Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit like baking a fresh batch of Christmas cookies! My favorite childhood memories are from the holiday season, crowded around the kitchen table for hours with my mom and little sister, baking countless batches of our favorite flavors. So couldn’t be more excited to show you how to throw a Christmas Cookie Party with Papyrus and their new holiday entertaining line!
SEND AN INVITE
Get the party started by inviting your guests! Chris’ nephew Jacob just celebrated his 7th birthday, so thought we’d make it a kid-friendly afternoon. One by one they added our cookie ingredients, and practiced how to follow directions! When they weren’t fighting over who’s turn it was, they were sneaking chocolate chip morsels – thinking Aunt Anna and Uncle Chris didn’t see…
Although Chris and I don’t have our own kids, we’ve learned that it’s always best to have snacks on hand, especially when little ones are involved. You’ll often find me eating the cookie dough straight from the bowl and enduring the inevitable stomach ache later on…
Be prepared. Plan your menu ahead of time and have all your ingredients handy! It makes sticking to a schedule much easier when kids are involved. Here’s a look at what we made and some of my favorite recipes:
BEVERAGES + PARTING GIFTS
I recently discovered this hot chocolate mix from Williams-Sonoma and fell in love with it’s savory and sweet taste! As many of you know, I’m a non coffee drinker. So this girl has had her fair share of hot chocolate over the years, and this mix is SO delicious. I made a small cup with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and allowed the kids to dunk their marshmellow reindeer and watch them melt. The Papyrus Christmas Cheer bags were the perfect size for the kids to grab a few of their favorite cookies to take home!
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions? Any go-to cookie recipes I must try? Let me know in the comments below! Have a great weekend friends, thanks for stopping by!
