I was really excited to decorate for Christmas this year, but I am every year. We put up my little fake tree and decked it out with lights and ornaments. Last year we just did traditional looking Christmas bulbs, but this year I was keen to get back to the mix of new and old ornaments that I think make the trimming of the tree so special. The above picture is a box of vintage ornaments I snagged from my moms house. Aren't they lovely?
I've also been a busy elf at work trying to come up with new cute ideas for cookies and cakes.
These are my snow monster cookies! So much frosting but really fun.
I also did a version of snowglobe cookies. The Penguins and snowmen are cupcake rings.
And last but not least some large cookies. Most ideas came from coworkers and an idea book I got at a conference a couple of years ago. The doors with the wreaths were a new idea I saw this year floating around the Internet.
My heart has been heavy these recent weeks. If yours has been too I hope these cheerful cookies will help lighten your day at least a bit. I hope to post some Christmas cakes soon too!
Happy cookie decorating!
