Sunbathing Cookies

When my son turned one, his birthday party theme was simply, fun in the summer. I was thinking about how much I enjoyed decorating these little cookie sunbathers and thought I'd share the cuteness!

A friend used a gingerbread man cookie cutter and made the sugar cookies for me. I then "dressed them in their swimsuits" with prepackaged cookie decorating icing. (One little rascal is weaning nothing but a smile ;-) They are lying on "towels" cut from pieces of scrapbook paper and are lying on a "beach" of light brown sugar. The little drink umbrellas added a nice touch!

I also loved the sunshine plates in the picture below. I got a bunch of yellow plates from the dollar store. I cut some of them into triangular shapes ) like cutting pieces of pie and then hot glued the pieces to the underside of another plate to create the sun's "rays."

I can't believe this was a year ago...time flies!

Yay Linky Parties!!

SO adorable. I especially like the one with a big 'ole smile.....and nothing else. And, the beach towels...how clever! Love it.
