In an effort to encourage celebrating simply, my third styled Christmas design is filled with tiny hints of simplicity. Easy details you could incorporate to create a relaxed holiday with a little added sparkle! For instance homemade macaroons…

In an effort to have this fabulously trendy treat but stay within budget, I decided to try my hand at making them. I found a great recipe until 16 steps in when I realized it was not very simple at all! Instead I grabbed a box of vanilla wafers, a jar of marshmallow fluff and went to work creating my own version of this beloved french treat!

I topped each macaroon with a dusting of baking glitter. They were incredibly pretty to look at and quite amazing to taste.
