What I love most about the holiday season is the amount of time that we carve out to be with family and friends. It’s the time of year when you have your evenings booked for holiday parties and weekends reserved for shopping with friends. And if you have a sweet tooth like me then it’s also a great excuse to bake cookies! So today I’m sharing a fun party idea that brings family and friends together — a cookie exchange party!
A cookie exchange party simplifies your holiday baking because your guests bring several batches of one kind of cookie to share! At the party, encourage your guests to sample, trade and then package the cookies to take home! Voila — now you have an assortment of cookies just in time for the holidays!
A cookie exchange is a great option if you’re looking for an easy and effortless party! Just be sure to outline the expectations of the cookie exchange party in your invitations. Also, give your guests a general idea of how many cookies to bring based on the number of guests. Lastly, encourage your guests to bring a cookie jar, like this festive plaid cookie jar to take their cookies home. For more steps on how to host your own cookie exchange party, check out the video below and head on over to Pottery Barn’s blog.
