Cookie Swap Party

Do you love sugar? Having a great time with your friends? I totally recommend throwing a cookie party, it's was crazy amounts of fun and at the end you get to take home some ridiculous amount of yummy cookies!




Thanks to Pinterest we had lots of great ideas and recipes!


The skewers were from Wal-Mart and just put a cute ornament on it. {of course AFTER you make one of your guest shave them down to fit and give herself a splinter}




This Cranberry Margarita recipe is delish! I'm not sure I've ever mixed tequila with cranberry juice, but it's quite tasty!


This is everyone who made a recipe they found on Pinterest :)


We played a reindeer game that was a lot of fun and made for some great pictures! You divide up in to teams and for 5 minutes you blow up balloons and stuff them in to pantyhose for your head reindeer.  The team with the most balloons inside their antlers wins!


The winning team! {Oh and how cute in the Rudolph nose! I think it's from Target}


Christmas socks were worn by all :)


There were some many amazing treats, like these Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies. We didn't run a contest for best cookie, but because my Mom did so much hard work I made her the unofficial cookie judge :) And the winner is.....


Jen! {She also blogs over at Life, Crafts, & Whatever} Her cookies were delish, she HANDMADE the dough!


How cute are those stars! Recipe found here.  She told me they were a lot of work, but I'm going to go ahead and say it was worth it!


I made everyone a cookie tin with some spray paint and chalkboard paint from, where else, Pinterest.


I bet there were some very happy boyfriends and husbands who got a crap ton of cookies that night :)
