The Inaugural Cookie Exchange

Grab Grab Grab

Today we hosted a Holiday Cookie Exchange at our house. Basically it is a party where everyone brings a couple batches of cookies and we all exchange some so we have a variety of cookies to enjoy during the holidays.

Overall the party was a success! It was nice for people to come over who haven’t seen our house yet. We decorated it as best we could.. bought a tree and everything. If it weren’t for the party we probably wouldn’t have done that. For appetizers i made california rolls, cheese and salami crackers, tuna sandwiches cutout as trees, turkey-cranberry sandwiches cutout as stars, spanokopita (frozen from costco), melon balls, veggies, chips and onion dip. Also made some yummy punch made of guava juice, 7up and pineapple juice. I bought a new punch bowl from Crate and Barrel that looks like a fish bowl. I forgot to take photos of all my hard work… but you could probably see it in the background of some of the photos if you look good. Here is the link to the Flickr Photoset.
