A sweet gal emailed me after seeing my margarita cookies and wondered if I would make them for a party she was giving to honor her mom on her 50th birthday. I thought her thoughtfulness and love for her mom was so sweet that I told her I’d be happy to RSVP with my cookies.
The regular and strawberry margarita cookies would be served.
I wrote a post on how to decorate margarita cookies but this time I made the cookie charms a little different and I already have an idea to try something new next time.
That’s what I love about cookie decorating – coming up with new ideas to try.
Because there are two dominant colors of cookies for one party I wanted to unite them with ribbon. I thought orange would be the perfect choice for both of the colors and I loved the shiny polka dots ribbon I found at Michaels. Polka dots always say “happy”, “fun” and “party” to me.
I always package in what my helpful UPS friend, Judy, calls a tabbed pizza box lined with big bubble wrap. (Thank you, Judy, for all your help and the discounts! You were super!)
I then pack the pizza boxes in an outer box packed with peanuts, say a prayer to the cookie shipping angles (I really do) and off they go!
Happy birthday to your mom, Mindi and thank you for inviting my cookies to your party!
