Our colorful Christmas Confection tree topper is so sweet and simple. All it takes is the Show Me Decorating 3 key ingredients, ribbon, florals and a focal point.

Large Red, White Swirl Lollipop

Start with a giant red lollipop, 3 floral sprays to compliment the tree theme, and 2 bows made with wired ribbon. A recipe for this sweet tree can be found at Show Me Decorating. Christmas Confection Tree Theme 

Curly Spray, fun floral for the ChristmasConfection Tree theme!

We start at the top of the tree placing 2 bows back to back leaving part of the tree top showing. So many times we see bows perched on top of the tree and we prefer to wire on lower on the tree top and then placing 2nd bow in back. This gives the appearance of a bow all the way around!

Next place the focal point or tree topper  (the Red and White lollipop) and secure with florist wire. A faux tree, green or flocked has wired branches making them easy to decorate and secure bows, florals, balls and ornaments. However the same decorating techniques can work on a live Christmas Tree.

Floral stems complement our Christmas Confection tree theme. 3 different floral sprays are used at the top and placed directly into the top of the tree, no need for wiring on this top. A Fuchsia Poinsettia is added for a finishing touch.

Peppermint Sequin ball spray in Red and white are another seer addition to this tree theme.
