Galentine's Cookie Decorating Party
Brunch is great for Galentine's Day but this year I wanted to host an interactive party. Oh I served up brunch, but we also decorated cookies. I picked up cookies from Delectable Baked Goods for us to decorate. I could have baked my own cookies but our oven is 20 years old and while it bakes cakes and dinner just fine, sugar cookies never seem to turn out right.
My friends had so much fun choosing between all the sprinkles to decorate the cookies with. I chose to decorate some of my cookies with mini hearts and arrows from Wilton and Petite Sour Hearts from Jelly Belly.
My friend had too much fun with her cookies. She created little works of art using a variety of sprinkles.
One thing I learned from this party is that not everyone knows how to use pipping bags and piping tips to decorate cookies. I learned from my mom when I was young. When I decorated this cookie with the swirls and frosting xoxo my friends were asking me how I was doing that. So while I'm not a cookie artist, you just might be seeing more cookie decorating party's here.
All our pretty cookies, well, almost all our decorated cookies. We couldn't help it. We ate some before snapping a pic.
Hello sugar high.
This party was full of unexpected surprises for me. Bubbles being one of them. When I picked up mini bubbles for party favors I had no idea how much fun my friends would have with them. As soon as they saw them they started blowing bubbles and blew bubbles through out the whole party.
Confetti party poppers were another unexpected nice surprise. I made them as a party favor. I assumed my friends had done confetti poppers before. Nope. When they saw them they were excited to try them.
Party props don't always have to be printables on a stick. Fun balloons and pillows make great party props too.
