So, are you feeling the excitement about the arrival of spring? All the little signs like longer days, warmer temperatures, and proud blades of green grass appearing everywhere, are starting to have their usual affect on me. An eagerness to go outside and enjoy nature more, (especially with these guys), to lean towards choosing more fruits and vegetables to eat besides hearty, comfort (hibernation) food, and to decorate my cookies in a more springlike, pastel color palette. The last one’s probably a bit of an odd thing to state, but I think you know by now that I’m a
bit of a cookie nerd.
This spring’s a little different than usual though. We’re in the midst of a home renovation, and our kitchen has officially been gutted. You can see a glimpse of it here on Instagram – as well as our last blast of winter, I’m sure! Because I’m not able to bake and decorate right now, I thought I’d share some spring cookie ideas from the blog archives.
Spring Decorated Cookie Ideas
Whether it be your favorite spring-like color combination, flowers, critters, a “love is in the air” or wedding theme, the following ideas can be adapted in so many ways to suit your sweet idea of spring.
Flowers, Bees and Butterfly Cookies
It seems I like the teal and yellow color combination! Tutorials on all the following cookies can be found by clicking on the titles below each photo.

Love is in the Air
p.s. Thanks for the comments and questions on my last post on making stand mixer cookies. I’ve been a little busier than usual with renovations etc., but will get to your questions there in the next few days.j
