Bake. Decorate. Donate.

This week I hosted a Drop In & Decorate party for my MOMS Club. The idea is simple: decorate sugar cookies, then donate them to a local non-profit agency. The kids had a great time using squirt bottles to decorate the sugar cookies.

The kids also painted icing on the cookies.

The moms joined in on the decorating fun too!

More decorating fun

Decorating is serious business!


Throughout the day, over 40 kids and moms came to the house to decorate. Molly loved having so many friends to play with!

We had some creative designs created on the cookies.

Cookies = happiness

Everyone had such fun decorating that before I knew it we were out of cookies! In the end, over 200 cookies were decorated. The dining room was so colorful and smelled heavenly!

The cookies dried overnight and the next day we wrapped and boxed them for donation.

I delivered 125 bags of sweet treats to the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center.

The party was a huge success! Several moms talked about hosting a party with their Girl Scouts and military wives groups. The great thing about these Drop In & Decorate parties is that you can have 5 people or 40 people. If you are interested too, all the information and resources to do so is on the Drop In & Decorate website.

    I love this! There are so many good ideas involved in this…I love the idea of a cookie decorating party, I love the idea of putting the icing in a squirt bottle, I love the idea of painting icing with brushes…and most of all, I love the idea of donating all of those cookies to such a worthwhile cause! So cool. 🙂

    Beautiful cookies, wonderful decorators! I know the families served by the Crisis Intervention Center will enjoy many moments of happiness because of your generosity. Special thanks to your MOMS group and everyone who participated.

    Congratulations! I agree, part of the fun of hosting a cookie decorating party is inspiring others to do the same! I love the ‘ripple effect’.
