Fiesta Friday - One Smart Cookie

It it graduation season again, and it's time to break out of the luau theme...again. Do you have a smart cookie graduating this year? Well then, let the world know with a cookie-themed soiree!

With the dessert table as the new black this party season, use your skills to set up a cookie buffet as part of your party setup. Since I'm not about reinventing the wheel, here's a repost of last year's cookie buffet post with fresh updates.

Who could resist a milk-and-cookie graduation send-off? And note all the different ways the confections are displayed, from apothecary jars to buckets, just make it special with labels, ribbons, the possibilities are endless.
