Prepare your labels with sticks preferably wooden or metal. Stick around fudge flavour groups. Place the fudges in small trays together with random cuts of your desserts and fruits. Note: Put the big fruits first.
Arrange your christmas puddings at your round cake stand with lid.

When all small trays are ready, put arranged smaller trays in your Big tray.

If you have an extra 2 or 3 layer stand, arrange your candles in 4 corners.
Put some fresh flowers on the side or sprinkle all around if you have edible flowers.
Lastly, place your Gold Pillar Candle Holder at the back and light it up!
