This year marked our 4th Annual Cookie Exchange and it so much fun! This year, I had both family and friends and didn’t really want it to end. We had a variety of cookies brought to the Cookie Exchange and everyone was eager to box up their goodies and take them home to share. We also had a lot of great prizes, sponsored by Wilton, Hershey’s, Johnsonville, and Smucker’s. Frank did a great job with the Trivia game we had! He printed out a variety of different holiday questions and placed them in a container. We went around the table and the guests pulled out a question and tried to answer it the best they could. If they got it right, they were able to head over to the prize table and pick out a goody to take home with them. And let me tell you, there were some pretty awesome prizes!!!
We had a paper for our guests to sign their name and email addresses for the Cookie Exchange.
We had a banner above the prize table letting our guests know who the prizes were sponsored by.
This is our table full of prizes from Wilton, Johnsonville, Smucker’s, and Hershey’s.
We had the plates and boxes displays with examples for our guests when it was time to exchange cookies.
Nothing like some Hershey’s candies to wet the appetite for yummy cookies at our Cookie Exchange!
I made delicious Johnsonville Breakfast Muffin Cups for us to snack on and they were a hit!
Everybody was very excited about the prizes they won at the Cookie Exchange!!! A big thanks goes to our sponsors!!!
