FTC Disclosure: I partnered with Bed Bath & Beyond to throw this fabulous cookie party and received compensation and product for writing this post!
Sometimes, I swear, I am the luckiest girl ever.
Take, for instance, a few weeks ago, when I got the most wonderful offer to partner with Bed Bath & Beyond to throw a holiday cookie party! A bunch of my friends have young kids or have just recently had babies, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to have them over for a fun, low key holiday celebration!
And man, I’m pretty sure this is going to be a new holiday tradition! I love making Christmas cookies — it doesn’t feel like the holiday season without them! — and this was WAY more fun than just baking them by myself! I made peanut butter bars ahead of time (so we could have something to nibble on during the party!) and we baked sugar cookies, white chocolate and cranberry cookies, and of course, lots and lots of sugary icing to decorate with! It was such a blast, and I was so grateful for this awesome opportunity!
And even better — Bed Bath & Beyond gave me the chance to upgrade some of my kitchen tools! I went with some workhorses that have seen better days — my cookie pans, Silipat, measuring cups and spoons, ingredient bowls, and lots more! And I couldn’t resist picking out some of their beautiful holiday decorations — I couldn’t decide between traditional red and green rectangle placemats and their beautiful holiday wreath ones — so I got both!
I wanted the party to be extra special for my guests, so I decided to do little gift bags that people could use to take home our baked cookies! I included the recipes we used in each one, in the hope that they’ll become holiday traditions all around! And I added a special cookie cutter and pretty colored spatulas from Bed Bath & Beyond — to inspire all my guests to do some delicious holiday cookie-baking at home!
