Valentine cookie party.

Do you have plans already for the 14th? Whether you do or don’t is actually no matter… I’ve always thought cupid’s day was more about good girly fun than relying on any Mr. to make it festive. So why not have a ladies cookie making party?┬áCut-out cookies after all are way too much work all on your own!

Some tried and true tips from a veteran cookie decorating party thrower (5 years in a row!):

1. You absolutely have to make at least several batches of dough ahead of time or your guests will be twiddling their thumbs. I highly recommend my friend Mitra’s sugar cookie recipe. Sneak peak: the secret ingredient for non-flat cookies is sour cream.

2. Make sure there is non-sugar sustenance provided. Usually I order pizza, but this year I may attempt to make some Vietnamese salads, because I’m currently in Saigon and am obsessed!

3. Ask each gal to B.H.O.A. (Bring Her Own Apron) unless you have a hefty stack of your own.
4. Top your decorative tablecloth with a clear protective table cloth that wipes down easily because this will get messy I promise.

5. Make sure you have paper plates, saran wrap, and some decorative ribbon so that each gal has something lovely to take away.

Maybe you have a Mr. you want to give your cookies to… maybe your doorman needs a pick-me-up… I’m sure you can think of someone who needs a little cheer!

  5. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone
    with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
