Hope, Peace, Cookies

What more does one really need?



I spent the morning of the cookie swap furiously producing these little snowflake sugar cookies. I've been celebrating the holidays with the same group of lovely ladies for a few years now, and these are always requested. I like to keep it simple with the snowflakes - no need to color the icing and I have amassed quite the array of white sprinkles and snowflake cookie cutters.
Decorating was simple as Mr. Bliss and I had decked the halls (or the condo) a few weeks earlier. I did pull out my kate spade for Crane holiday card from last year and slip it into a frame that we had to create the mantra for the evening.
Hosting a little soiree was the perfect push for me to finally get a few wedding photos displayed. Mr. Bliss had barely hung these on the wall when the guests started to arrive. I also had the perfect excuse to break out our new stemware and other fun wedding gifts.

Pomegranate prosecco cocktails were the drink of the night. They are so easy and super yummy. You simply place a few pomegranate seeds in each champagne glass, add a dash of pomegranate juice then fill with prosecco. The bubbles from the prosecco actually make the pomegranate seeds dance!
Wishing you all a cookie-filled holiday!

All the photos of wedding shared is awesome. The pictures are clean and credit goes to the photographer. To plan this kind of wedding, the wedding planning people needs the assist like a free wedding planner iPad app and couples can ease the wedding tension.
