Cookie Exchange!

So many of you have asked about the details from my Cookie Exchange party and I’m finally sharing! PSA: This post is literally FILLED with pictures, so beware 🙂

I sent out these cute invites in early November in hopes everyone could come!

I had a cute little “boxing” station with lots of Christmasy containers for the girls to take the cookies home in!  I also (always) provide favors for parties so the girls took home a cute little throw and those cute mugs on the counter!

I served appetizers, wine and hot cocoa (thankfully a few of the girls brought some too!).

And a few pictures of the cookies 🙂

Missing: Lalo, Sugar and Gingerbread cookies!

And after visiting a bit, we headed upstairs to the photo-booth and games!

We played Christmas Family Feud  which was pretty funny!  Then we headed downstairs for the “cookie testing” and voting part!  There was a tie initially between the Gingerbread cookies and Snowman Pretzels but the Snowmen ended up winning!

After she opened her winning gift, we played Reverse Christmas Charades!  This was a pretty funny game 🙂 Easy, by all means but funny!

I usually am not a fan of charades.. I can’t act!! But with reverse charades, it makes it so much easier when you’re acting it out with a group of people versus just yourself!

Then we had a little more fun with the photo-booth!

Gosh these girls are fun!

All in all = the party was a success!  I wish I would have taken more pictures of all the decor and how I set it up but maybe next time I’ll remember!

It was such a great time having a girls night and the games/cookies definitely helped! Oh yeah.. and the wine #givemeallthewine  I can’t wait for the next party!

The hubs was gone during the party (girls only!) but showed up for a quick picture after the girls left!

Have any of  you hosted a cookie exchange?  Anything I totally missed and need to add next year?  I’m always looking for things to add to my parties!

It’s almost the weekend and I can’t believe how close we are to the last weekend before Christmas!!  Such a bittersweet feeling – I can’t wait for Christmas but I also never want it to end! Any of y’all with me on that one?!
