Ermygosh, I canNOT believe I didn’t post this sooner!
My sweet pal, Anna, and I started this tradition four years ago (you can see a past exchange HERE). Why I don’t have more exchanges on here is beyond me.. They’re SO fun, not to mention very photogenic events!
So, I suppose it would have made sense to postpone this post until mid-November, and I’ll run it again then. BUT, I do want to say that cookie exchanges are NOT limited to Christmas! New Year’s Resolutions will be forgotten in a week or two (if they haven’t been already), so why not host a Valentine’s cookie exchange and tea? Hmmm.. there’s an idea.
Since Anna and I have been doing these for so long, we kind of have it down to a science. This year’s happened to be on my birthday, so I wanted to make it earlier in the day. I made a breakfast casserole and Anna made a fruit salad. We had mimosas, seltzer, bloodys, hot chocolate and coffee. We bought party favors from World Market (hot chocolate cones this year!) and I got Pyrex snowflake baking dishes and ADORABLE tea towels from the Nutcracker Market in Houston as prizes. Categories this year where: Best Looking, Best Tasting, and Most Original.
I look forward to this tradition every year! If I move away from D.C. next year, this tradition is continuing! Seriously.. I WILL be coming back no matter what.
