These button cupcake toppers and shortbread cookies are so colorful and fun together!
Making the button cupcake toppers is easy once you choose colors you like together.
The button cookies have contrast-color icing dots for holes.

Right before the party:

  The plates of button cookies and cupcakes are so cheerful and happy!

Frost your cupcakes (I used a pastry bag with a large icing tip and did a single puff of pink icing on each mini), and add a topper to each one.

Put your cookies and cupcakes on plates, mixing the colors or arranging them in pretty patterns (they can look especially cute with real buttons scattered around and in between, too).

Make sure any children at your party know that the toppers and any other real button decorations are not toys to play with or put in their mouths!

Have fun, and take plenty of photos!

We could have button cookies for treats, swap buttons, make quicky button crafts. I think it would be oodles of fun.
