Friends, good eats, delicious sweets, wine sipping and cookie making. That pretty much sums up the Summer Sips & Sweets party Jenny and I had for some friends last week. There’s always a reason to throw a party and after this one I highly recommend having your own cooking making party.

Who knew cookie making could be so relaxing!?! I seriously left the party feeling refreshed, as if I just had a massage or something. It was very therapeutic to decorate sugar cookies while sipping on a glass of One Hope Chardonnay, giggling with the girls about our creations.

We welcome you into the Keller farmhouse to join our party. Put your apron on and enjoy the fun!

Who wouldn’t love fun summer aprons and wine as you walk into a party? These Jessie Steel aprons were so fun for all of the guests to wear and take home. One Hope Wine was the perfect pairing for our summer party. Not only is their wine delicious but One Hope is also a great company for events since half of the proceeds go to a charity of choice.


Cheese and appetizers were set out for everyone to enjoy while first arriving and mingling. We all brought our favorite cheese so the selection varied and Jenny’s appetizer table was absolutely perfect in so many ways. Those windows, the plants, the Simple & Crisp dried fruit flawlessly laid out. I just love it all!


DIY tape wine tags to match the party and keep guests from losing their glass. Find all sorts of colors and patterns for your next party at


Our Minted invites were the perfect design to set the tone right for the party. The place settings couldn’t have been any more perfect as well!


After some time enjoying our cheese and crackers, we all gather around the table for a sugar cookie baking lesson by the one and only Jenny Keller. If you don’t know Jenny, well then you’re missing out. She just published a book, ‘Eat More Dessert’ that has this cookie recipe along with some other great treats in it.  Not to mention that she is a fantastic party planner and decorator. If you couldn’t already tell by the decor of this party!

We give it a go on our own! It’s always fun to see what everyone comes up with.


After an amazing cookie decorating session everyone was gifted a Lily Jade bag filled with all sorts of goodies as a thank you for coming. Included with the bag were also Wilton baking supplies to try and make these cookies at home! I can’t wait to use mine and see if I can become a better baker. P.S. This was my first apron ever. Goes to show how much I bake. lol.
