My daughter held her third annual cookie exchange (CEx3
as she called it) this past December; shes in 10th grade.
Attached is a copy of the
invitation she created (with a little help from others ideas
posted on your website). We didnt get many photos because about 5 minutes
after all the girls started to arrive, our power went out! The power stayed
out the entire evening, so 2007 will always be known as the Candlelight
Cookie Exchange. It created a whole new atmosphere for the party, which
was pretty fun.
The girls still played their games: left-right story (each girl ended up
with some fun Christmas socks) and the unwrapping game (girls had to wear
white furry gloves and a sequined santa hat while they tried to unwrap a
gift until the next person rolled the number 6 on a dice).
The hardest part for that game turned out to be seeing the number on the
die!!! We only had one working flashlight in the house and it was a miniature
one, so someone had to try shining the light on the dice as it went around
the circle for each girl to take a turn.
Each year, I enjoy helping my daughter plan for this party and love
watching her and her friends have so much fun at the cookie exchange. They
did an awesome job with their cookie presentations this year, too! See photo
of the cookie table attached.
After the party, my daughter copied everyones recipes, put them
on index cards along with pictures of each type of cookie, gussied them up
with color ink and Christmas stickers, then put them in little recipe boxes
and gave them to each participant
.wrapped in some curling ribbon along
with a new cookie cutter.
Your website is great!
