Tabletop Tuesday - Gingerbread House

Marty over at "A Stroll Thru Life" brings us all tabletop inspirations every Tuesday. She always has such wonderful ways of "tweeking" her tables -- I'm still doing a little Christmas "tweeking" here and about you?

This was my "Gingerbread" village that I posted a couple of weeks ago on my house tour....but it was still unfinished.

You can see that gingerboy had a peppermint tree on his side.....

....but gingergirl didn't have any sweet landscaping on her side. That was because I ran out of peppermints.

Also -- my tree didn't have a "topper" until I found this little cupcake ornament.

...and a different on for my second tree. I decided to use a variety of candy for the second tree.

And now everybody's got a sweet Christmas tree!

Thanks Marty, for providing the tabletop fun. Be sure to stop by and take a peek.

See ya!
