Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue! That just about describes my Valentine’s cookies this year!
I have been filling little Valentine mailboxes with cookies for years now. The first time I documented it was in 2011 here on the blog! If you’d like a good laugh, and to see how far I’ve come, take a look at “Valentine’s Mailboxes 2011.”
Here is the 2018 version:
Another oldie but goodie are “lip cookies.” Royal icing makes the perfect lip imprint by just simple zig-zagging. I’ve always loved this look. This year I added a little glittery gloss to my normal lips. Pretty fun!
You know I love a good Kate Spade effect. And the black and white stripes (plus gold and floral) go right within that theme! I designed this medium boxed set with a “Galentine” in mind!
I made my mini set with ballet colors in mind. Black, white and light pink is a simple but sweet color scheme, and everyone loves minis! Next, I added a cookie tic-tac-toe set because Target calls my name with it’s cute stuff!
Ahh, yes, my favorite Valentine’s color scheme. Is red, pink and turquoise! So I made some simple “Happy Valentine’s Day, Name cookie and “I love us,” cookies in my favorite color scheme!
