We are so excited to have Alisha from Felt So Cute share her Valentine’s Day cookie decorating party with us today!
The Cuties and I had a great time hosting a Mother & Daughter Cookie Decorating Party!
We asked our guests to bring a dozen cookies per person and we would supply all the fun extras, from icing to sprinkles to packaging materials! How cute is the Painted Chevrons Firecracker Invitation we used?
(Here’s a quick invitation tip: always remember to check the trim options – for just a wee bit more you can really upgrade the look of your invitation with rounded edges, scallops and more)
The Cuties and I had such fun figuring out what our friends might want to put on their cookies when decorating. Thankfully the husband had a business trip to the States in January so we sent him on a supply Mission Impossible for things like Conversation Hearts, Valentine-packs of M&Ms, and more.
We used small trays with a slight lip from the Hyaku Yen store (the Japanese version of the Dollar Store) to keep sprinkles from rolling off the counter tops and all over the floor.
They even had more “sophisticated” versions for the Moms’ table.
Once all the decorating was done, the kids got to work on packaging their beautiful treats! We had all sorts of pretty things for them to choose from – ribbons, sharpies and wax paper in pink or red with polka dots!
Of course we pulled out all our washi tape in Valentine colors!
And then there were plenty of cellophane bags, pipe cleaners, and stickers as well.
I chose the Valentine’s Dots collection stickers from Tiny Prints and left room so each of the girls could add their names to their packaging. They coordinated really well with the different washi tapes we had as well as the polka dot ribbon you see in the photo above, and the girls used them in both the Gift Tag size and the Address Label size.
