it’s a kid’s holiday: trees, candy & oscar oh my!

I’m so glad I’ve saved several of the Martha Stewart Kids issues that I used to work on because this Candy Tree (photographed by Anna Williams) is so pretty I wanted to share it with you. Art Director, Deb Bishop did such an amazing job on these specials. I love the candy sticks around the bottom and the jelly candy as ornaments. Now that I have toddlers running around I realize you can’t put those ornaments from Bergdorf anywhere near the bottom of the tree – if at all!  Here are some online candy shops to help you recreate this look:, and for the candy sticks.

As for finding beautiful clothes for kids for all those holiday parties, Oscar de la Renta has such gorgeous things. The link gives several suggestions in all ages and price ranges. I’ve picked a few for you here as a sampling. Red toggle coat $275, Pink pull-over with red bow $195, Scarves $95, Plaid coat $375, Velvet ballet flats $145, Hats $60, Plaid tie $65.
