In case you all haven't been keeping track, we are just 11 short days from Christmas. I can happily claim that most of my holiday gift shopping is done. We wrapped up a majority of our cookie baking over the weekend. The tree is trimmed. The stockings are hung. Now I am all about focusing on adding the extra finishing touches to make sure this coming Christmas is just as special (if not more so!) than the last.
One way that I like to easily do that is by ordering and having a fresh festive floral arrangement from Teleflora delivered right to my front door. About a week ago I ordered the Send a Hug Open Sleigh Ride bouquet. I just couldn't resist the super cute sledding snowmen! :) Being the frugal foodie that I am, I love finding ways to re purpose a fresh floral arrangement and its vase. The little snowmen served as the inspiration for this Snowball Donut Hole Bouquet. Once the flowers start to fade, you can simply remove and then replace them with powdered sugar donut holes (aka, snowballs) on colorful paper straws. Voila! You have an easy & cute edible centerpiece for Christmas morning or a holiday weekend brunch...
Snowball Donut Hole Bouquet
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: None
Ingredients (Serves 6-8)
- Send a Hug Open Sleigh Ride bouquet from Teleflora
- 13 oz package of powdered donut holes
- Festive/holiday paper straws (I bought a package of 40, but had some leftover.)
Remove the carnations and some of the greenery from the Send a Hug Open Sleigh Ride Bouquet. Set them aside in a vase filled with water if you plan on reassembling the floral bouquet after serving your holiday/winter brunch or breakfast.
Insert a paper straw in each of the powdered sugar donut holes. Arrange them in the sleigh vase by gently push the straws into the floral foam.
Place on your breakfast table as an edible holiday centerpiece. Serve with coffee and hot cocoa.

I just loved this Send a Hug Open Sleigh Ride bouquet from Teleflora! Ordering my bouquet online was a cinch, and my flowers were delivered right on time straight to my front door. This bouquet makes a fabulous gift for a faraway loved one- especially if they happen to love snowmen! Or you could be like me & just order one for yourself. ;) It makes for gorgeous and easy holiday decorating.
What really sold me on this particular floral arrangement was the sledding snowmen ceramic vase. I mean, how crazy cute is this? I instantly thought of using it to create a bouquet of snowballs from powdered sugar donut holes. I mean, what else would two snowmen be hauling in their sleigh? ;) It makes the perfect addition to that holiday breakfast table.
And serving the donut holes on festive paper straws makes them perfect for dunking into warm mugs of hot cocoa and coffee!
What is your favorite way to re purpose floral vases?
Who would you order the Send a Hug Open Sleigh Ride bouquet for? (Pssssttt... It is totally okay to say you would send one to yourself! ;) )
