Sugar plum tree?

Here's my finished little white tree. The idea is to festoon it year round with seasonal embellishments- hearts, ornaments, birds, shells, etc. It is simply branches stuck in plaster of Paris in an old pot, painted white later. My grandmother Noble had a tree very much like this. She called it a sugar plum tree, and she stuck gum drops on the ends of the twigs at Christmas time! I don't think I'll do that. :-)
