What made me really love this chandelier featured over on Ruffled is the oversized ornament balls that were used. It's the larger size of the ornaments that I think really makes the impact and makes them so fun! The ornaments are actually made out of styrofoam balls so the chandelier is very lightweight. Perfect for the holidays--decorate the ornaments with some glitter and they'll be especially perfect for New Year's Eve! Find the full tutorial here.

We went to a fun cookie exchange Friday night. The kids got to decorate gingerbread houses while the moms enjoyed some wine and exchanged cookies. I don't really like to bake, and since the party was at 4:30 on Friday, time wasn't on my side either. So, I scoured Pinterest for a quick idea and found these no-bake peppermint sandwich cookies from Better Homes & Gardens here. They were delicious and a hit! They kind of taste like thin mints. I ran the edges in chopped up candy canes too which made them look so pretty that these cookies would make an easy neighbor gift as well. If you're in a pinch for a quick cookie idea--you'll be thanking me!

Some of you may know that I'm an Independent Marketing Consultant by day. So, of course, at this time of year I'm always looking for ideas on what I can send clients. One of the companies I work for sends a platter of homemade cookies every year. It's something easy and everyone in the office can enjoy it. But what about this cute DIY wreath that's made with candy tins?  The candy tins have magnets that would let individuals take and enjoy some candy. I love this idea and will certainly be pinning it for next year! Find the full tutorial over at Kara's Party Ideas.
