There were four different colors of vases.
The gum and candy were big hits, yet after cleaning up from the banquet we had lots of the hard candy and some Twizzlers and suckers left over. These were given to me to save for my Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes this fall. I'll separate it all by type for storage so the flavors will not mix and then mix it again, double bag it and include a bag in each of the shoe boxes I send (well, in how ever many that I have bags for, I may need to buy some more).
It was fun to have a stockpile of shoe box goodies to give to fill a present need and also to see forty packs of gum turn into hundreds of pieces of candy--just what I needed in my stockpile. It is true that what is needed for the shoe boxes is always provided--and sometimes in unexpected ways.
|Such a nice bright addition for a child's shoe box.|
