“Visions of Sugarplums” designed by Linda James, NC
First step in holiday gift basket preparation? Gather all the odds and ends of late fall inventory and brainstorm for ways to move them as you roll out the yuletide gift line. One excellent way to move the end-of-line stragglers is to use them as ornaments for a Christmas “gift” tree. Everything can be part of the oddball gift buffet . . . cookies, crackers, sauces and syrups, coffee, candy . . . anything goes! Top the tree and trim it to the base with a merry holiday bow. This is an excellent design to suggest for all the holiday charity events. Ask the group to provide the tree and you’ll hang on all the trimmings! Good door prize gift, too.
