Valentine's Day Cookie Decorating Party

I hosted a Valentine’s Cookie Decorating Brunch over the weekend & all of us girl had such a good time playing in icing & sprinkles! It was such a cute idea. I took a ton of photos to share with y’all too! Because that’s what I like to do & maybe you’ll have a Valentine’s Cookie Decorating Party too!#ValentinesDay Cookie Decorating #Party! | http://southernlysplendid.com

We had lots of yumminess!The chicken minis were definitely the biggest hit & gone in about 30 seconds. I used my Copycat Chickfila nugget recipe & stuck them inside Parker House rolls. Tastes almost exactly like the real deal y’all!

We had chocolate muffins, sugar cookies, cinnamon rolls, popcorn, fruit, nuts, & cheese & crackers too.

My favorite was the little milks. I filled up some mini milk glasses I found in the Target One Spot & placed them in a iced heart platter.

I love my little burst of mushy pink love in the corner! I made different decor with tissue paper, & used balloons, gold heart doilies, streamers, garland, & beads to dress up the corner.

It became a cute photo backdrop for selfies.

I set everyone up with a sheet of parchment paper & undecorated sugar cookies. I stuck the sheets down with cute washi tape & wrote everyone’s names along top. They actually sell parchment paper in sheets just like that. How did I never know that! So super helpful in life.

PS: Here’s the recipe I used for the cookies.

I made buttercream icing with shortening instead of butter plus lots of powdered sugar, some milk & a little bit of vanilla. I scooped the icing into these condiment bottles (you can get ’em for a dollar at Walmart!) & refrigerated them until the party. I set them all upside down in small mason jars to keep the icing in the bottom.

I set out pink paper bags at each person’s seat with their initial on it for them to use to bring home the cookies.

Oh & you can’t forget the sprinkles! I set them out in mini heart trays with mini plastic spoons. We’re all about the mini lately.

You could do a cookie decorating party for any holiday really or even for a little girl’s birthday party. That would be so fun! Just switch out the cookie cutters.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the party!

Blessings Y’all!
