Tinsel and Twirl

I have the cutest holiday decorations to share with you guys today. And they’re all sugary sweet. I’m talking cupcake and gingerbread nutcrackers, gumdrop garland, elves with popsicles, ice cream cones, gum ball glass and yes … cake pop ornaments, too.

They are all from my friend, Cupcake Julie’s holiday shop… Tinsel and Twirl. And it’s all crazy cute. If you remember this sugar-coated Candyland Christmas post complete with her handmade house-sized nutcrackers or even this Sweet Soldiers post from previous years at Julie’s holiday house, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. So many of you wanted to know where you could find her amazing dessert-themed decorations. Well, I’m happy to say, she’s curated some of her favorites over at Tinsel & Twirl to help add a little sweetness to your own holiday collection.

Take a peek below at just some of the decorations in her online shop.
