a ganache "twig" around the top and stuck in artificial petals from my geranium centerpiece I'd washed and dried. Then when I got it over to their house, no candles! I forgot candles, so we just stuck in a vanilla icing candle. He wished and blew! It was fun. Nice evening. Amazon overnighted a book I ordered him about telephone insulators (he's a collector). Living in the middle of the sticks, I'm always just amazed and impressed when I can overnight anything. I usually have to wait longer than that to find something in my own closet! Night!
