4. New Years Eve Cookie Favors – These are so economical and easy to make. You don’t have to be artistic to create sugar cookies in the shape of a triangle. Just use a simple polka dot design , with a tassel at the top of the hat. Wrap with a clear cello bag and tie with a ribbon. You can even create frosting, using food coloring, to match your wedding colors. The nice thing about cookies is that guests of all ages can enjoy them.
