Party For the Baby!

Pin It
So I have been busy, busy, busy.  Just not busy writing.  I thought I'd do a post on the baby cookies I've been making recently.

I do love Pooh, and I thought this sweet face was the perfect way to capture his sweetness.  I was very reluctant to take this one on, but I have done many cookies for this friend, so I jumped in!

Books are among my favorite things to give when there is a new baby.  Of all the things I have sold and given away and tossed from my own kids childhood, I can honestly say the book shelves remain full.  I cannot part with the stories, the illustrations and the memories they all hold.  These were for a shower themed with this famous caterpillar!!  Such a joyous event to celebrate, and I do love a good theme!!!

One of my Pure Barre instructors (one of a few!) have made me a part of their kids celebrations.  From the baby showers to the birthday parties, I just love it.  These little dump trucks were so much fun to load up with black jimmies and sprinkles!

The crayon cookies were not my favorite to make.  First I had to fudge the cutter, and I feel like they lose some of their hard lines when you pull a knife across the dough. The made a great platter, and frankly, the 4 year olds didn't find their imperfection.

 Finally some sailboats for a one year old, poor thing is land-locked right here in Memphis!  But here's to calm seas and smooth sailing!

That's all for now!  Come over to Instagram and you will see that I do post cookies frequently!!  What are you waiting for?  Get in there and bake!

Religious Celebration Cookies

Pin It
I love a good celebration, and regardless of your faith, I think we can agree that faith itself is a good thing!  I love a child all dressed up for a ceremony be it Communion, Baptism, or even wedding. Much more on weddings to follow, like every month I am coming up with a wedding platter!  We have even had one of our own and another happening soon!

Thanksgiving Place Card Cookies

Pin It

A fall platter for Thanksgiving!
I love a holiday!  Actually I love a dinner party, a holiday dinner is nice because there isn't a lot of thought process to it.  I know that it's turkey on Thanksgiving, Prime Rib or Beef Wellington for Christmas, Lamb on Easter.  What I really love to do however, is set a table.  China, crystal, silver...chargers, napkins, tablecloths, I love to put it all together!

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, I am thinking place card cookies.  The first is a plaque with a little pumpkin, airbrushing gives it a little depth.  But the gilded pumpkin I made for a fall platter will be the cookie for this years table.  I just love the gold stem and the splatters.  I may even wrap the cookie and put the name on a tag instead of the cookies.  I didn't offer any place card cookies this year, so it is just for my family of 9.  I will have cookie platters for the masses!  Easy is the best way for me!  Happy Thanksgiving.  Don't eat too much turkey!

Thanks Pinterest!
