Host a holly jolly holiday cookie celebration this season featuring this festive DIY cookie decorating station, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Crisco®.
Begin by baking a basic batch of sugar cookies — they make the best base for decorating — then set up your DIY decorating station on a long table for your guests. Display cookies on tiered stands to keep them within arm’s reach while reserving more table space for decorating.
For the main event, let guests decorate their own cookies to bring home or package as presents. Prior to the party, fill plastic squeeze bottles with icing to make decorating easier. Fill small bowls and glasses with a variety of toppings (such as sprinkles, sanding sugar, chocolate-covered candies, crushed candy canes and chocolate chips) and set them out with spoons on a serving tray.
Download our free printable recipe cards to give to guests during the party, then encourage everyone to share their favorite cookie recipes with each other. Bonus: Guests can also use the recipe cards to accompany cookie gifts — just package cookies in containers and attach the recipe card to the top.
After the decorating is done, gather your guests in the living room to enjoy each other’s company — and your tasty treats before everyone brings the rest home to share as gifts!
