Cookie Decorating Party

16228315_SCookie decorating is a great holiday activity for the kids, your friends, and pretty much anyone involved.  Make it a cookie decorating party!

Baking Cookies: You could bake the cookies the night before so there’s less hassle the day of the party.  Another option is to have everyone bring his or her own special batch of cookies so you have a variety of holiday cookies.

Decorating Stations: Have everyone pick a few cookies and set up stations so people can get up and move around to mingle with everyone.  Set up an icing station with multiple icing colors in containers, a sprinkles space, and an area for miscellaneous cookie decorations.

Include the Kids: Set a table up just for the kids with all of the essential decorating tools in the middle so everyone can enjoy.  If you keep the cookie decorations in one place it helps with the clean up, too.  Put down a plastic tablecloth or one that you won’t mind getting a little dirty, just in case.

Adults Only:  If you would prefer a more grown up approach to the cookie decorating party, just add a drink station for adults only.

Cookie decorating is fun for everyone!  To make the party a little more interesting, have a prize for the best-decorated cookie at the end of the night.  It’s always nice to see your friends and families’ creative talents on a delicious cookie that can be devoured in a few bites!  We hope you’re enjoying this time of the year!
