I have a huge sweet tooth, so it is near impossible for me to resist a good candy garland. There have been some really fun ones here on Oh Happy Day in the past too: candy lights garland, cotton candy garland, and jelly bean garland. Use any color tissue paper to whip up this sweet little garland for your next party.

It’s the start of a new school year and time to make a good impression. Wouldn’t it be fun to impress your teacher with an apple treat box? These boxes would also be perfect for a Back to School Party or a fun way to celebrate International Eat an Apple Day (September 20th). Pack these apples with any type of candy but if you want to be a bit sneaky you can fill them with gummy worms!

Either together or separately they would be perfect decorations for a cheerful party!
