PLACE CARD COOKIES/ Tablescapes



Do you ever watch Sandra Lee on The Food Network? Besides making savory and sweet dishes, she creates amazing tablescapes. The theme and color scheme is interwoven into the plates, napkins, tablecloth, place cards and decorative detail. Sandra definitely has a knack for setting beautiful tables.

For something extra special for your holiday table, why not make place cards out of cookies! They can even double as take-home favors. Simply ice the cookies with white icing and let them dry overnight. Use the airbrush method to avoid time to mix colors. Write the names of guests with a food marker …easy!  If inclined, pipe the letters in royal icing and add a fancy border. The cookies can be wrapped or unwrapped. I whipped up a batch of sample Thanksgiving cookies. Sandra may even approve!

  2. Cute cookies and nice idea for the holidays. I like how airbrushing the edges accentuates the cookie shape but it makes for a dark cookie;both look nice. Sue

    1. Sue, Thank you. I think I prefer the cookies without the airbrushed edges as they keep with the traditional colors of the Fall. Have a nice holiday!
