Our 6th Annual Cookie Exchange

My SIL and I hosted our 6th Cookie Exchange Party! I put battery tea lights in my Crystal rooster and milk glass hens for table decor! The cookie "labels" are ready.
My cookies are baked and ready, although not displayed particularly creatively! They are VERY chocolatey!
Guests have arrived with their cookies. Yummy!
The buffet is ready! More yummy!
Isn't this platter of Surprise Crinkles pretty?
These Chocolate Butter Cookies won Best Presentation!
The Giant Molasses Cookies were a runner-up for Best Presentation!
Prizes this year were scented candles. I just couldn't get aprons made! Besides a platter of different cookies, everyone went home with an apron ornament and a recipe booklet. (I used pre-gathered eyelet to make the aprons!)

This year, we had 13 participants including my SIL and myself. The Santa's helper outfit won "Most Spirited Outfit" hands down! We had such fun truly enhanced by wonderful guests!
Y'all Come Back!


  1. Beautiful! I went to my first cookie exchange this was so fun.

    Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Sounds like lots of caloric and sweet fun! Merry Christmas!

  3. That looks ever so delicious.
    Are those cake plates stacked on top of each other?


  4. Yes, I bought them 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I've used them individually and together numerous times. Since my space is limited on my island, I decided to go up!

  5. Everything looks so beautiful, & those cookies look yummy! Merry Christmas! Patti

  6. Soooo sorry I missed the Cookie party, the island full of "goodies" really makes me sad I missed it, I know first hand how you "go all out" and everything not only looks good, it's delicious. Received my invitation Christmas Eve afternoon, postmarked the 14th, envelope looked a bit tattered, must have gone the North Pole before it arrived on San Antonio Street. What I really missed was "our time" before the party. Love, Mum


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
