Christmas Cookie Swap Instructions and Cookie Swap Invitations

Cookie swaps are held throughout the year but they are most popular during the holiday seasons. A cookie swap party is a great time to get together with family, friends and neighbors. Cookie swap parties are also becoming popular in the work place with co-workes getting together to swap cookies.

Instructions for a Cookie Swap Party

Ask your guests to bring:

1. A dozen of cookies to swap.

2. A container so that they have something to carry their cookies home in.

3. Copies of their recipe (enough copies for each guest).

Instructions for the Host

1. Have a large table on hand to display the cookies.

2. Display cookies that will be enjoyed during the party and not the exchange on a separate table or platter.

3. Play some festive holiday music.

4. Serve refreshments (milk, champagne, eggnog or other drinks).

5. Have foil or cellophane bags on hand for guests who forget to bring a cookie container.
