Cookie Decorating Party

Tis' the season for cookie decorating and we thought we'd give you a few ideas to make your decorating party cute & functional. Here's a few things you will need for the party:

1. Butcher paper - spread white butcher paper over all of your decorating surfaces to keep things clean & give a nice blank slate for the cookies

2. Squeeze bottles - these bottles make applying icing so much easier and allow for much more intricate decorating

3. Cookie Cutters - Of course you'll need cookie cutters! (unless you buy store bought cookies - no shame in that!) We love these classic shapes in gold. 

4. Sprinkles - sprinkles, and more sprinkles! You cannot have too many sprinkles in our opinion. 

5. Cupcake liners - Sprinkles, candies, and other decorations fit perfectly in cupcake liners & can be spread out at each decorating station.

6, 7, 8. Wooden spoons & scoops - Scoop & sprinkle with Sucre Shop utensils in each cupcake liner. Our utensils are perfect for little hands to use & make the decorating table very festive. 

9.  Baker's Box - Send home your beautifully decorated cookies in a cute bakers box. Be sure to line with wax paper so that each cookie arrives in tact. 

10. Muffin tin - For a more transportable option, fill your muffin tin with sprinkles that you can pass down the table with minimal spilling.

Did we miss anything? We'd love to hear your cookie decorating secrets!

Are Paper Plates Recyclable?

In general, paper plates are NOT recyclable, but our bamboo plates are!
 If a paper plate is used, it is definitely not recyclable, as food grease and crumbs cannot be separated from the paper in the recycling process (so you should avoid throwing that pizza box in the recycling bin, too). It is important NOT to throw paper plates that have been contaminated by food (and other contaminated paper products, such as napkins, paper towels, tissues, food packaging) because it can contaminate an entire batch of recycling.

If the plate is coated with plastic or wax it becomes even more difficult to recycle because the coating must be separated from the paper. Styrofoam plates are the worst choice of all, as the production of styrofoam (and the recycling process) creates significant amounts of environmental toxins.
The paper plate IS recyclable if it is not contaminated by food (for example, plates you may have used for crafts that don't have glue, paint, or sticker residue). If the uncontaminated plate is coated in wax or plastic, make sure your recycler accepts mixed-paper for recycling. Clean styrofoam plates may also be recyclable, depending on whether or not your local recycling facility accepts styrofoam. Find out information about your local recycling programs
Your best choice of action is to avoid using paper plates at all costs. Whenever possible use plates that can be washed and reused or plastic plates that can be cleaned prior to recycling. There are also some great biodegradable plates out there made out of bamboo (such as those by I Spy) and other 100% biodegradable materials. These can go in the garbage and are great for your compost bin. Uncoated plates are also an excellent dry material for your compost bin.
