Christmas Candy Cane Stripes

I love the combination of red and white, just as with yellow, red is a colour that looks so fresh against white, its almost alive its so vivid. And so I have become a little obsessed this Christmas with peppermint candy canes and anything candy striped. I love this candy cane candle holder arrangement, its an idea that I nicked from the Ocado Christmas magazine, there is something so carnivalesque and circus about candy stripes, so cheerful and so fun.
