I made the decision in November to combine all of these things....it turned into what I hope is our 1st annual Christmas cocktail party. I baked for two straight weeks, decorated like crazy and celebrated with friends and family last night.
Let's start with the cookie baking, shall we?
The kitchen counters were scattered with blue and white snowflakes,
which were packaged and sent home with our guests.
I also made snicker doodles, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter chip cookies, peanut butter cup cookies and jam thumbprints
And just because I'm thrilled with how my snowflake cookies turned out, here are some more pictures. :)
I'll let the house decorations speak for themselves.
And of course, here are the obligated night time shots.
When the party started, I put down my camera and enjoyed the moments laughing, telling stories and make memories with family and friends! After all, that's what this season is all about right?
