Cookie Party

Last Saturday night, I headed up to Edmonds for a cookie party hosted by Heidi. It started at one in the afternoon, so I figured we would be baking cookies for a few hours and I'd head home early that evening. I had NO idea what a Taffera cookie party was all about! I was there for over seven hours and we made TONS of cookies. It was unbelievable.

Before the guys left us alone. :)

Heidi's friend's new baby, Cooper. He was the only boy allowed at the party and he stole the show!


Heidi rocking her new apron. SO 50's housewife, no?

Hanging out, drinking wine, and having snacks before the baking begins.

Me, Cooper, and Cooper's mom Mo.

The makings for Holly Leaves.

Seriously, he stole the show.

Half of our sugar cookies.

I had such a great time hanging out with the girls, but I swear, I was exhausted at the end of the night. AND my favorite cookies made that day were the Holly Leaves and I think I got to eat one of the 10 I took home. Apparently, they are also Joe's favorite. haha


  1. A Bake Fest! That sounds like so much fun, but I bet you're ready to not bake cookies for another year...!

  2. What a great idea. It looks like you all had a blast. Happy holidays!

  3. That's a great idea. I did all the cookie baking myself and it took me two days! The ones you did look wonderful but I can see why that baby stole the show - adorable!

  4. @Brandi - You said it! I'm not baking again (or frosting cookies) until next Christmas!

    @Kristine - It was fun, but exhausting! Happy holidays to you, too!

    @Kim - Oh, man, next time definitely hook some friends in to help. No one should have to do that alone! lol

  5. Yum, a cookie party is the best idea ever!

  6. Those cookies look amazing and I love her apron! Glad you guys had fun. :)

  7. @Stacy I figured you would think so. I have a new respect for you as a baker. lol

    @Trude The cookies were pretty yummy, but we are definitely not master frosters. haha
