Eat the Gemstones
You know what might be just as enjoyable as wearing a collection of gemstones? Eating them! And by that I don’t mean eating actual gemstones, I mean eating a delicious array of gemstone shaped cookies and cakes. The beauty of the gemstone’s geometrical design is that the shape can be turned into almost any edible product, from cakes and cookies to delicate chocolates and even macaroons.
Follow the tutorial at Semi Sweet Designs and learn how you can even do it yourself!

Stick A Gemstone In Everything
Gemstone toppers can be found from many different suppliers and for many different reasons. You can find paper gemstones stuck to sticks to be placed into donuts or cupcakes, you can find gemstone wrappers that sit on the end of your straw in your very fancy drink, or even edible gemstone jewels to be placed on a cake. The only question is, what can you not stick a gemstone on?

Use Actual Gemstones
Depending on the kind of gemstone party you are looking at having, you can actually buy a series of plastic gemstone lookalikes (or you can get real ones if your going glitzy) from many different online party stores. Then you can scatter them all over your table like you would confetti, or even score some bigger ones to star as a table centrepiece. Go big or go home right?
