Okay everyone, we have the funnest party idea for you this holiday season!! Our Cookies for Santa Party will be a blast for all ages, so if you have a party you are planning, you don’t have to look any farther! And if planning a party wasn’t on your list, after reading this you may just change your mind! 🙂
Cookies for Santa Party:
Decorating a Santa Plate:
At this party your guests will have the opportunity to design their own plate for Santa’s cookies. This is seriously so fun!! We did it with our hubbies on a date night and we had a ball! We cranked the Christmas music (while Amber’s husband sang loudly in falsetto) and just let our creative juices flow. When we say this is a party for all ages, we mean it…we had so much fun!!
Decorating your plates couldn’t be simpler, but there are a few tips you need to know!
Tip #1- Only use food safe paint! We used Painted by Me-bake at home ceramics (affiliate) which we found on Amazon. They worked great. (You can find them at fabric or craft stores also.) Once you are done you bake the dishes in your oven for 40 minutes and the paint gets set.
Tip #2- We found using the bottom rack in the over was too hot and discolored our paint slightly. The plates that were placed in the center of the oven worked best.
Aren’t they all so fun!? The paints can be wiped off before you bake them, so it makes it fun and low pressure to come up with fun designs.
Each of your guests will leave the party with their plate they made full of cookies just in time for Santa to come for his visit!
Milk and Cookies:
We simply served milk and cookies to our guests. Everyone loves milk and cookies and it’s a perfect time of year for it! We found these cute milk bottles at Target and knew we needed to use them!
You will be able to munch on your cookies while you paint your plate, it’s a perfectly delightful way to spend a couple of hours!
We have some super cute printables for you for this party. We love the less traditional color palette we chose, turned out so whimsical and fun!
Get all the printables below.
For this centerpiece we found a red plate at the dollar store and added our design for the party, cute and easy!
