This year I had my mom help out and she baked all the cookies while also helping prepare the food for the evening. This year's party had about 20 people attend and it takes quite an effort to pull off of an organized party for 20 people in my home. So, big thanks to my wonderful momma.
One of the things I wanted to do this year was have centerpieces for my table. I expand my table so it'll seat 12 and put all of the cookie decorations and icing in the middle. To make it more festive I added these:
The party is promoted as a "Naughty Gingerbread Party". Meaning, I don't expect anyone to follow any set cookie decorating guidelines. I want people to be creative, get wild and enjoy fellowship with fun loving ladies. I'm posting a few wholesome photos as the others I took, while hilarious, are not suitable for my PG-13 (and sometimes R-rated) blog.
