Definitely wish I stumbled upon these quirky melted snowman cookies a month ago! Crazy Domestic has a great tutorial that will give step-by-step instructions on how to create these little guys. Although the season is over, these will be awesome for next year (I couldn’t wait a whole year to share these)! [Photo courtesy of Crazy Domestic]
Here are some last-minute cookie ideas that are what you would call “semi-homemade.”
- Salted Carmel Turtle Squares (The caramel will melt off at room temp, so make sure to cut, then refrigerate prior to serving. Even though they were messy, people loved the play of the cookie bottom, the caramel top, and the salt on the top)
- Cake Batter Cookie Stacks (need I say more at how amazing these were?)
- Choco-Lumps of Coal (My coworkers loved these! The are made from coco-puffs for an extra surprise!)
After that last drop of wine is gone, the last finger foods nibbled, and the last guest happily wanders out, you just want to enjoy the night and clean up in the morning– BUT WAIT– what about all those dripping glasses all over your new wood furniture?! Whose idea was it to serve ice?! Call it ‘Lord of the UN-Rings,’ but no one wants to wake up to three dozen tennis-ball-sized rings all over their coffee table after an awesome soiree.
Man-zan-ita! After securing the manzanita branches in foam, it was time to decorate. The decorations were hand made and extremely cheap and easy to make, but look like a million dollars! The theme of the party was secured in every touch in the centerpiece– from the color scheme to the table card names.
Beat the dread “Tree Stump” virus that hits guests at party where they become glued to their seats! Tantalize them with creative drinks and names that go with the party theme that will make them say “Hmm, I wonder what a Field Trip Gone Wrong tastes like?”
Guest can sometimes be stuck to their chairs all night and not socialize. So what is better than a childhood song and a pop quiz?! These activities are made to get some laughs, get people up, and get people learning more about the retiree.
Whether for teacher appreciation week, end of the year gift, or a teacher’s retirement party, this little pencil vase will be a hit! Just some glue, a plastic container, and some ribbon you can have a unique and great vase!
