Catherine Binkley's 2nd Cookie Exchange
Lakewood, CA

I L-O-V-E your website! I refer to it all year round for inspiration and ideas. I held my 2nd Cookie Exchange this year with 14 guests attending. I love having new people attend that have NO IDEA what the heck a cookie exchange is. They usually have the most fun.

We had a delicious variety of cookies and many ladies went all out on their displays. I gave 1st and 2nd prizes to Best Display and Best Looking Cookie. I let the guests vote for 1st place and I choose for 2nd place.

We played the Left/Right game and the Name Game. It was so much fun. This year I ordered appetizers from my favorite caterer. I had an Italian theme for dinner so I was able to prepare most of that the day before. That worked out so well because I actually got to enjoy myself at MY party.

This party was so much more successful than my first one. My guests could not stop talking about it for weeks. I am already planning for 2008!
