I'm throwing my first ever cookie exchange party mid December. Everyone will be baking a dozen sugar free cookies per person attending. I'm really looking forward to it, it just sounds so fun Have any of you thrown one before, or attended one? As hostess, I'm wondering what I should put out in terms of refreshments etc. I have set the time for 2p.m. so people will have eaten lunch and be home in time for dinner hour. But mid afternoon I figure etiquette would lean towards offering some light snacks. I'm on a pretty tight budget so it can't be anything too pricey but I do like to do things "right" so to speak. Decorations are a no brainer since the house will be decked out for the holidays anyhow. I am going to hand paint a festive cookie jar and have everyone put their name in a draw for it as a door prize. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soda, bottled water will be out for people. But I'm really wondering about snack type things that I should have out??? I am thinking there will be about 10-12 people in total coming over. S/O will be on holiday break by then so the day before we can prep ahead anything if needed, so really it is no problem if it is a time consuming idea, just so long as the cost is low lol.
