A cookie exchange is where you invite a bunch of friends for a party and swap cookies.  Each person bakes severyal dozen of the same cookie and everyone walks away with a variety of cookies. 

Some hosteses have you bake a dozen for each participant but I like big parties and have each gal make 3-4 dozen cookies in packs of 4 cookies and bring copies of their recipe.  We have coffie, tea, extra cookies, snacks, lots of girl talk, exchange cookie recipes and cookies.  A little twist I like to add to my Cookie Exchange is helping others. . .last time people braught things for the Women's Shelter as well and some gals made an extra batch of cookies.

sounds like fun! i've gone to a similar sort of party- everyone brought a bunch of wool and we made a pile of scarves for the women's refuge. everyone brought a plate for lunch.

i'm sure your event will be a success... you might like to try www.chefs.com if you or any of your guests need some inspiration

I'm thinking of a cookie exchange for my Christmas party in early December.  My theme is "Loco for Cocoa," and I plan to have several different hot chocolate recipes, with or without "adult" mix-ins (Bailey's, Kahlua, etc.).  Maybe all the cookies would have to involve chocolate....

I'd love to hear some clever new "twists" on this "old school" tradition.  princessblueberry, I like the charitable dimension to your party.

Keep those ideas coming!

Sounds like a fun theme!  LOVE chocolate but what woman doesent? (ok. . .so I know a few but most. . . Tongue)

My theme for decorations and prizes is Vintage Christmas. . .found a 12 pack of vintage Christmas Balls and am going to pair thoes up with bath goodies wrapped in white tissue paper for the Centerpieces and prizes.  Then I've got a red and white fashon scarf and a box of party light candles for the big prizes. 

I'll be playing Celtic Harp Christmas CD and maybe the Mothers CD (also irish, a compolation of singer. . .all songs about mothers, fitting for a women's party as all have or are one Cool )

Am going to have everyone introdce themselves and tell a story about their favorite cookie.  Who knowes how big the party will get cause I've offered to host for all the ladies in Church.  We'll see what they say during the meeting crosses her fingers I hope, I hope!  LOL, can you tell I like to host parties?  This crazy lady will do a 7 course meal just for fun. . .insane I know but still fun!!  Wink

Oh!  Vintage Christmas!!  What a great theme...so up my alley.  I definitely use entertaining as one of my creative outlets, since it involves invitations (paper crafting), cooking (well...not my strongest suit), and decorating (again, I'm crafting).  Sounds like we are cut from the same cloth!

Have fun and thanks for the great ideas.

for party favors, an easy thing would be cool cookie cutters (like those large copper ones) tied with pretty ribbon.  Simple, affordable, useful, tasteful, and relates to the cookie exchange theme. 

I have ordered some chocolate candles from a local store to give as party favors at my "Loco for Cocoa" party.  Everyone likes candles!  I have seen plenty of "Sugar Cookie"-scented candles, so that would be a good tie-in for the theme.

Somewhere out there there is a recipe for applesause ornaments (you mix up a dough with applesause and spices as main ingredient and dry them. . .I plan on making thoes next year)

Last time I had everyone bring copies of their recipe and had cookbooks made out of envylopes made for them and bath goodies that I'd made.

I know this topic is WAY old, but I'm thinking of hosting one of these for all the women in my family. Usually we all go Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but many of us just can't handle the crowds any more and get too feisty Smiley

I thought this might be a fun alternative...and give some of the ladies a morning/afternoon away from their spouses and kids - who doesn't want that!? Help them get a head start on their baking too!

I just thought I'd bump this up for any one else who might be thinking of the same type of party...or maybe it will inspire some one to have a crafty swap party...every one brings some supplies and you all make something - either as gifts, to keep yourself, or donate to a charity (blankets/scarves/hats for shelters or children's organizations, for example).

Thanks for the ideas, girlies...I hope others chime in! Smiley
