Christmas Cookie Party

What better way to get into the holiday spirit than with friends and cookies?!  I hosted a Christmas cookie exchange party last weekend, and had a blast doing it.  The rules were simple:  Bring a 1/2 dozen cookies per person attending, plus an extra dozen to taste during the party.  That way each guest ends up going home with an assorted variety of cookies.

I kept this party sweet and simple.  For decorations I made hanging poms (check this tutorial out if you've never made them before).  And of course I had all of my regular Christmas decor up.

For food, I had mini pigs in a blanket (with gingerbread toothpics), spinach, artichoke and cheese bread bowls, and chips and dip.  I had a drink table set up with yummy wassail, candy cane cocktails, and egg nog.

I had two prizes to give out- one for best tasting cookie, and one for the best looking cookie.  The prizes were a cute holiday potholder and towel set, with a silicone spatula in a cute little bucket.  The favors are rolled up oven mitts, tied with a ribbon and candy cane.

We also did an ornament swap, white elephant style.  All in all, it turned out to be a really fun little party, and I definitely plan on doing it again next year!  Merry Christmas :)
