How to Host a Holiday Cookie Swap Party
This holiday season, get in the spirit with a party concept that'll satisfy every guest's sweet tooth and spread wintry cheer. Inviting friends over for a midday cookie swap is a super-simple way to gather loved ones and mix and mingle over treats, and when guests get to contribute their own recipes and baked goods to the spread, hostess duties are a breeze. Simply set a neutral foundation with tableware that you likely already have, then add some sparkly handmade details to turn up the holiday factor in a flash.
One Smart Cookie
Transform your dining room table into the ultimate cookie buffet. By choosing to stick to a neutral palette, you can pull from entertaining supplies that you likely already have: a natural burlap linen, white and glass serving pieces, and classic small snack plates.
