trimming.
4) Quick and simple- decorative gift bags, tins, and colored cellophane are perfect for cookies, quick breads, fruit cakes, peanut brittle and your other treats.
Re-cycle Your Cans
5)-Cans in every size can be recycled for your edible goodies. Creatively wrapped and decorated they are charming. Use paper, stickers, ribbon, fabric and yarn to embellish and delight the recipient.
6) Layering your goodies in a glass creates a beautiful effect. You can layer colorful candies in a tall glass vase (Try colorful jellybeans in autumn colors) Cover the top of the vase with clear or colored cellophane and tye with colored ribbons.
Use Terra-cotta Pots
7) Transform ordinary terra cotta pots into cheerful holiday servers. When decorating the pot, anything goes - Paint holiday themes such as autumn leaves, flowers and vines, landscapes, animals, or whatever you like. Stenciling looks especially pretty. Nestling or layering fabric napkins adds a finishing touch. You can also affix colorful fabric shapes to the pot or even photographs.
8) Edible gifts and Amazon have some gorgeous ideas for presentation. If you choose to make your own gifts this holiday season look carefully at their products and change up accordingly for your own.
Above all, enjoy being creative as you perfect the art of giving.
