Snowman cookies and Centerpieces

Christmas is coming!  I wanted to show that inspiration can come from anywhere.  I found these super cute snowman last year at Costco in a box of two.  I immediately bought them as when I saw their simple design I knew they would look great on the tables for our event.  The colors were bright and festive and they had just the right amount of detail that I knew I could make the cookie gifts to match without too much detail.

There were four different styles.  I placed both in the middle of the table on mirrored tiles and scattered glittery foam snowflakes and trees around the table.  With a few clear tealights set around the table, they looked fabulous.  Easy breezy..

Once the fabulous staff at the Delta in Halifax start setting the tables in white linens, and I’m able to get to work.

I wasn’t going to make cookies for the place settings one year and I got plenty of feedback saying everyone loves the cookies.  Here is a picture of all 4 styles of cookies that I made to match. These are sugar cookies cut with a circle cookie cutter and decorated with Royal Icing.

Loved how simple these were to make and they looked so festive, and colorful on the tables.

So don’t be afraid to try a project like this.  These would also make a wonderful gifts.
