Treats for the Brokers' Open House

Yesterday, I mentioned that you could probably see several brokers' open houses on Bravo or HGTV every weekend. It's clear that those vary from place to place. The agents on Bravo's real estate shows are usually selling multi-million dollar properties and their brokers' opens look like swanky parties. I think Charlottesville open houses tend to be a little more modest. Still, I wanted to do something special and a little unexpected to make our condo memorable.

I purchased cookie cutters from Williams Sonoma a while back with plans to use them on table numbers for our wedding. The table numbers were fun to make, but we wound up doing something else. I felt a little silly having the cookie cutters and I'm glad I found a way to finally put them to use.

I originally wanted to put our address on the cookies, but the cutters only come with letters. W-S let me down. I played with a few different messages, then bounced ideas off Marc and our agent. We arrived at simply putting the name of our neighborhood on the cookies.

The name of the neighborhood itself wasn't too specific, so I decided to put the cookies in bags and add a tag with specific information about our unit. I used an Avery product that was pretty infuriating to manipulate, but around 1 AM on the night before the open house, I got the labels printed. I'm blocking out some info in the pictures below. The front has a picture of our living room with the address and the back of each tag has our MLS number, the real estate agency's logo, and our agent's contact info. 

 I'm really happy with the finished product!

Since those cookies were a favor for agents to take home, I also made a batch of cookies for everyone to eat while visiting. Our realtor seems pleased!

Is this a little over the top? Sure. But I had fun with it.


  1. I was wondering how you did the message... so cleaver!
