Last month I told you about my love affair with candy jars and now I will explain more. When we remodeled our kitchen a few years ago we built a special cabinet to display the candy jars. They are the focal point of my kitchen, dining and living room areas. I enjoy filling and arranging the candy jars for each big holiday or season of the year, but my favorite displays include decorated cookies. Below is what I came up with for this year’s Halloween candy jar display.
There is a giveaway with this blog post, but to enter you have to figure out the answer to our mystery. Hint: The clue is in the photos.
All decorated cookies in the jars were decorated by Susan Schmitt of The Painted Cookie or The Painted Cookie CT on Facebook. Susan also helped collaborate on several of the cookie cutter designs used in this post.
