cookie exchange party

I have to admit I'm not a huge halloween fan.   I think there are a lot of great party ideas out there as well as crafts but I'm more of a Christmas gal.  I love everything about Christmas and have all ready been working on Christmas lists.  This year I've decided to host a holiday cookie exchange.  I've never done one before-- I think I've been to one but I was young and I don't count that since my mom did the baking.

I'm definitely going to be getting my invitations from Party Box Design, Jess has a cute invitation up on her site that would be perfect...
I love the colors, not only do they incorporate the traditional red & green but I love the pink and turquoise.  Perfect!

Since I've never hosted one I did a little online research because I wasn't sure what the do's and don'ts were.  I just googled "cookie exchange rules", this site came up Cookie Exchange.  I think there are a lot of great tips on it, especially the rules or guidelines.  I'll be including these with my invitations.  If you have any other tips, feel free to share especially if you have first hand experience.

I thought it would be also fun to host a Party Lite party during the cookie exchange, so that's all set up.  Girls afternoon with wine, cookies, appetizers and shopping- what could be better?
