Christmas Cookie Exchange.

Nothing puts you in the spirit of the season quite like a cookie exchange party. The cookies themselves are the main focal point of the party, which makes this type of party a very affordable and easy way to entertain.We asked each guest to bring four dozen home-made cookies with them. They specified which cookie they would bring when they responded to the invite. This way it prevented duplicate cookie recipes. However, there did seem to be a running peppermint theme throughout the night.

Since our cookie buffet was the focal point of the party, we designed the table so guests could have easy access to all of the treats. To add visual interest to our buffet, we elevated platters and used cake pedestals to create height. For a unified look, as well as to create a blank canvas for the different varieties of cookies, we used white dishware. We filled in the gaps of our table with fresh flowers and white unscented candles.

While we had a main buffet table dedicated to the cookies, we also created another buffet with carafes of hot chocolate, coffee, and ice water. We set up a small hot chocolate bar so guests could customize their beverage. We offered whipped cream, sprinkles, peppermint sticks, miniature marshmallows, and chocolate chips to add to their hot beverage.
