Cookie decorating is a fun party activity for any age or any holiday! It can also hold its weight as its own party theme. A rolling pin invitation, which fits into a standard business envelope, kicks the party off before guests ever arrive.
Not only does this theme take care of an activity, snack, and a take-home goodie built-in ... it's also just so *cute* to decorate with. Even down to the smallest details like these sweet cookie straws.
I created monogrammed cookie aprons from dish towels for the guests not only to keep them clean and to send home as a goodie gift for future use, but they make the party so adorable and become part of the decorations.
These monogrammed cookies were inspired by a layout I made for the December 2010 cover of Scrapbooks Etc. magazine, where I lined chipboard letters with puffy paint to mimic frosting.
