My Grandma on my mom’s side usually had it in an old cookie tin that sat on the dining room table. The whole family would always be passing it around and picking out their favorite pieces to eat.

  1. I love this! My mom often had a totally edible tree, from strung popcorn and cranberries to candy canes to cookies wrapped in plastic wrap and hung. These ornaments would have been perfect!!!
