The Gift Of Homemade Cookies

Freshly baked cookies make some of the most lovely party favors for guests. They can be a sweet reminder of the special occasion for which they attended long after it has ended. Many different cookie styles make good contenders, however I find smaller varieties not only package well but many may be baked in one session that yield a multitude of gifts. If you’re hosting an upcoming shower this summer, I encourage you to offer guests homemade party favors. It’s quite old-fashioned but such a wonderful gesture to extend to friends, family & loved ones. Learn how to make these timeless creations in your very own home.

How To Package Cookies For Gifting

Once the baking has concluded, the Lemon-Poppy Seed Tea Cookies or Lemon-Poppy Seed Butter Cookies will need to cool completely. Satin ribbon, butchers twine or even garden string may be used in order to create an effortless embellishment on gifts. I find it is best to have a variety of options available.

Casual sacks & glassine bags are an effortless approach to creating party favors for guests. They’re easy to locate & may be stashed away & used at a moments notice. Portion the cookies in glassine bags & secure them with butchers twine. This will keep the butter from bleeding onto paper mediums. Next, slip the cookies into miniature paper shopper sacks & add a simple bow to the outside of the package. Line up the gifts on an heirloom silver tray & place them near the front door. As guests exit the event, they may receive one easily.
