Keeping in theme with the invitations, I will use orange, black, and white decorations to transform my house from everyday to cookie party day. Create a chic look with bold accents and glowing lights. The first, and most important, thing to do is figure out where everyone will set up their cookies. Make sure tables are accessible from all sides and covered with graphic black and white tablecloths.
Place black cake stands on the tables in an attractive pattern so guests have a spot to display their cookies upon arrival. On a smaller table, stack small white plates and orange cloth napkins. Line up dessert wine glasses in neat rows.
Float orange candles in infinity glass bowls filled with water. Vases filled with orange tulips add fragrance and a fresh Autumnal feel.
Before guests leave, invite them to take a black take out container — tied with a pretty orange and white grosgrain ribbon — and fill it with cookies and recipes to take home.
