Candy Cane Peppermint Punch

Hello friends.  I hope you all had a merry and peaceful Christmas.  It has been super busy in our home as I am sure it has been the same for most of you too. 

I am happy to be here today sharing this easy recipe with you, because after all, is there anything better than Christmastime?  Holidays songs and movies have been on repeat for the past few days, tons of holiday cookies have been eaten and pretty lights are everywhere in the house.  So forget about dieting.  Diets will have to wait after the new year.

Today, I am sharing a recipe for eggnog which was shared by Deborah Shearer Table + Dine.  The recipe was so good that I had to share it with you all.  I made it on Christmas Eve and it was a total success.  The combination of eggnog with peppermint ice cream is just perfection.

The recipe takes less than 10 minutes from start to chill time, which makes it great for the busy holiday season.


  • 1 Quart eggnog
  • 1 Liter ginger ale
  • 1/2 Gallon peppermint or french vanilla ice cream
  • Crushed candy canes

Pour eggnog and ginger ale into a punch bowl and lightly stir. Scoop in ice cream to float and garnish with crushed candy canes.

Use water or honey to wet the rim of the glasses, dip into crushed candy canes and enjoy!

Warmest wishes from my family to yours!



  1. This looks so good and refreshing. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. That looks wonderful, so good I'd have to have two. Ok maybe three!

9 Steps for Hosting The Ultimate Spring Birthday Tea Party

Hi friends - I've missed you all.  Things are rapidly changing for us all.  Many of us are working from home these days, stopped gathering with family and weekend outings are basically trips to the supermarket to restock.  It's the least that we can do to help stop the spreading of this horrific virus that is changing the world as we know it.  That being said, I am so glad that I got to spend time with family and friends two weeks ago when we all came together for the celebration of my Goddaughter Daniella's birthday.  We had a blast and the memories made are ones that will live in my heart forever.     My sincerest thank you to everyone that helped me put this beautiful event together.  Especially my cousin, Jennifer of Having Fun Craft s, for making all the gorgeous place cards and backdrops.  They were a beautiful addition to the overall decor.  A big thank you and hug to my niece Ericka for flying in from Florida to help me put it all together and to the amazi

Wood Box Rustic Floral Arrangement Tutorial

So what do you do with an old wooden bit box found at a flea market???  Well, the answer is very simple for those of us that love all things vintage and worn...  We display flowers of course.   And luckily, I scored big on my trip to my local grocery store yesterday. Our flower vendor had the most spectacular roses in stock.  I couldn't believe how gorgeous they were.  Two tone roses in the most delicate soft shades of pink and fuchsia.  I knew these roses were meant for me!!!  I grab two bunches and practically ran home to snap a few shots of them and arrange them to showcase their timeless beauty. So today, I am sharing a tutorial on how I made this rustic centerpiece...  The best part of this tutorial, is that there are no fancy materials needed.  The only items required are the flowers, a few glass tumblers, water and floral shears or scissors.  And in less than 10 minutes, you will have a spectacular centerpiece that will rival any one that you may purchase at a Floris

A Country Christmas Tablescape

Until this Christmas, I had no idea that I was going to be having a little obsession with vintage trucks. Specifically, red pickup trucks.  Me, the girl that loves to decorate with delicate flowers and romantic fabrics.  Hard to believe but it is true!!!  And decorating with vintage cars is seems to be having a moment..  They are everywhere!! So today, I am happy to share one of my most pinned and shared tablescapes.  It is my Country/Farm house themed Christmas table which showcases my latest find. You guess it!  A red pickup truck.  It was just too adorable to pass up.  I didn't know what use it would have in my decor when I first brought it home but it quickly became the inspiration for all of our Christmas decorating the last two holiday seasons. Such a fun piece to own with a great vintage vibe too.   My whimsical table begins with a distressed wood charger in antique white, topped with simple white plates and Pier 1 Imports Glad Tidings Porcelain Salad plates.  I al
