\Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year and for many, cookie decorating is a beloved activity that brings families and friends together. If you’re looking for a unique and festive way to celebrate the holidays, why not host a Christmas Cookie Decorating Party? It’s a great way to get everyone in the holiday spirit!

What You'll Need

– Cookies – Frostings in festive holiday colors – sprinkles – cookie cutters (if you’re making the cookies yourself) – piping bags and tips – food dye – other festive toppings and decorations – plates – napkins

Prep Cookies & Icing Ahead of Time

If you’re hosting a Christmas cookie decorating party, it’s important to make (or purchase) the cookies and icing ahead of time. This way, when your guests arrive, they can get right to the fun of decorating. You can make your own cookies from scratch or buy pre-made ones from the store.

Gather Your Decorations

\You can order some really great cookie decorations online, so make sure to plan ahead so that there’s time for shipping. There are a lot of fun decorations, like sprinkles and edible glitter, that you can provide to make the experience even more festive. With all the supplies prepped ahead of time, your party will really be a hit!

Set Up Ahead of Time

Start by laying out a plastic tablecloth on the table or tables you will be using. This will protect the surface from any rogue frosting if you have young guests! Get some Christmas music ready and make sure it’s working to switch on for the event. Lastly, set out any extra materials needed for the cookie decorating such as icing and sprinkles. Getting the space ready the day before will help make the party a fun and stress-free event.

Create Kits for Each Guest

One easy way to host the party is to provide each of your guests with a pre-made cookie decorating kit in a box or on a tray. Include pre-baked cookies, icing, sprinkles, and other decorations. You can also provide recipes and instructions to bring home for making your own icing and cookie dough

Serve Other Snacks & Drinks

Some great ideas for snacks and drinks are festive appetizers such as mini quiches or pinwheels, easy finger foods like cheese and crackers, and holiday punches or hot chocolates. These foods and drinks can be easily prepared in advance and will help to create a festive atmosphere for the cookie decorating party.

I hope that these ideas help you to successfully host your own Christmas Cookie Decorating Party! It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit and have some fun with your friends and family.
