I chose to bring together a color scheme based on reds, pinks, lime greens, and kelly greens. It is fun, bright, and whimsical. Let me share a few of my favorite highlights from this sweet candy land:
1. Peppermint Paradise: Using two chinet cardboard plates facing each other, I drew peppermints with red permanent marker. Then, using iridescent cellophane and pink ribbon, I created a "wrapper" over the mints. For the lollipops, I used wooden dowels to create a lollipop stick effect. These giant peppermints and peppermint lollipops now hang from the ceiling and adorn the doors in the shop.
3. Candy in glass jars: It took a little bit of sorting, but color appropriate gum balls are perfect in this glass jar. Large lollipops from a candy store and giant peppermint sticks bring the pinks and reds into the scheme!
4. Sparkle and Shine: decorative shiny grass (with little kids coming through, we may regret this one) and white/clear marbles give a bright backdrop to the colorful frame lines we featured. The iridescent candy wrappers on the peppermints also bring in some sparkle and shine to the look.
