Henna Elephant Cookies

Henna-inspired cookies are quickly becoming some of my favorites.  These cookies were created to celebrate a child's Annaprashana or "First Rice."  This is something that I hadn't heard of before, but after I looked it up I thought it was a pretty amazing idea.  I would have loved to do this to celebrate Oliver's first food.

Lev's mom asked for elephants that were personalized with Lev's name and decorated with henna designs.

She also requested paisley-shaped cookies with similar henna designs.  I just loved the teal, orange and white color scheme for his celebration.

I hope that you enjoyed your first solid food, Lev!  I enjoyed working on your party favors :)
