Happy Mardi Gras!

Emma Masterpiece Theatre BBC

Attending a dull and disastrous party is a lot like chipping a tooth with teeth-whitening strips on. So, if you happen to find yourself at one of these (and there’s no way of salvaging it) head home early from the Mardi Gras party since you’re feeling so “sick”—we’ve got a few gourmet goodies to keep you occupied!

  1. Tune in (online) to BBC Masterpiece Classic Theater’s Emma—watch the trailer preview.

  2. Indulge in some gourmet sweetness.

Of course, if you’d rather not celebrate solo, no matter the turnout of the festivities, be sure to bring the party host/hostess an irresistible gourmet cookie gift basket — May the celebrations begin!

Happy Mardi Gras everyone!

5 Ways To Celebrate President’s Day!

American Flag

Presidents’ Day, nestled between Lincoln’s birthday (February 12th) and Washington’s birthday (February 22nd), this federal holiday is observed on the third Monday of February and falls on Monday, February 15th this year.

  1. Have kids? Go here and find some great kids activities, games, crafts, and historical facts! Plan a small President’s Day party for your children and their friends and serve gourmet cookies to munch on while the kiddies are making log cabins out of pretzels and white cotton-ball wigs.

  2. Visit your nearest Museum of History.

  3. Attend or host a patriotic event—no events going on in your area and can’t make it to Washington D.C.? Host a President’s Day party of your own! Serve foods that are inspired by U.S. Presidents’ favorite foods. All of our Presidents were of course different in their tastes: from gourmets to medical restricted diets, some loved classic French cuisine (Jefferson, Kennedy), while others liked “down home” simple food (Adams, Johnson), and some efficiently viewed food as fuel (Lincoln, Wilson). Whatever you decide to serve, incorporating the national colors red, white and blue will transform any meal into one that is patriotic!

  4. Make an effort to support our troops and support our veterans. Whether that means sending letters, or monetary donations to our active troops, to visiting your veteran neighbor down the street (bring treats and ask him/her to share some of their stories!), a little attention for all of sacrifice and service they’ve given certainly goes a long way.

  5. Brush up on history (U.S. or otherwise) by watching a few clips on the History Channel or stop by Barnes & Noble and pick up a book or documentary about something in history that intrigues you.

Party Inspiration: Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday Party Ideas

Super Bowl Sunday Party Ideas

Since we, at Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies, love to entertain, we thought we could share helpful hints to help inspire you to transform something as casual and laid back as a Super Bowl Party into a fun and stylish affair. Let’s start with looks and move on from there…

  1. Decorate the TV room with your team colors, and if, heaven forbid, you’re having guests over that are rooting for the opposing team…keep your composure and simply decorate each side of the room with a different team color—perhaps even tape a line down the center of the room for some fun rivalry.

  2. Place a few mini foam fingers in a bowl for the kids to find and play with and you’re good to go (you may even want to set up a separate kids room so that they can watch what they want and play/talk freely).

  3. Arrange for pizza delivery or a giant sub sandwich, with healthy options like veggies and dip. Keep plenty of beverages out in a bucket of ice to whet everyone’s whistle. The next step should really help too (if could be so bold to say so ourselves)…

  4. Create an elegant dessert bar by presenting copious amounts of gourmet cookies on a table—to help with rising anger issues…okay, hopefully it doesn’t get too bad, but safety 1st! Add a touch of glamour to the room with vase of fresh flowers, and voila!
